50th Banner strip


Fiona Woolf port 0715 In 1965 students were able to study law for the first time at Keele University. 50 years on from 1965 and working towards the golden anniversary of the first graduating law students in 2018, we have organised an exciting programme of events and activities to commemorate this anniversary. The range of activities will celebrate the achievements of our Alumni and  the development of the School of Law as well as providing an opportunity to showcase  the life and ethos of the School through our research and teaching, and plans for the future.

We are beginning to capture a sense of what life as a Keele law student was like and how the experience impacted on personal and professional development of our Alumni.

‌The ’50 words for 50 years’  initiative is a collection of statements from alumni incorporating memories of Keele and its influence in shaping the many and varied careers and experiences of our Alumni. It was launched in 2015 with this statement from Dame Fiona Woolf  “When I started at Keele in 1966, I thought lawyers just went to court. The Law Department widened my horizons so much that I am losing count of the jurisdictions where I’ve worked to bring cheaper, cleaner electricity to more people – around 40! What a journey - thank you, Keele!”

We look forward to welcoming you into the life of the School and hope you will be able to join us at one or more of our events.
