The Law and Psychology building, viewed from near the Hub.

The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the Department of Law and Criminology.

The three-storey building includes a 265-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning.

Elsewhere on campus, there is a mooting room (a mock courtroom) where Law and Policing students can train and practice their advocacy skills and cross-examination techniques, as well as preparing for giving evidence in court.

The EHU Police Training and Simulation Facility, part of which is furbished as a police station, is used to simulate a wide range of crime scenes. This will enable Law and Policing students to work together in areas such as gathering and analysing evidence, including forensic evidence at crime scenes, as well as practicing interview techniques used by the police through role play, while also ensuring that the rights of suspects are upheld.
