The Committee of Heads of University Law Schools (CHULS) is a learned society representing Law Schools in the UK and their interests, which promotes mutual respect and active cooperation between Law Schools regionally, nationally and internationally. It provides a collegiate forum for Heads to discuss issues of relevance in relation to the management of legal education and research. CHULS actively supports the other learned subject associations of law on matters of mutual interest, and represents its members in communications with the professional bodies for legal education, and other sectoral and government agencies.

CHULS hosts regular events for members including an Annual Residential and meetings and workshops throughout the year.

On behalf of the CHULS Executive Committee I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our members and an invitation to Heads of Law Schools in the UK to apply for membership. To find out more please contact the CHULs administrative secretary Janey Robins via email
