Our fantastic law library is open 24/7 and has the latest editions of books, law reports, journals and all major legal databases at your fingertips.

Computer Facilities

There is a wealth of computer facilities available to all of our students and our online resources can be accessed 24/7 to provide the most relevant and up-to-date law resources, enabling you to excel in your studies.

You can also link your own computer into the University network using either wireless or wired connections and all the on-campus student accommodation features a broadband connection.

Mock courtrooms

Our mock courtrooms really help to bring your learning to life and apply the skills that have been developed during your studies to a practical setting. It’s also equipped with the latest recording equipment to record the advocacy sessions for later analysis.

Simulations in Transactional Activities (SIMITA)

SIMITA is an online interactive learning environment which gives students the opportunity to acquire and practise case working skills, with the help of technology that behaves and feels exactly like that of a modern professional office.

This ‘virtual law office’ also stores tutor and peer feedback on skills development. There are links to academic, legal and student-produced resources and offers tutors the advantage of being able to monitor how groups are working much more easily than with paper-based transactions.
