The College of Law and Criminology has achieved a remarkable success by climbing up 8 places in the Guardian League Tables for 2017.

This result puts Swansea Law School ahead of several Russell Group universities such as Bristol, Exeter, Southampton, Cardiff, Manchester, New Castle and Sheffield  and is a clear indication of the progress that the School is making under the leadership of Professor Elwen Evans QC. 

This success comes at the back of the University receiving "WhatUni2016 Best Courses and Lecturers Award".  

The Shipping and Trade Law Department is devoted to offering research-led and clinical legal education to its students and to this end has recently introduced Employability and Mooting modules available for LLM students studying at Swansea. Also, "International Commercial Arbitration" module offered by the Department is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators as equivalent to member level education (module 2) offered by the CIArb.  This effectively means that starting from the 2015-2016 academic year, LLM students who manage to successfully complete the International Commercial Arbitration module will be eligible to apply for exemption from level 2 education requirements of CIArb membership allowing them to apply to be awarded the level of Member of the Institute or MCIArb
