Deptford Town Hall's Council Chamber and boardroom

The Grade II listed ex-Deptford Town Hall building built in 1905, is home to the Law department.

We have unique access to the imposing Council Chamber and boardroom, where we stage mock trials, debating competitions, immersive jury trials, simulated contract negotiations, and research seminars. You will exercise crucial legal skills in an environment resembling the atmosphere in law courts and commercial board rooms in the country.

It is also home to our common room and offices, where personal tutorial meetings and student activities take place.

Virtual reality and multiscreen

We use VR handsets to immerse you in experiences that allow you to see Law in its cultural context. In our Criminal Law module, we use it for a documentary that shares the stories of five survivors of sexual assault and their healing journey.

We have a state of the art collaborative workspace that allows both students and session leaders to share content on individual screens and groups on each table – or for the whole group present in the room.

Law Library

Our Law Library has all the key legal databases - including Westlaw, Lexis Library, Hein Online - and the key practitioner resource, Practical Law. Through Practical Law international, Westlaw International and Nexis, our students can access materials from many jurisdictions around the world.

We also have subscriptions to Cambridge University Press Law eBooks (around 3,000), Oxford University Press Law eBooks (around 2,000), Hart eBooks, Lexis Library eBooks and Westlaw eBooks on top of the paper collection. This means all the core textbooks are available both in paper and in digital format.

The Law Library is supported by a very experienced law librarian, who has worked both in major City law firms and the primary academic law library in London, the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies.
