Graduate Employability

The School of Law takes a proactive approach to enhancing graduate employability.  A range of activities and skills pervade the teaching and pastoral care right from enrolment through to graduation.  Our career enhancement opportunities include guest lectures, networking events, internships and student-led projects.  Highlights from the past 12 months include talks from the Judiciary, Lawyers from both local and national firms, and Commercial Directors & IP brand managers from multinational companies; and a range of internships in legal and commercial departments of businesses and public bodies across the world.

Following a pilot ‘bootcamp’ of intensive workshops in the summer of 2012, which was supported by recruiters to help fine tune our students’ job application and interview skills, the School provides interactive CV clinics and interview workshops for all undergraduate and postgraduate students.  Working with the School’s Student Societies, law students have the opportunity to attend networking events and dinners with the legal profession and business world – meeting those who practice the law and those who recruit lawyers.   These activities are supported by the Swansea Employability Academy and run with the assistance of the University’s Careers & Employability Service (which offers students the opportunity to gain the Swansea Employability Award).

Facilities

The Law Library:

If you become a law student at Swansea it is likely that you will spend a substantial amount of your study time in the Law Library. The Law Library is located on the East Wing of the University’s Library and Information Centre (LIC). It contains over 22,000 volumes of legal information and
holds nearly 200 series of law journals and law reports in paper copy.

Research

Research at the School of Law

Research is central to intellectual life at the School of Law. The School is a vibrant academic community of law teachers, legal scholars, social scientists, and legal philosophers. Research at the School of Law is widely recognised as attaining levels of global standing and international excellence. In the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008, the School of Law achieved the most dramatic improvement in research quality of any law school in the UK. 45% of our research was assessed to be world leading or to meet the criteria for international excellence and 95% was recognised to have achieved the international standard. This breadth of international level research activity was attained by only 11 of the 67 Law Schools in the RAE 2008. The School of Law promotes the research agendas through its University Research Centres. The resulting vibrant research environment is evidenced in publication in academic journals, in books published by academic presses, in international conferences, research seminar series, well as in the diffusion, transfer and impact of research conducted.

Student Quotes
