Right quote

Studying at Cardiff University has given me a platform to develop skills to last a lifetime. The School has allowed me to grow to my full potential, through an array of workshops, networking events and lecture support. My lecturers have given up their time willingly and generously to help me with my many questions, which has been invaluable to my studies. The modules available are diverse – it’s easy to find a topic you are passionate about. I cannot recommend the School of Law and Politics enough.

Cardiff mooters take final to Supreme Court

16 May 2022

Not many students have the opportunity to showcase their skills in a real court of law but this May, third year law students Ken Chiu, Law Jing Yu, Lim Jia Yun Ruth and Amelia Jefford did just that, in a mooting competition at the UK Supreme Court.

REF assesses the quality of research in UK higher education institutions. The impact of our research and environment in which we work at Cardiff University were integral to our REF 2021 submission.
