About the University of Warwick

We are a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards.

About the Law School

Warwick Law School pioneered the study of law in its social, political and economic context. The School’s research follows many tracks, emphasising historical, international, comparative, theoretical and cross-cultural approaches. Its contextual approach encompasses criminal, commercial, corporate, environmental and human rights law. Interdisciplinary strengths include, law and development, law and gender and law and humanities.

Our research underpins how we teach, leading to distinctive research-led modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Our graduates are sought after for their strengths in both legal doctrine and in thinking about law imaginatively and contextually. The desirability of these skills is reflected in our graduates’ high employment rates.


Our campus is home to students and staff from all over the world. Safe, inclusive and cosmopolitan, it offers everything you could need close at hand, including shops, banks, bars, cafés and restaurants along with sports, health and worship facilities.

We’re located in Coventry, which is the base for many of our students living off campus. It’s a city of contradictions, with modern high street shops, restaurants, nightclubs and bars, within a five minute walk of medieval monuments.

Coventry’s central location means you’re well placed for travel across the UK by rail: it takes just 20 minutes to travel to Birmingham, and an hour to reach London.

Many students also live in nearby Leamington Spa, which is just a bus ride away. It’s smaller than Coventry but still lively with plenty of bars, cafés and shops to explore. And for culture, history and heritage, nearby Kenilworth, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon are well worth a visit.

Student Life

Whether you're into sports, music, dance, or just a coffee with your friends, Warwick has excellent facilities on campus to cater for your interests. We have hundreds of different student societies that you can join and take part in, including societies for your course, not to mention our top class gym, indoor courts, swimming pool and a variety of fitness classes and sports throughout the week. If music is more your style, we have a dedicated music centre with practice rooms available to book, and everything from a full symphony orchestra you can join, to brass bands, jazz bands, musical theatre or Chinese music groups. That's all before we even mention our very own Warwick Arts Centre with its exciting programme every year of theatre, cinema, comedy and workshops. Food and drink play a big part in Warwick life too with coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes all on campus, as well as an international food market held in the piazza every month.
