The University is proud to announce the launch of CEPLER, the Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research. CEPLER will extend and enhance the vocational training opportunities available to Birmingham Law School students, improving their employability and making them distinctive from graduates from other law schools.
In collaboration with the Birmingham-based legal profession, the centre aims to promote professional legal education at both undergraduate and graduate level, and to foster research opportunities with and on the legal profession.
CEPLER is supported by a national set of chambers, leading firms of solicitors and judges who are working to identify opportunities for students, practitioners and academics.
Professor Sonia Harris-Short ""By facilitating relationships between academics and legal practitioners CEPLER will enable Birmingham Law School to become a renowned centre for research with and on the legal profession."
