Welcome to Durham Law School! We are delighted that you have chosen to study at Durham Law School and hope that your time in Durham will be challenging, fulfilling, and will prepare you well to make a success of your chosen career.
The Law School is at an exciting point in its history. We have occupied our purpose built and state of the art premises since 2012 and have doubled our staff in order to be able to offer a wider range of optional modules than ever before. We are committed to providing not only an excellent environment in which to engage with and research the foundational law subjects, but also to offering a degree programme which is diverse and innovative in terms of both content and teaching methods. Alongside your studies, you will have the opportunity to engage in a growing number of extra-curricular activities led by law students - including mooting and working on a range of pro bono activities - and will benefit from our close relationships with a range of leading employers. In short, we aim to provide a supportive environment in which our students can flourish academically and personally; I look forward to meeting you and wish you all the best for your time at Durham.
