School of law
At the School of Law we are focused on developing students for their professional futures. We do this by giving our students:
- Courses developed with Business and Law experts, to ensure the skills our graduates offer employers are the skills they want;
- Academics with established profession contacts, giving access to work placements and future employment
- Small class-sizes that ensure students are not lost in a crowd. We had the second highest student to staff ratio in the North West (Telegraph 2011)
The Legal Research Centre houses the current eclectic collection of research interests within the Law School and its research students. Our mission is to ensure that all teaching is underpinned with research bases. It is also the umbrella organisation which governs the Centre for Dispute Resolution. The Centre for Dispute Resolution provides an interface for conferences, publications and ADR training.
