School of Law and Politics

The School of Law and Politics is part of the Faculty of Business, Law and Politics.

Comprising two core subject areas with a long-established history and reputation at Hull, we provide a friendly, supportive learning environment. Our connections to local, national and international legal and political communities informs what we do. And that enables us to develop critical new insights and applied research to influence policy and practice.

For more than 90 years, our law students have been learning how to use the ideas, values and policies that shape the law so that they can make a difference in their careers in and beyond the legal profession.

Politics at Hull has a rich and well-deserved reputation. Our Westminster placement scheme has been running for a quarter of a century. It's the largest in the UK, with unmatched access to the corridors of power.
