For almost 200 years, UCL Laws has been one of the leading centres of legal education in the world. Recognised as offering an outstanding educational experience to our students, we combine a strong theoretical foundation in the law with practical teaching from world-leading academics and practitioners.

Ranked first in the UK for its research environment, the UCL Laws community of intellectually dynamic scholars responds to today’s global challenges. Through our research, we help to shape government policy, national and international law and its practice. As part of Legal London, we attract the leading figures in the field to contribute to our vibrant programme of events, informing public debate around social, legal, environmental and economic issues.
