Why Bristol?

Bristol is extremely diverse and this is perhaps what makes the university and indeed the city, great. Engaging with people from such diverse backgrounds and all parts of the world expands my mind and allows me to grow both professionally and personally.

Doing More with Law

Take a look at the Law School Employability Blog and gain insight into the opportunities our students have to start shaping their future careers.

I am from the US and decided to move to Bristol for university because I loved the city, the people, and the academic rigour of the law degree. I originally wanted to live in London, but after visiting Bristol, I realised how safe and welcomed I felt in a city that was large enough to be exciting and entertaining yet small enough to make me feel at home.
