"I chose the University of Lincoln because when I visited the campus at Open Day, I knew that Lincoln would become my home. When I was greeted by a Student Ambassador, I felt like I was being greeted by a family member."Emily Taylor, LLB Law graduate
Lincoln Law School is based in Bridge House on the Brayford Pool Campus. Students can access a range of dedicated facilities on campus, including breakout and seminar rooms and a moot court to practise their mooting skills.
Curiosity, energy, interest and enthusiasm for the subject of law, and commitment to successful completion of the three year course. The study of law at A Level is not essential.
No specific skills are required but an interest and curiosity about the subject of law is important.
The course is contemporary and practical in the sense it does require a great deal of participation in seminars and problem-based learning.
Excellent communication skills will be vital for the successful student.
The School has extensive links with the local legal profession through a professional mentoring scheme and other initiatives. Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry independently. Placements can range from a few weeks to a full year. Costs associated with placements are at the student’s own expense.
"Lincoln has everything you could ever need all within walking distance, making it all that bit easier to balance work and play.”Callum Humphrey, LLB Law student
Lincoln Law School is an internationally inclusive community of students and staff. Each year we offer the opportunity to study abroad for an academic year to students between Level 2 and 3, extending the degree programme from three to four years. There may be opportunities either through the Erasmus scheme with one of our European partners, or the Law School has a growing number of international partners, including law schools in South Africa and Japan.
This course is suitable for students that have a definite interest in studying law and are fully committed towards devoting three years towards the attainment of this degree.
It may provide students with opportunities to further develop their legal career and go on to become a solicitor or barrister, or in other areas depending on their choice of career path. An important focus of the course is to enable the personal development of each individual student.
The aim of this course is to produce independent, enquiring, and knowledgeable graduates. Students are encouraged to develop practical legal skills by entering competitions in mooting and negotiation. These skills are practised extensively in seminars and through the student-run Law Society. In addition, there is a University pro bono law clinic, where students can give legal advice to real people in real situations, under supervision.
The best way to find out what it is really like to live and learn at Lincoln is to join us for one of our Open Days. Visiting us in person is important and will help you to get a real feel for what it might be like to study here.Book Your Place

At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
