Join Peter Odell, Senior University Teacher, to find out what the University of Sheffield's Law School can offer you. We're inviting a student ambassador to join the session to share the student perspective too.
Sheffield's School of Law was ranked inside the top-10 for law in the most recent Research Excellence Framework. This means you are taught by staff including some of the world’s leading experts in law and criminal justice. Our qualifying law degrees (LLB and MA in Law) are recognised by the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) as satisfying many core aspects of the common law knowledge required to practise in Canada.
We have excellent work experience opportunities which provide students with the chance to help and advise real clients through in-house and community-based volunteering schemes. They can also work at the local courts, work with victims and witnesses of crime within local charities, or work in our Miscarriages of Justice Review Centre evaluating cases of possible wrongful imprisonment. Many law schools will have one or two pro bono schemes, where students experience what it is like to interact with and advise clients with real world legal problems. At Sheffield, we have eleven pro bono schemes, including four in-house law clinics, providing over 200 pro bono places to our students each year. This means that you will have more hands-on-experience interacting with real clients than at most competitor law schools, which will give you a real advantage when applying for jobs.
The University of Sheffield is a leading research university with a global reputation for excellence. Ranked in the world top 100 universities (QS World University Rankings 2022) and a member of the prestigious Russell Group, Sheffield offers a world-class education in a vibrant and welcoming city in the heart of the UK.
