College of Arts and Law alumni publications

The College of Arts and Law produces two publications for our Alumni; Holdsworth and Our Africa. These annual newsletters aim to keep our alumni up-to-date with what’s happening on campus, our alumni activities and much more.

Our Africa

Our Africa newsletter front cover

The latest publication from the Centre of West African Studies was the spring 2013 newsletter ‘Our Africa’. This celebrated 50 years of African Studies at the University of Birmingham. In this newsletter you can read about the many ways in which the centre is committed to its research fields as it celebrates our past alumni success and reaches toward the future.

Holdsworth is the annual alumni newsletter from the Birmingham Law School and has been enjoyed by our alumni since 2007. In the latest issue of Holdsworth, we explored the activities of the Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research (CEPLER). The Law School is going from strength to strength thanks to support from academics, those in the school office and alumni – read all about it!

If you or any other previous alumni would like to receive ‘Our Africa’ or ‘Holdsworth’ please update your details at
