About The City Law School

The institution

The City Law School is one of London's major law schools offering an impressive range of academic and professional courses. We were the first law school in London to educate students and practitioners at all stages of legal training.

Our academic staff have a wealth of expert teaching and professional legal experience. Their student-focused approach and genuine passion for the study of law gives students access to some of the best legal minds available today.

Postgraduate study

Our courses include the Bar Vocational Studies Course and Legal Practice Course, both taught from our brand new City Law School building, next to City’s main Northampton Square campus. We also offer law conversion programmes for non-law graduates, including the well renowned Graduate Diploma in Law, and the two-year Graduate Entry LLB programme.

Our Master of Laws programme (LLM) gives students the flexibility to enhance their knowledge, choosing from a range of different modules to gain a general Master of Laws award, or specialise in a particular area. We also offer the LLM in International Business Law, delivered via distance learning online.


The School takes an active role in the legal profession, legal research, and the wider business community. The School’s internationally recognised experts lead research across a diverse range of areas, including criminal law, human rights, intellectual property & information technology, and public law. The primary purpose of this research is creating value for society, both locally (in London and the UK) and globally.

Our lecturers are leaders in their respective fields and the impact of our academic research helps inform the development of legal education, the practice of law and the development of UK and international policy.


Our new brand building is located next to City’s main Northampton Square campus. All courses will be delivered from here, with facilities such as a new lecture theatre, a mock court room, and specialist recording rooms, useful for valuable advocacy skills on the Bar course.

You will also have access to a dedicated law library and social space, as well as areas for group work and quiet study. Students can use the university wide facilities and support services including the Careers department, CitySport gym, and join a wide variety of clubs and societies. Students are also invited to be part of The City Law School Student Society. City is part of the University of London, so students are also able to use facilities and resources provided by the University of London, including Senate House Library.
