Welcome to the Liverpool Law School

taught by experts, our research-led programmes inspire and challenge students to reach their potential

Established in 1892

Liverpool Law School is one of the oldest law departments in the UK. We are committed to contributing, through the excellence of our research and policy work, to critical exploration of the role of law in promoting, or inhibiting, social justice. We strive for social relevance and to influence public debate and policy at the local, national, European and international levels.

Inspiring tomorrow's legal professionals

It's because our research informs our teaching that we provide a rigorous intellectual and practical introduction to the professional workplace, as a basis for pursuing legal, academic or other fulfilling careers.
