Our close connections with prestigious law schools, institutions and law firms across the world provide a wealth of opportunities for both staff and students. 

  • At undergraduate level we have a range of courses which offer you the chance to study overseas as part of your degree. At postgraduate level we partner with many international law schools.
  • The School is a founding member of the European Law School Network. The network was established to develop the European Lawyer Programme, a unique programme enabling students to develop a deeper understanding of three legal systems in Europe.  
  • We are also a member of the Law Schools Global League. Established in 2012, the league seeks to stimulate academic debate and cooperation in both education and research concerning the globalisation of law. 
  • The School is also a founding member of the Center for Transnational Legal Studies (CTLS). The Center, a consortium of leading global law schools led by Georgetown University, brings together faculty, students and practitioners from diverse legal cultures to study international, transnational and comparative law.
