The School of Law seeks to achieve excellence in teaching, research and professional development. The School provides a range of LLB courses, all of which are Qualifying The School Law Degrees (QLDs) for the purposes of the legal professions, as well as a range of postgraduate courses. Students at Ulster have the opportunity to draw upon the expertise of an internationally recognised group of researchers. Law at Ulster was ranked 4th in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), with 82% of publications ranked as world-leading or internationally excellent. The REF 2014 results also showcase the real-world impact of legal research at Ulster. In the new 'Research Impact' category, 100% of our work was scored as world-leading. The Campus The Jordanstown campus is situated seven miles north of Belfast. The grounds lie at the foot of the South Antrim hills and the land fronting the main entrance slopes down to the shore of Belfast Lough. The campus commands impressive views of the Lough, the Belfast Hills and County Down. Historic Carrickfergus, with its 12th century castle, harbour and modern marina is four miles north of the campus. The proximity of the campus to Belfast is a major attraction for those who choose to live in the city and travel to the campus in private car or via the excellent rail, bus and taxi network. LLB courses are qualifying law degrees for admission into vocational programmes that prepare students for legal practice as solicitors or barristers. The Magee law programme is designed to deliver this primary objective.
