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.
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.
You have joined the law school that makes a difference. Alongside your studies you will have the opportunity to get involved in a range of volunteering opportunities that will allow you to make a contribution to the local community and help transform the lives of vulnerable people. Many of these initiatives were created by our students, so start thinking about how you can make a difference.
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, with links to both early penal reform and the anti-slavery movement. As well as new state of the art teaching rooms in the old Stable Block, we now also have an extension that provides 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
