Northumbria University School of Law (pictured) was one of a strong UK showing in a league table published last week of the ‘50 most impressive law school buildings in the world’. In a table dominated by US law schools, UK institutions featured seven times.

Durham Law School took the number one position, followed by the School of Law, Northumbria University at Newcastle (number two) and the School of Law, University of Leeds at number five.

The only other country to figure more than once in the table, compiled by website, is Australia, with two appearances.
