Study in a diverse and inclusive academic environment
We are immensely proud of our diverse student community and inclusive learning environment, welcoming students from a wide range of backgrounds and from all over the world. Learn about Law with a social justice ethos. Social justice is at the core of our ethos. We teach Law as a socially-relevant subject, rather than simply as an abstract academic discipline, and believe that this gives our students a fuller appreciation of the law’s capacity to deliver justice, redress grievances, and achieve meaningful social change.
