Welcome to York Law School

As the Head of the School I am looking forward to meeting you at YLS. I realise that starting University may be a stressful time, and this is particularly true this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we hope to make the transition to studying at University as smooth, fun and interesting as we can.

To make sure it is, please follow the advice below. Please also see the video below where Jed Meers, our 1st Year Tutor, explains what to expect in Autumn 2020, and the Undergraduate LLB Programmes 2020 Plans (PDF , 153kb) document, which sets out our current plans for your learning next term. We hope very much you will enjoy your time at YLS, and we look forward to meeting you.
