updated on 24 May 2017

The University of Law and the University of Reading have formed a new partnership to provide postgraduate legal training courses.

From September, the University of Law will offer the Legal Practice Course to students at the University of Reading’s London Road campus. Following this, the University of Law will also provide the Graduate Diploma in Law for non-law graduates at Reading.

Professor Susan Breau, head of the school of law at the University of Reading, said: “Our undergraduate degree and postgraduate master’s courses are designed to introduce students to the academic discipline of law and to prepare students to work in the legal profession. With law graduates in high demand, we look forward to the opportunities that collaboration with The University of Law will bring, and to continuing to develop a strong professional and academic law offer here at the University of Reading.”

Professor Andrea Nollent, The University of Law’s vice chancellor and chief executive, said: “We are delighted to announce this collaboration with the University of Reading, which is testament to The University of Law’s continued commitment towards delivering increased access to legal education for aspiring law professionals. Combining The University of Law’s standing as the top-ranked institution for student satisfaction in the United Kingdom with the University of Reading’s world-class reputation, we believe our collective strength will equip students looking to enter the legal profession with the very best skills needed to succeed in a competitive market.”
