The University of South Wales has been rated the 13th best Law School in the UK in the Guardian League Tables.
USW’s Law School has been rated 13th in the annual Guardian League Tables, thanks to its quality of teaching, student support and the employment opportunities it offers its students. In addition, USW’s Law School has been rated top in Wales for teaching quality and student experience in Law in The Times Good University Guide 2021.
Academic Subject Manager in Law Holly Evans says, “We are proud that USW’s Law School has risen further up the league tables and is now the 13th best Law School in the UK, ahead of other Law Schools such as Cardiff and Bristol, which is testament to a law team that is passionate about the experience and success of all our students.
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 through 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, which is integrated into our courses 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 practising 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 and their employability skills which will be invaluable to them as graduates.”
