Since its establishment in 1911, the School's educational mission has remained at the heart of our endeavours and today our wide range of high quality programmes encourage the development of both a critical understanding of law and the enhancement of legal and interdisciplinary knowledge and skills. The School works closely with law firms, government departments and NGOs to boost employability and develop professional skills among our students as part of our careers development programme. Our students also benefit from the state-of-the-art Sutherland School of Law building which opened in 2013 while enjoying extensive opportunities to study abroad at some of the leading law schools in Europe, North America and Asia contributing to the development of truly global lawyers.
