Leading legal city

Preston is the second largest city in the UK for conducting trials, second only to London. Preston has seen some of the highest profile criminal cases including the trial of the killers of James Bulger, and the trial of one of the most prolific serial killers of all time, Harold Shipman, and, more recently the trial of Dale Cregan. Students will visit the courts in Preston as part of their studies.

At Lancashire Law School students can enjoy a rewarding experience through engagement in a wide range of voluntary opportunities. These include our pro bono clinic law clinic which is operated in conjunction with the Citizens Advice bureau and supported by local professionals, the Personal Support Unit based at the Court Centre in Preston and gives students the opportunity to support clients through the court process, and the ground breaking mediation clinic.
