School of Law
The School offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Law, Criminology, Sociology, Politics, Development, Environmental Governance and International Relations. We have a thriving cohort of doctoral students, including a significant number who work on issues connected with human rights law, international criminal law, criminology, migration and social policy.
The teaching, research and advocacy strengths of the school are reflected in our Criminology and Sociology and Law departments, alongside The Social Policy Research Centre, European Human Rights Advocacy Centre, and Doctoral Institute. These provide an optimal basis for high-quality applied teaching, research and public engagement.
Over 1,700 students, including doctoral students, study within the School. The intellectual environment within the School and our overseas links facilitate contributions to issues of social justice in many parts of the world.
With our London location close to the centre of policy and practice in key national, European and international issues, the diversity and excellence of our academic staff, and investment in enhancing academic leadership, the School is building on its existing strong reputation as an internationally competitive, broad based law school.
Professor Joshua Castellino is Dean of the School of Law.
