Our Law School locations
BPP University Law School is based in city-centre locations across the UK:
Schools in these locations give us excellent links to the legal profession and strong connections with leading firms.
Our buildings are designed to prepare you for a professional legal environment. They combine comfort and innovation and are equipped with state-of-the art facilities, and in most locations mock courtrooms.
From the bright and spacious classrooms to the software we use, we aim to make sure your everyday learning experience is 100% professionally oriented. This means that when you enter professional legal practice, you'll feel completely at home.
Teaching quality at BPP University Law School
Our teaching methods focus on equipping our students with practical skills and relevant knowledge. We combine the academic excellence of a university with the real-life focus of a professional firm, and we offer practice-facing degrees with a strong commercial flavour.
Furthermore, most of our tutors are professionally qualified and experienced. They bring real-life scenarios to the classroom, providing a unique, engaging and interactive classroom experience. Of course, we want you to pass your exams – and most of our students do so with excellent results – but above all want to make sure you're ready to go out and practice.
Throughout your time at BPP University Law School, we'll provide you with expert support and career guidance. We have an outstanding Law School careers service which offers all kinds of information and advice to help you secure a training contract or pupillage, plus a weekly email newsletter.
Support your legal career with access to practice
We also run a very successful Access to Practice scheme for students with limited contacts in the legal profession. If you're accepted onto the scheme, you'll be linked with a professional mentor from a law firm. They provide a vital point of contact and insight into the legal profession, plus advice on applications, CVs and interviews.

Award-winning Pro Bono Centre
BPP's Pro Bono Centre operates a wide variety of pro bono projects around the UK. These projects enable students to put their legal skills and knowledge into practice in a way that benefits members of the community who might not have access to legal services.
The diverse projects include a Legal Advice Clinic, public legal education programmes in prisons, homeless shelters and schools and a Human Rights Unit. Students have opportunities to work alongside law firms and NGOs with their community projects.
All projects allow students to understand the relevance of law in real-world situations and to recognise the value of their skills and knowledge to the vulnerable in society.
BPP's Pro Bono Centre is a crucial component of the BPP University Law School. The Pro Bono Centre's projects have won several awards. Read more about our award-winning Pro Bono Centre
