Ranked in the top 10 of London Universities, it has a clear sense of mission delivering transformative education that enhances the lives and employment prospects of its students and staff alike.

Today, the colleges provide the friendly, welcoming community that makes Roehampton so distinctive, supporting student wellbeing, social life and the wider student experience.
The Faculty of Business and Law is a vibrant learning community of students and staff who believe that businesses and legal professionals should act with a social conscience and promote excellent citizenship. These values are embedded in our world-class research and the practice-based pedagogy we provide for our students.

We focus on ‘law in practice’ and, through our comprehensive undergraduate and postgraduate portfolio which will evolve to include a focus on commercial law, we provide our students with the opportunity to act like a lawyer from the very start of their time with us.
