We’re an ambitious and dynamic Law School with a teaching heritage stretching back 100 years 

We offer a challenging and extremely rewarding education in law at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels with unrivalled opportunities to study abroad as well as a host of extra-curricular activities.  

Over the years we have grown an impressive network of professional contacts locally, nationally and internationally who attend our annual Law Careers Fair and our extensive alumni network offer their time to facilitate mock interviews, mentoring and work placements to Exeter law students. We have an outstanding reputation internationally for our research, with exciting prospects in human rights, international law, legal history and European law.
