About us

Bristol Law School has been successfully involved in legal education for over 40 years and provides high quality courses taught in a fully supportive learning environment.

The school has a record of high levels of student satisfaction and prides itself on the level of pastoral care, mentoring and support offered to all students. This support includes providing study skills advice and aiding students to achieve their maximum potential in preparation for their eventual career. 

We know that studying law is both challenging and rewarding but we believe that by working in partnership with students, alumni, staff and partners we can support students in their chosen career path.
