The School of Law maintains close links with the legal community. We keep in contact with our Alumni and hold regular events for both our past students and other members of the legal profession. The School is grateful for the support of Guildford Chambers, whose members support the School's internal mooting competition and provide judges for other mooting activities and careers events.
