As a growing firm, we recognise how vital it is for firms such as ours to provide support and open doors for the next generation of lawyers. We welcome this chance to do so for the students of St Mary’s, both via the family law prize and through other opportunities the partnership will create.”

The St Mary’s Law degree focuses on practical (as well as theoretical) teaching which means you can develop the analytical and critical skills essential for formulating legal arguments. You'll also have the opportunity to study a range of specialist subjects that are relevant to your own aspirations. Students will be taught by leading academics in the field, and former solicitors and barristers, in an open and friendly environment, with emphasis given to supporting students as individuals. We work hard to help you to develop your employability skills and this degree programme will allow you to experience: an employment tribunal; Supreme and County courts; Bank of England; and Lloyds of London, to name just a few.
