The Law School at LJMU is one of the largest law schools in the country and has a long tradition of marrying academic excellence and practical legal study. The School has a large suite of LLB, LLM and LPC programmes. The LLB has been adapted to include modules which align with the new route to qualification under the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination.
The School is particularly proud of the contribution that its award-winning Legal Advice Centre has made to both the University and the regional community (www.ljmu.ac.uk/microsites/legal-advice-centre). The work of the Legal Advice Centre has now been embedded into the undergraduate curriculum to provide valuable experience and skills development for our undergraduate and postgraduate students.
In the NSS 2020 the Law School had the highest rate of student satisfaction of any large Law School in the North West of England. Our developments have resulted in an increase in student recruitment including exceeding targets by 38% in 2020 and a further 18% increase on target in 2021. This continued success has facilitated a substantial number of new staff being recruited since 2020. This includes 13 lecturers or senior lecturers, one reader and two professors.
