Event Details

The Dickson Poon School of Law is pleased to announce that we will be launching Portraits of a Global Law School at this event, which has recently been installed on Floor -1 and published online. The project brought a group of over 50 alumni, staff and students together to have their portraits taken and to speak about their time at the School. In celebrating the achievements of our alumni, students and staff from a diverse array of backgrounds, the School is working in support of the university’s Race Equality Charter Mark. Creating a space for an open dialogue between the School and its wider community is central to tackling prejudice and perceived barriers. The project functions, not just as an opportunity for individuals to tell their personal stories, but also for an understanding of the School’s collective identity that goes beyond superficial categories of gender, race and ability.

The Dickson Poon School of Law at King's College London is one of the oldest law schools in England and recognised globally as one of the best law schools in the world - ranking first in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 and one of the top 25 worldwide (QS).

The School was established in 1831, and has played an integral role in the life of King's College London since the College was formed almost 200 years ago.

It has one of this country's most distinguished research and teaching reputations - all staff are active in research and among the leading international experts. This helps us to continue to push the boundaries of academic thought and to innovate across disciplines.

The School was renamed after the £20m donation from Sir Dickson Poon CBE, the Hong Kong based British philanthropist and was formally opened by Her Majesty the Queen in February 2012.

Sir Dickson Poon's £20m donation to the Law School, the largest in the College's history and believed to be the biggest ever to a British or European law faculty, is part of a £40m transformation project for the School which aims to further its reputation as one of the top law schools in the world and setting new standards in legal education and research

Located in the heart of the British legal and political world and surrounded by major global law firms, The Dickson Poon School of Law offers you invaluable interaction with the wider legal community and opportunities to establish links with your peers and a wider professional network.
