About the Law School
Last updated on 7/20/2016 Print this page
It is our mission to integrate the best traditions of legal
scholarship into a modern context, and to teach and research law in
a manner which reflects the international nature of our staff and
student body. We seek to maintain a broad, critical and innovative
approach to legal education, often driven by our original research,
which opens opportunities both within and beyond the legal
profession. We strive to work within a scholarly, professional,
supportive and friendly community in which mutual respect among
staff and students is maintained at all times, and which seeks to
contribute to society locally, nationally and internationally.
The Law School was awarded grants of over £4,000 to
create high-quality eLearning materials for our first year
students, and £25,000 from in order to improve its library
We are very grateful for the Trust's present and past
assistance, which continues to benefit our students, and we welcome
its continued recognition of the high quality of legal education
provided by Hull Law School.
