This UK law school's teaching has been rated higher than 90% by students

3rd May 2018 Posted by: Duncan Chisholm - Editor

THE law school at Swansea University receives high ratings among students and it's also been attracting international attention recently. 

Swansea University law students rated the teaching at their law school at 92% overall in the National Student Survey 2017.

In the same survey, the vast majority of students following law subjects at the Top 200 law school rated their teachers as being good explainers of their field. 

Many of those students could be part of the 90% of LLB graduates who went on to employment or further study. 

But if they had chosen to extend their academic legal studies, they may well soon be eligible to follow a PhD in research and take up a scholarship which is endorsed by one of the most famous people on earth: Hillary Rodham Clinton, who fought Donald Trump for the US Presidency in 2016.

The scholarship is not only a great opportunity to add a famous name to postgraduates' CVs. 

The focus of the scholarship is to improve the human rights of children globally, as part of a partnership between Swansea University, Hillary Rodham Clinton and the Welsh Government. 

The Hillary Rodham PhD Research Scholarship Programme is a major addition to Swansea University's international credentials, but the university already has an international reach.

Many law students have the option of taking up one of an extensive range of work placement opportunities, in countries as varied as Botswana, California and Dublin.  

In line with preparing students for the world of work after graduation, Swansea University's Hillary Rodham School of Law also offers students the chance to polish their practical skills through experiential learning, so students are able to deepen their experience of actual legal practice through Clinical Legal Education and the Miscarriage of Justice Project

Like other law schools, students have the additional opportunity to enter annual mooting competitions to sharpen their advocacy skills.

Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law graduates also have access to professional legal courses after their initial degrees, such as the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Legal Practice Course. 

Charmaine Yip, a student studying on the SIngle Honours LLB course, outlined how students are also able to take up wider opportunities while they study which are not focused on the law profession: "The support throughout has been really useful, the staff are very friendly and open to help. I am currently the Student Union's International Officer, a Senior Student Ambassador, International Student Ambassador and College Rep – take every opportunity that is available to you and you will be amazed at how much you can achieve!"

Through the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law, students such as Charmaine have been able to widen their horizons to benefit not only their future prospects for their legal career but also to prepare to take alternative paths through their professional lives.
