Shaping the future of legal services
The School of Law is recognised as a leading centre for legal education and applied research and for its innovative approach to responding to the challenges posed by the application of technology in legal services. We have ambitious plans to grow the scale and impact of our work, supported by a planned move in 2020 to a new, purpose-built building housing sector-leading facilities for teaching, research, legal engineering and legal R&D.
The School’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Law leads the LegalTech Wales initiative, an emerging network of legal practitioners, technology companies and other organisations interested in the application and impact of technology in legal practice. The Centre also works closely with the Department of Computer Science on the LegalTech agenda and has recently made a joint appointment of an Associate Professor in Law and Computer Science who specialises in the application of machine learning in the legal domain.
