UNIQ students

UNIQ Summer School

Students attend lectures and talks at the faculty over a period of four days, with a typical day usually being 9am-4.30pm. This year students participated in a mock court hearing, tried their hand at commercial negotiation and took part in a tutorial with one of our graduate students. They also had lectures on topics such as criminal law and Brexit. There is also much more do to outside the faculty, with sessions on interviews, personal statements and student finance available.

In 2021, the UNIQ Law Summer School will take place on:

  • Monday 5th - Thursday 8th July.
