The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law is part of Swansea University and located in Swansea, Wales.

It confers LLB degrees, postgraduate courses, and professional conversion and training courses including the Graduate Diploma in Law, Legal Practice Course, and Master of Laws degrees.

Background[edit]

Swansea University was founded in 1920 as the fourth college of the University of Wales.

Established in 1994 as the College of Law and Criminology, the School is the largest Law School in Wales and ranks third in the UK for Criminology, and twenty-second in the UK for Law.(The Times Good University Guide 2019).[1]

Academically, Cardiff Law School offers LLB degrees, postgraduate courses, and professional conversion and training courses including the Graduate Diploma in Law, Legal Practice Course, and Master of Laws degrees.

Research[edit]

In the Research Excellence Framework 2014, 96% of School research was recognised as demonstrating an international standard.[2] This research encompasses the School's numerous research centres including The Swansea University Legal Centre, Centre for Criminal Justice and Criminology, Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Law, Cyber Threats Intelligence Centre, The Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law and the Wales Observatory on Human Rights of Children and Young People.[3]

Location[edit]

The School is based at the University's Singleton Park campus, in the Richard Price building. The School intends to move to purpose-built premises on the University's Bay Campus within the next few years. This new development will house commercial law firms, technology companies, national and international agencies, along with the academics and students of the School.

Naming[edit]
