London Metropolitan University is a striving and ambitious institution committed to transforming the lives of its students through excellent education.
We are committed to making education available to people from all walks of life, creating and advancing social justice, social mobility and access to opportunity and professions. Our graduates benefit personally, but also contribute to society, culture, public service and the economy in all areas of London, the UK and around the world.
The School of Law sits within the wider Guildhall School of Business and Law (GSBL). It has an excellent reputation for social inclusion and our strategies are informed by our diversity: our focus is to invest in our students’ aspirations to succeed in a highly competitive sector. We challenge and encourage all our law students to employ their skills of legal drafting, analysis and advocacy in a range of employment-related activities. For example, we run our own extra-curricular mooting competition, the final of which is judged by a Justice of the Supreme Court, and regularly enter students into national and international mooting and mediation competitions.
