As the Acting Head of Lincoln Law School, it is my pleasure to provide a welcome to our website.
Law has a long and illustrious heritage in Lincoln, from the city’s possession of one of only four original copies of the Magna Carta, to the work of its law courts today.
Our philosophy is that students work best when they are happy and relaxed so we foster an informal learning environment which builds your confidence in a friendly atmosphere. Building on the University's "Student as Producer" initiative, where students themselves are integrally involved in their own education, the Law School recognises the importance of both traditional and more innovative study techniques, including opportunities outside the classroom to experience the law.
Lincoln Law School will help you develop a detailed understanding of the rules and institutions that govern our society, a society that is increasingly global in nature, as well as the ability to place the law within its social and political context.
May I wish you every success and hope to see you in our wonderful city soon.
Mr Martyn Heathcote - Acting Head of the Lincoln Law School

Lincoln Law student Alice Flett has been awarded the Neuberger Prize by the prestigious Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn. Now in its third year, the Neuberger Prize aims to award students from non-Russell Group universities who are of proven excellence, giving them the opportunity to gain membership to the Inn during their final year of study as well as being awarded a grant of £1000 to further support their studies. Lincoln’s Inn is thought to be one of the longest established of the four London Inns of Court and provides membership to barristers and lawyers as well as support to students for Call to the Bar by offering the chance to attend events at the Inn and meet practicing barristers.
Alice, who is in the third year of her LLB (Hons) Law Degree will officially accept the prize at an awards dinner at Lincoln’s Inn on Monday 30th October. Alice hopes that her success will inspire fellow law students to embrace the opportunities that these of prizes can offer.
Simon McCaffrey, Undergraduate Admissions Tutor at the Lincoln Law School said: “Alice is a model student who has truly embraced the opportunities afforded to her during her studies at the University of Lincoln both within the curriculum and through her extra-curricular efforts.
“I am delighted that Alice has been successful for her Neuberger Prize application and look forward to seeing her progress in what I’m sure will be a very successful law career”.
Alice, an active member of the University’s Law Society, recently completed a fundraising challenge in which she ran up and down Lincoln's famous Steep Hill dressed as a swan to raise money for AMICUS - an American charity that opposes the death penalty and helps to provide representation for those on death row.
