The law school
Bristol Law School at UWE ("University of the West of England") is a dynamic, active community of staff and students which has established itself over a period of 40 years as one of the largest law schools in the United Kingdom. Through its two departments - the Department of Law which covers the LLB, LLM and Ph.D programmes and the Bristol Institute of Legal Practice which offers academic study and training to become a Barrister or Solicitor – it is able to provide students with the widest and most comprehensive portfolio of programmes and research opportunities available.
The School prefers candidates to have an upper second class honours degree in law or equivalent. Students with lower second class honours degrees will be considered. Non law graduates may be admitted if they have relevant work experience.
English Language Requirements
All students whose first language is not English must be able to provide recent evidence that their spoken and written command of the English language satisfies UWE's English language proficiency requirements.
At Bristol Law School (BLS), you can choose to study one of ten taught masters courses that not only cover a diverse range of challenging but interesting legal disciplines, but also cater for the individual. Now in its tenth year, the Masters programme has recently been expanded to include two exciting new degrees - Environmental Law and Sustainable Development and International Banking and Finance.
