The presence of the legal profession is strong at Sheffield. Former students, now at the height of their professional careers as judges, barristers, CEOs and Senior Partners, visit us regularly to advise on our curriculum, meet and advise our students and deliver guest lectures. We also have practising solicitors on our teaching team and staff who have come from commercial backgrounds.

We are delighted to work closely with major international law firms on a number of sponsorship initiatives. These include provision of funds and facilities for the School such as our Slaughter and May Moot Court, student mentoring schemes, sponsorship of courses or modules and cash prizes and scholarships for individual student excellence.

The School of Law would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors.
