I’m Raeesa Rajmohamed and I’ve just completed my first term here at the University of BristolLaw School. I’d love to show you around. The University of Bristol’s Law School isbased in one of the city’s most iconic landmarks – the Wills Memorial Building.It feels a great privilege to study in such a fantastic building – the more you look,the more you see.

This is the grand entrance with the spectaculardouble stairway.It’s also home to the Porters’ Lodge.‘Hi, how are you?’‘Not too bad, and yourself?’The Porters keep a close eye on the comings and goings here, and are a great source ofhelp and information.‘

Thank you so much. Take care, bye!’.The ground floor is home to Earth Sciences, but you may find you have some tutorials andlectures down here as well.The spectacular Great Hall is where really big lectures and events are held.There are other grand reception rooms for talks, debating and mooting competitions.I loved using the old Council Chamber for our Hunt Cup debating competition.Keep your fingers crossed for our team after the holiday – and even last week we had alaw networking event which was great to meet with different partners of the firms.And there are different common rooms for undergraduate or postgraduate, which is great to eat lunchin between lectures. The grand library is an inspiration in moreways than one. And this is where you’ll find friends in between tutorialsOn the second floor you have the admin offices for anything like handing in essays or roombookings Up on the third floor we have a variety ofseminar and tutorial rooms where you get to discuss topics in a more detailed manner thanin lectures.

Head of School.The building is pretty large, but you’ll soon get to know where your lecturers andtutors live. Although they say there are some secret passagewaysand staircases that only the porters know! If you ask nicely, or join a tour, the topof the tower is definitely worth a visit.The Wills Memorial Tower is home to Bristol’s biggest bell.E flat, in case you’re wondering. Back down to earth, and you can see what aphenomenal location the Law School is in. We’re right in the heart of one of the nicestparts of the city, Clifton Triangle….And near all the other University faculties and facilities.

So that concludes our tour of the Wills Memorial Building. I can tell you I’ve only beenhere for a term and I already love it. I’ve had so many fantastic opportunities and thepeople are wonderful. So why not see for yourself?English (Canada)
