We offer excellent facilities including our dedicated School of Law library; our main University library also contains our extensive collection of legal materials and official publications and is a European Documentation Centre.

Guest speaker presentations and other extra-curricular events round off the academic programme, and allow you to engage with current debates.

Lawyers pursuing ambitious careers will now inevitably have to deal with rules of international provenance, in fields as diverse as human rights or investment protection. You will be well placed for roles in law firms, international institutions, government departments and non-governmental organisations.
