 School of Law and internationalisation

The international approach at Bradford 

At the School of Law, true internationalism and diversity are at the core of our ambition. We know how important it is to prepare our students for responsible leadership in a globalised market. We have developed a number of ways that we integrate international exposure into the curriculum. You can participate in short-term university/institutional, study placements, work placements and internships abroad or even study with us on our Distance Learning LLM, from anywhere in the world. This gives our students the experience to study law in a variety of international settings.

As well as international reach, we also represent more than 30 nationalities in our University campus. Over 60% of our students and over 50% of Faculty members come from outside the UK. We are part of a student body and Faculty, which represent the international diversity visible in the global business world.

Student Testimonials

Muyiwa Abiodun Iretiola (LL.B) (visited Bennett University)

My experience was wonderful and fantastic. We learnt new things about the culture and the legal system of India and has the opportunity to visit wonderful places, taste different foods and the way we were welcomed into the institution. In facts, my kudos and appreciation to the University of Bradford.

Melody Amadi (LLM) (visited Bennett University)

During my four weeks at Bennett University, I had the opportunity to immerse myself in the vibrant Indian culture, which further deepened my appreciation for global connections and the transformative power of education. As we delved into legal topics, I realized the importance of cultural perspectives in shaping legal principles, broadening my understanding of the global legal landscape.

Aamir Shafiq Chodhary (LLM) (visited Pforzheim University)

My experience at Pforzheim University extended beyond the classroom walls. One particular visit that stands out in my memory is the European Consumer Centre at Kehl. Exploring the intricacies of data privacy policies of various companies, like Porsche and meeting with Ms. Sheila Vasquez, the Data Protection Officer at Volkswagen.

Karlisa Rees    (LL.B) (visited Pforzheim University)

Overall, studying abroad was a pleasant and eye-opening experience. They provided us with a lot of activities in the meantime such as being able to travel to a talk on international affairs under the UN and what goes on in the ICC. These have offered good job opportunities for us who are considering studying internationally or aiming to find work with legal parameters.  

Sara Khan (LLM) (visited Pforzheim University)

My oversea placement in Germany was amazing and all the students including myself really enjoyed the trip. Everyone at Pforzeim university such as the professors, co-ordinators and students were very accommodating and helpful. The professors planned and organised an ideal itenary for us, from guest lectures to workshops, to fun outdoor visits such as - Hiedelberg, Stuttgart history, watching a live German criminal trial etc.

Hiba Omer (LLM) (visited UiTM Malaysia)

It was really interesting to explore topics like constitutional law, human right and environmental law. This experience helped me understand how the legal system works in Malaysia. Outside of the lectures, I had an amazing time engaging in various fun activities and the best part of this experience were the  Malaysian people.

Elizabeth Barnes (LLM, DL) (visited UiTM Malaysia)

I found the experience challenging, but also enjoyed exploring a new environment and interacting with people from a different Country I had never visited. Studying abroad serves to expand the experiences and has provided a global and broader mindset, I may not otherwise have had.
