The University of Law is a specialist private university. It is one of the oldest legal education providers in the UK. Its origins go back to 1876 with the foundation of the leading tutorial firm Gibson & Weldon, which went on to join The Law Society School of Law. In 1962 these two schools became The College of Law. Finally, in 2012 it was granted full university status and became the University of Law.

The University believes that future lawyers and business leaders learn the profession using realistic, contemporary and practical contexts. Therefore, the University’s ethos is to keep class sizes small while keeping contact hours high.

The University has a business school, ULAW Business, and an online Campus ULAW Online. ULAW Online provides a full range of legal degrees, professional training, and a suite of degrees and Masters from the ULAW Business School.

University Ranking

The main university rankings do not include specialist institutions. The university of law falls into this category, so you will not find it in the main rankings tables. However, the university is still assessed for student satisfaction, teaching excellence and employment outcomes by QS. 


The University has had degree awarding powers since 2006.  All of the University’s postgraduate business courses are CMI accredited. 


The University of Law’s online courses offer a flexible way to study full-time or part-time.
