Faculty Overview law-school

The Midlands State University Law School is located in Gweru in the Midlands Province of Zimbabwe. It is situated approximately 5 kilometers from the City Centre. It is located at the Graduate School of Business Leadership, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Commerce Campus. The Faculty averages a student enrolment of 30 students per intake. Designated by the Council for Legal Education on the 7th of March 2007, the Midlands State University Law School marks an important chapter in Zimbabwean legal history as it is the first law school to be successfully established in post-independence Zimbabwe. Driven by our motto, Pioneering for a better legal frontier,we have cultivated a culture of hunger for more knowledge as we believe that knowledge is power. Our wide network is made possible, by our enterprising Vice Chancellor, and teaching staff who hail from diverse legal backgrounds. We have ingrained this culture in our alumni who are ever widening their circle of influence while advertising their cradle on the regional and international arena.

  • Bachelor of Laws Honours degree (LLBS)
  • Master of Laws in Constitutional and Human Rights Law( LLM) with various areas of specialization
