About us

Bristol Law School has been a leading provider of legal education for over 40 years. Join our diverse and inclusive learning community and you’ll benefit from growing your network, volunteering in our Business and Law Clinic and gaining invaluable legal work experience.

Located in the heart of Frenchay Campus, our £55 million Law School has been purpose built to provide inspiring spaces for practice-led learning and collaboration. Bring your learning to life in our mock courtrooms, used by the Western Circuit, Civil Justice Centre and Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

We’ve established connections with professional regulatory bodies, plus regional and national law firms, chambers and businesses, offering mentoring, internships and placements. We’ve also built an extensive global network of partners, offering opportunities to study abroad.

Our world-leading researchers collaborate with national and international organisations on Public International Law, Environment Law and Financial Crime. From environmental law to criminal justice, we’re creating solutions to real-world challenges.
