About Us

The Durham Law School's academic staff are leading figures in the field drawn from across the world that deliver an intellectually stimulating legal education in a diverse and supportive environment.

Teaching is informed by our latest cutting-edge research that does more than explain the law - we help students understand how to shape it. In the first few weeks, students are required to attend small group tutorials and seminars developing first-hand contact from the start of their studies. We inspire our students to succeed wherever their future careers might take them.
