The Cardiff Law School (Welsh: Ysgol y Gyfraith, Caerdydd) is the law department of Cardiff University in Cardiff, Wales. It provides an LLB degree,[1] in addition to postgraduate courses like the LLM[2] and research degrees.[3] The School also provides professional legal education, in terms of the Legal Practice Course[4] for would-be solicitors and the Bar Vocational Course[5] for those studying for the Bar.

The School is located in Cardiff’s civic centre. Until the late 1950s the area to the North of Main Building remained undeveloped. In 1963 the Law Building (then known as the Arts Building) opened,[6] joining Museum Avenue and Park Place. Its distinctive bull-nose front is still an easily recognisable feature.
