Since 2004 we have been helping international students study law in the UK and we know that the UK is high on the list of destinations for Canadian law students.
All of our student advisors have all studied in the UK themselves so we know a thing or two about studying across the pond; here’s a great place to start looking for British universities for Canadian law students.
King’s College London
Ranked as one of the top twenty universities in the world, King’s College is recognised globally as one of the UK’s premier law schools.
The College’s Maughan Library provides students with an outstanding research facility and central location, in the heart of London surrounding by the Royal Courts of Justice and the Law Society, provide the perfect spot to begin a career in law.
The University of Nottingham
The University of Nottingham is consistently ranked amongst the best UK law schools and is a world-ranked centre for legal research and teaching.
Situation in the heart of the beautiful 330-acre University Park Campus, the University of Nottingham law school has an overall student satisfaction rating of 90% in the 2014 National Student Survey.
University of York
Commonly regarded as one of the UK’s best cities for English history, iconic architecture and vibrant culture, York is a great place to live, work or study. Period.
The results from the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) rank the York Law School 5th place for research excellence with 90% of their research outputs judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent. High praise indeed!
University of Leeds
The University of Leeds has been teaching law for 115 years so it is fair to say they know one or two things about how to produce outstanding law professionals.
With fifty dedicated academic staff and fifteen support staff, the School of Law at Leeds is well resourced to provide every student the experience and education they require. Leeds is also a fantastic city for a great night out so you’ll never be short of things to do in your down time either!
University of Kent
Academically, the University is outstanding. The law school attracts students from around the world, providing a vibrant atmosphere and global perspectives in seminars and tutorials. Kent’s award-winning electronic law library provides access to the same research and documents as industry professionals so you can start using real industry tools ahead of your first job.
Kent has ranked in the top 20 universities in the UK by The Guardian in 2014 and 2015, whilst also achieving top 10 status in the student satisfaction survey NSS recently.
