The School of Law at the University of Reading is Berkshire's leading law school, unrivalled in its teaching and internationally renowned as a centre of excellence in research. The high standing of the School has been confirmed by a succession of recent government and student surveys which have confirmed the School's standing as a provider of teaching and research excellence. Indeed, the School achieved a 5 (out of a maximum 5*) in the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) and was rated in the top 10 law schools in terms of student satisfaction in the 2005 National Student Survey.
The School was founded in 1973, and has grown over the years to an annual intake of 'normally' 175 students, and we are currently home to thirty-nine members of staff. The School is housed in Foxhill House, a grade II* listed building that has been adapted to twenty-first century use, on the Whiteknights campus. On this website, you can access information about our undergraduate and postgraduate offerings, our varied research interests, and get an insight into the operation of the School.
