Facilities and expertise in Law


Get to grips with your future career as a law professional with the equipment and facilities at Staffordshire University. Alongside our expert academics you’ll get access to areas like our Mock Courtrooms, Crime Scene house, extensive physical and digital reference and resource materials, and more.

Mock Courtroom

Our digitally enabled mock courtroom provides the opportunity to put theory in to practice in a controlled and simulated environment where you can get feedback on your performance and gain the confidence to speak in a courtroom before working on a real-life case. 

What's more, this facility is sometimes used in conjunction with students from other courses for wider simulation experience days to help students get an understanding of what it's like to have presence of other roles in the courtroom. For example, these might include policing, criminology or forensic teams. 

The lecturers are always supportive and the tutor system is very effective.
