Nottingham Law School is Legal Education Provider of the Year
Nottingham Law School at Nottingham Trent University has been awarded the Legal Education Provider of the Year Award at the Solicitors Journal Awards ceremony hosted by Andrew Marr.
This award was given in recognition of the Law School’s innovative teaching and commitment to social mobility and diversity.
Nottingham Law School runs a Legal Advice Centre that was granted an ABS licence in October 2015. This centre gives all students the opportunity to work within a fully regulated and functioning 'teaching law firm' as part of their studies. Whilst they are working at the Legal Advice Centre they are supervised by full-time solicitors that are employed by the centre.
Nottingham Law School is extremely innovative and always responds to the needs of legal education, being the first law school to launch a Graduate Diploma in Law, the LLM in Advanced Litigation, LLM in Corporate Law, MBA in Legal Practice and LLM in Advocacy Skills.
Professor Janine Griffiths-Baker, Dean of Nottingham Law School, says, “We are all absolutely thrilled. This award is particularly prestigious and reflects the excellent and innovative work undertaken by the whole School. I was honoured to collect it on behalf of the School and thank everyone for their contribution towards this tremendous achievement. In 2015 Nottingham Law School celebrated 50 years of excellence in delivering legal education, and we have consistently been at the forefront of legal education innovation. We believe that we are a unique and forward-thinking legal education provider which enables our students to achieve in a changing legal world."
Laura Clenshaw, the Managing Editor of Solicitors Journal, explains: “I'm absolutely delighted for Nottingham Law School. They are truly deserving winners in an extremely tough category. Their innovative approach to legal education impressed the panel and their teaching law school model shows they are pioneers within higher education.”
