Active research interests of staff ensure specifically tailored and distinctive modules, and delivery sometimes takes place with visiting speakers invited to give seminars on the programme. The International Human Rights Law programme is offered at the University of Liverpool.
We combine over a hundred years’ teaching experience with modern approaches to learning. Alumni include judges of the House of Lords, Court of Appeal, High Court and County Court, members of Parliament and legal practitioners, as well as accountants, social workers and bankers, who continue to make an important contribution to the learning experience and career prospects of our students.
The School of Law includes amongst its alumni Judges of the Court of Appeal, the High Court and the County Courts, as well as distinguished figures in branches of the legal profession. Legal study provides a mark of excellence in any qualification profile.
Apart from judicial appointment or working within the legal profession, past graduates have gone on to undertake Government service, to work within International Humanitarian Organisations, the UN, institutions of the European Union, to pursue careers in commerce, management, banking, marketing, public relations and a whole host of other challenging and rewarding career opportunities.
