Law is taught to the highest of standards at Queen Mary. The School of Law is ranked first in London and third in the UK by the Guardian University Guide 2018, behind only Oxford and Cambridge.
Located on the doorstep of London’s legal district, we have links with major law firms and frequently host visiting lecturers at the forefront of legal practice in the City. Our academics are some of the UK’s top legal minds, including a number of QCs, who advise high-profile international organisations such as the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Court of Justice in The Hague, the British Parliament and foreign governments.
The School is home to the Legal Advice Centre (LAC), through which students work alongside solicitors to offer free legal advice to the local community.
We have a lively and engaged student body, who run several law-based societies.
