University of South Wales have been rated in the Top 50 Law Schools in the UK in the Guardian League Tables.
USW’s Law School has been rated 48th in the annual Guardian League Tables, thanks to its quality of teaching, student support and the employment opportunities it offers its students.
Academic Subject Manager of Law Sara Hale says, “We’re thrilled to be rated in the Top 50 Law schools, ahead of other Law Schools such as Cardiff, Reading and Edge Hill.
At the University of South Wales, we pride ourselves on the support we give to our students. Our students are our partners and are part of the USW family – our staff know each and every student and work hard to support them though each step of their studies to support them not only academically, but personally as well.
As well our having established links with local and national law firms, and other organisations where students can undertake work placements, USW students are also able to engage with our in-house Legal Advice Clinic, either as part of their degree or on a voluntary basis. Our Legal Advice Clinic provides students with the opportunity to gain practical, hands on experience dealing with real life clients, with real legal issues, whilst being supervised by our experienced staff who are practicing solicitors.
These opportunities are open to all students – not just those that achieve the highest grades, which other institutions tend to offer. We firmly believe that every student should be given the opportunity to gain invaluable, hands-on experiences with clients – to build both their confidence their employability skills which will be invaluable to them as graduates.”
