Welcome to the Department of Law

With a proud tradition in critical legal education and an internationally recognised body of research, the Department of Law, part of the School of Law, is a stimulating and dynamic environment for students and academics.

The Law LLB degree at Birkbeck offers students a challenging and rewarding undergraduate experience. Our staff are passionate about research-led teaching and are committed to providing students the encouragement and support they need to realise their potential.

In 2016, 93% of students told the National Student Survey that they find the law degree intellectually stimulating.

We offer a broad range of postgraduate degree specialisms including Human Rights and International Economic Law, as well as our postgraduate Qualifying Law Degree and flagship intensive LLM programmes.

The combination of Birkbeck's unique evening study model and other forms of flexible learning leaves students free to gain practical legal experience . That’s why 80% of graduates are in graduate-level work.
