About the university

The University of Law is the largest law school in the United Kingdom and was formed in 1962 as The College of Law of England and Wales. It offers law degrees, specialized legal training, and continuing professional development courses for British barristers and lawyers. Its beginnings can be found around 1876.

Prior to receiving university status in 2012, the College of Law's educational and training business was divided off and incorporated as a private limited company. The College of Law had been established by royal charter as a charity in 1975. The College of Law Limited and The University of Law Limited were created from this. The college was given the authority to offer degrees in 2006. When it was given university status in 2012, it changed its name to The University of Law (ULaw) and became the first for-profit educational institution in the UK.

The university has nine campuses in the UK, located in Birmingham, Bristol, Chester, Guildford, Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, and Sheffield, in addition to an overseas campus in Hong Kong.
