The Dickson Poon School of Law

Why study Law?

Law, more than perhaps any other academic subject, is a discipline which affects all aspects of the modern world. Whether it’s a simple transaction – a contract to buy your groceries in a supermarket - or a huge human rights issue, law is central. It regulates how we, as humans, interact with each other.

When you study as an undergraduate with us in The Dickson Poon School of Law, you join a lively, international student community who are interested in learning from some of the most internationally respected, leading academics in their field.
