History, Affiliations and Rankings

The University of Law is one of the oldest running private educational institutions in the United Kingdom. It is a renowned provider of Law degrees and education to international and national students. Although the University of Law was established in 1962, its roots can be traced back to 1876 with the presence of The Law Society School of Law and the leading tutorial firm: Gibson & Weldon. In 1962, the two collaborated to form the College of Law. It was then in 2012, that the College of Law gained the title of the University and hence, was renamed as the University of Law. It also has strong ties with several barristers' chambers and collaborates with 90 of the UK's top 100 law firms, many of whom send their attorneys and trainees to The University of Law exclusively. The institution also has international ties in the commercial and legal fields. It also has international ties with a variety of educational institutions. The British Council, the University of Reading, the University of Exeter, the University of Liverpool, the University of Chester, and many others are among them.

Accomplishments and Alumni

The underlying notion that future attorneys and business leaders should learn in a realistic, professional, and current setting, with plenty of practical interactive interaction, sets ULaw distinct from other institutions in the UK. That is why ULaw maintains a high contact hour policy and keeps its teaching groups small. In 2006, the University of Law made history by becoming the very first independent university to grant degrees awarding powers by the Privy Council of the UK. In June 2021, global higher education analysts, QS, granted us 5 stars in the World University Rankings. ULaw has received 5 stars in Teaching, Employability, Online Learning, Academic Development, and Inclusiveness, as well as 4 stars in Specialist Criteria for its LLB and Internationalisation, in addition to an overall 5-star rating as an institution and for the Law subject. Furthermore, students can stay connected, keep informed, and take advantage of a variety of carefully negotiated advantages and prices thanks to an alumni network of over 80,000. Some of the notable alumni names include Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London - John Davies, Malawian Member of Parliament - Atupele Muluzi, former CEO of Barclays - John Varley, professional cricketer.
