Edinburgh Law School was established in 1707, and for over 300 years we have trained some of the world's finest legal minds. Now in its fourth century, the School is larger and more diverse than ever.

Situated in the heart of the city, just minutes from both the highest Law Courts in Scotland and Scotland's Parliament, Edinburgh Law School offers a unique place to study in both a world-renowned city and world-leading law school.

The Old College Refurbishment Project is set to transform the Law School’s premises at Old College into a 21st century home for the School, whilst celebrating, and preserving the heritage and history of Old College.
