The Legal Cheek View
ULaw Bristol is situated in the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, which is the commercial heartland of the city. The campus is flanked by law firms and is in close proximity to the likes of Burges Salmon, Osborne Clarke, RPC, Bond Dickinson and Simmons & Simmons.
There is also a Starbucks nearby. Which is fortunate, because if you are a student who needs regular coffee breaks to pass the GDL in one piece, you may need to refuel elsewhere, as the campus coffee is apparently “terrible”.
However, the GDL itself seems to do its job: “Overall it got me a training contract so I’m happy,” one recent graduate tells us.
ULaw’s close connections with the profession is a major selling point. The careers service at the Bristol campus is highly rated. A Bristol GDLer explains: “They organised a lot of good events and talks. The ULaw Jobs Fair eventually led to me securing a training contract so I can’t complain”.
