How to find The City Law School

The City Law School is based at the main City, University of London campus situated at Northampton Square in Clerkenwell (EC1) and also at Gray's Inn in Holborn (WC1).

The main university campus in Northampton Square is home to our academic courses: the LLB (Hons), Graduate Entry LLB and the Graduate Diploma in Law. Students are taught in buildings located on the main campus and are supported by academic and administrative staff based in the Gloucester Building (opposite the main University campus).

The Bar Professional Training Course, Legal Practice Course, LLM in Criminal Litigation, LLM in Civil Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution, and LLM Commercial Intellectual Property are taught at our Gray's Inn campus based in Holborn. Students have access to a range of resources and facilities in buildings located at both 4 Gray's Inn Place and Princeton Street.

No matter what course you're studying you will have access to the resources and facilities at both of our campuses, which includes the City's main library based at Northampton Square and our professional law library at our Gray's Inn campus. You will also have access to City's facilities, including: a dedicated careers service, a modern sports and leisure centre, an extensive IT service, and a Student Union that offers a variety of entertainment and clubs.
