The new lecture theatre, to be named 'The Hogan Lovells Lecture Theatre' will be the primary teaching space in the new building. The Harvard-style lecture theatre has been designed to facilitate effective teaching and learning. With its “in the round” layout and interactive multi-media presentation aids, it represents the newest and most innovative teaching space at the University.
Durham Law School is ranked fourth in the UK for world-leading and internationally excellent research for law, it is also consistently rated one of the top UK law schools by influential university guides. With the naming of the lecture theatre, Hogan Lovells has entered into a long-term relationship with Durham Law School. In addition to providing financial support, Hogan Lovells will deliver other opportunities to Durham law students including hosting guest lectures and other legal awareness activities in the new lecture theatre such as practical workshops to demonstrate how academic law translates into practice.
James Doyle, graduate recruitment partner at Hogan Lovells, said:
"We are delighted to be supporting this new facility at Durham and the educational opportunities it brings. Hogan Lovells is committed to working collaboratively with academics to ensure we have the capacity in the UK to provide world class legal education".
Professor Deryck Beyleveld, Head of Durham Law School, said:
"Durham Law School already enjoys a world-class reputation for excellence in teaching and research and we are committed to growing and developing our capability even further. Our relationship with Hogan Lovells and the establishment of this new lecture theatre are a key part of this commitment".
