Established in 1892

Liverpool Law School is one of the oldest law departments in the UK. We are committed to contributing, through the excellence of our research and policy work, to critical exploration of the role of law in promoting, or inhibiting, social justice. We strive for social relevance and to influence public debate and policy at the local, national, European and international levels.

Inspiring tomorrow's legal professionals

It's because our research informs our teaching that we provide a rigorous intellectual and practical introduction to the professional workplace, as a basis for pursuing legal, academic or other fulfilling careers.

April 2 marked the 14th anniversary that the day was designated as World Autism Awareness Day by the United Nations (UN). Aiming to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism, autism friendly and educational events will take place throughout the month of April. We take this opportunity to discuss the prevalence of autism and in particular the research that has been done at Liverpool to highlight in particular the legal challenges children with autism face in the context of accessing their educational and health care rights.
