The College of Law

The College of Law of England and Wales is a private educational institution in England which provides legal education for students and professionals. The Law Society of England and Wales created the College of Law by merging its own School of Law and the tutorial firm Gibson and Weldon in 1962. In 2006, the College became the first independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers by the Privy Council, leading to development of its Bachelor and Master of Law degree programmes. The London Moorgate centre was also opened – currently the UK’s largest corporate-specific law school. In March 2010, the College announced that they would become the first legal education provider in the UK to offer direct access to the New York Bar for non-law graduates.
