Masters’ programmes include International Economic Law, International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation, International Development Law and Human Rights, International Commercial Law, and Advanced Legal Studies.

Our quality teaching has been recognised with two National Teaching Fellowships and Warwick Awards for Teaching Excellence. We are committed to innovative and high-quality teaching within a broad and contextual curriculum. We are currently planning a new undergraduate curriculum, to take our critical and contextual approach to the next level.

Research

As set out on our website, the School hosts four Research Centres, several research clusters, and is part of two cross-disciplinary Centres. Our body of research students and post-doctoral researchers, working across all these areas, is thriving.

Research conducted within the Law School is often world-leading. The School was ranked 10th overall in the UK REF 2014, 6th for research environment, and 7th for the quality of published research. Reflective of our ‘law in context’ ethos, we are committed to maximizing research impact through public engagement and activities designed to generate social and legal change.

Warwick Law School is committed to recruiting and supporting staff with protected characteristics, as defined by defined by the Equality Act 2010. We are already highly diverse and seek to strengthen this. We are actively embedding EDI into all our activities to strengthen our inclusive and welcoming community.

Warwick Law School values widening participation: 15-20% of our undergraduates arrive with contextual offers, and we are proud to be the leading department at Warwick in this area.
