Dear Friends of the Law School,

Welcome to the fourth edition of our Exeter Law School newsletter. As always, the newsletter celebrates the wide variety of excellent work and successes within the School over the last few months.

A particularly exciting recent development we are proud to announce is our ground-breaking collaboration with the University of Law (ULaw). In the first partnership of its kind, graduates will soon be able to take advantage of the beautiful campus and fantastic facilities at Exeter whilst completing the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and Legal Practice Course (LPC) delivered by ULaw. We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity for young legal minds to continue their legal career training with us.

Other highlights include the 38th Annual Lasok Lecture on EU Law; the launch of an undergraduate Law journal, the Exeter Student Law Review; and the successes of the student-run New Intellectual Property Lawyers’ Network, set up as a hub for those with interests in Intellectual Property.

We hope you will enjoy reading this newsletter and please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like further information, or wish to get involved with our events and activities! 

With very best wishes,

Professor James Devenney
Head of Exeter Law School

Lizzie Hustwayte
Change and Development Manager (Law)

University of Law Collaboration

From September 2015, non-law graduates will be able to convert to law after completing a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). In 2016, both GDL and LLB graduates planning a career in law will be able to round off the academic stage of their training with the Legal Practice Course (LPC) for graduates wishing to become solicitors.
