UEA Law School is a vibrant community of expert academics and ambitious students with strong and meaningful links to the wider community, supported by our highly successful alumni.
The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Law.
If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.
Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys).
Welcome to the UEA Law School
In joining us you have become a member of a top law school, at a leading university. The professors and lecturers at the UEA Law School are leading experts in their field, with backgrounds of either high level scholarship or legal practice. The Law School prides itself in the quality of its teaching and the overall student experience it offers.
Our staff are approachable and friendly – we would not want it any other way. We take great care to provide pastoral care, to help our students overcome challenges that may occur within and beyond their studies. Every student has an academic advisor, whom they can talk things over with confidentially and who can help draw on the university’s extensive systems of support.
We will help you achieve your full potential. The Law School is highly committed to helping our students achieve their full potential in terms of employability. We will help you develop and apply key skills that will be of great value, regardless of whether you decide to pursue a career in the legal profession or in any one of the diverse set of career paths our past graduates have successfully chosen.
Earlham Hall is a key part of the Law School’s identity. It is the Law School’s home and is a building of great historical importance. After completing the conversion of Earlham Hall’s old stable building, work is now underway on an extension, providing a customised space for the School’s pro bono Law Clinic, as well as new offices for the School’s future growth.
The UEA Law School is a strong family. The fact we are a medium-sized law school, enables us to maintain a sense of community and a vibrant ethos, with an extensive range of activities and legal competitions organised by our outstanding student Law Society. I would encourage you to participate in these sorts of activity and make the most of your time here.
I wish you every success and a happy time here at UEA Law School. I very much look forward to meeting you.
Professor Andreas Stephan
Head of the UEA Law School
The Graduate Diploma in Legal Studies is an intensive one year course designed to allow non-law graduates to 'convert' to a law path. Following successful completion of the Diploma, you will be eligible to progress to either the Legal Practice Course for solicitors or the Bar Professional Training Course for those wishing to qualify at the bar.
