Lincoln Law School



It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Lincoln Law School. Our dynamic School is home to a vibrant academic community that combines high-quality teaching with outstanding research. We are a ‌civically-engaged School with strong links to the legal and criminal justice community around Lincoln and beyond.  

Our philosophy is that students work best when they are happy and relaxed so we foster an informal learning environment that helps to build your confidence in a friendly and welcoming, yet professional, atmosphere. Lincoln Law School assists students to develop a detailed understanding of the rules and institutions that govern our society, as well as the ability to place the law within its social, political and commercial context, both nationally and internationally.

I hope you enjoy reading about what we do and what we offer. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to meeting you at future open days and other events we host.

I enjoy the variety of the course. You are taught the basics of a topic during lectures and then expand your knowledge further during your personal study and seminars. The course is assessed by a variety of means such as written assignments, presentations and exams. This makes it varied and means that there is something which appeals to different types of students.

Lincoln Law Student Awarded Prestigious Neuberger Prize

‌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.‌
