About The City Law School

The City Law School is one of London’s major law schools and offers an impressive range of academic and professional courses. Located in the heart of legal London, the School was the first in London to educate students and practitioners at all stages of legal education. At the postgraduate level, the School’s high-quality courses for law and non-law graduates are highly regarded by the profession

Postgraduate students at all levels benefit from the research expertise and practice experience of the School’s academic staff, many of whom are leading experts in their fields. Research spans across all major areas of law, including: criminal law and criminal justice; commercial law and contract law; European law; public international law; media law; maritime law and transport; and professional practice.

The Graduate Diploma in Law allows graduates who have completed a non-law degree to begin studying for a career in law, by completing the seven core foundation subjects required for professional examinations in one year. The Bar Vocational Studies  (BVS) and Legal Practice Course (LPC), offered at City’s Gray’s Inn campus, have a worldwide reputation for excellence and equip students with the skills and knowledge required for legal practice. Finally, the Master of Laws programme (LLM) gives students the flexibility to deepen their understanding of particular areas of law while retaining the practice focus that is one of the hallmarks of the School’s approach.
