Features: Laying the Foundations: Edinburgh Law School officially launches its Old College Campaign | Stellar REF results | Learning in the Community: Free Legal Advice Centre

The first half of 2015 has been an exciting time for the Law School as we prepare for the refurbishment of our Old College home. Staff members have been busy clearing out of offices so the north-west section of the building can be stripped out and prepared for the construction work that will begin in November. It’s all beginning to feel very real and we’re delighted that we’ll be able to see the results in 2018, two years sooner than first scheduled. You can read more about that on page 4. We’re also feeling very proud in 2015. Our Research Excellence Framework (REF) results, revealed at the end of last year, demonstrated just how much the research we do at the Law School makes a difference, and you can find out more about that opposite. We have also risen in the rankings. We’re now rated as one of the top 30 law schools in the world by the 2015 QS World University Rankings by Subject, and we acknowledge and thank the role of our impressive alumni community in enhancing our reputation around the world.
