School intro

About the School

The degree taught is from the University of London and is backed by the integrity of the University of London Law Consortium: London School of Economics (LSE), Kings College, Queen Mary, Birkbeck, SOAS, and UCL. These institutions, according to The Guardian’s 2015 University Guide, take five of the top ten spots, and three of the top five, for law studies in the UK.

The University of London has long been at the forefront of social issues, having been the first institution in the UK to admit women, and has produced Nobel Prize winner, Presidents, a former Vice-President of the International Court of Justice, an ICJ prosecutor, a Prime Minister, and with the most notable law student being the former President Nelson Mandela.

The University of London LLB has been the first step on a career route for many thousands of practicing lawyers within the Commonwealth and around the world. Our own graduates have gone on to have the degree recognized outside of the Commonwealth and accepted within Israel.

AAU’s History with the UOL

Autumn of 2011 saw the introduction of instruction of the University of London International Programmes’ LLB degree; in 2012 AAU was awarded Candidacy status. In June 2013 the University of London International Programmes awarded AAU status as a Registered Centre. The winter of 2014 saw the introduction of study support for the University of London LLM students and in June 2014, AAU was awarded Diploma Teaching Status (the title was subsequently changed from Diploma to Certificate of Higher Education). Most recently, in March of 2015, AAU was awarded a commendation for excellence in teaching by the University of London for results that surpass the global average.

With classes the size of the tutorials you’d experience in the more notable British institutions, a dedicated faculty who will know you by name, and tuition a fraction of the cost of the UK, AAU offers an intimate and rigorous, yet affordable, educational experience.

In accordance with UOL’s new framework, AAU is a Recognised Teaching Centre, formerly known as a Registered Centre. Anglo-American University was granted Recognised Centre status within the University of London’s Teaching Institution Recognition Framework. The progression to Recognised Centre status is a formal recognition of the integrity of the institution and the quality of instruction offered at AAU. With Recognised Centre status AAU is now able to verify documents for those students interested in applying to either of the University of London laws programs.

Since 2009, Anglo-American University has run a legal journal AA Law Forum. More information including the list of issues can be found here.
