ELF University Network: The University of Law

The University of Law

About us

One of the UK’s longest-established specialist providers of legal education, the origins of the University of Law can be traced back to 1876 with the formation of the leading tutorial firm Gibson & Weldon, and later on, with the establishment of The Law Society School of Law. In 1962 the two were amalgamated to establish The College of Law. In 2006, it became the first-ever independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers and, in 2012, was granted university status.

The University of Law, London was amongst the first of the ELF university law clinics and continues to play a leading role in accepting new cases and helping communities across London and well beyond.
