Nottingham Law School – Canvas Bag Artwork Competition

Nottingham Law School – Canvas Bag Artwork Competition

30 April deadline

Overview of Nottingham Law School

Nottingham Law School is one of the largest university law schools in the UK with a reputation for innovation and delivering the highest standards of legal training and education. Nottingham Law School provides a range of undergraduate LLB and postgraduate LLM degrees. The School also provides professional legal education including the Graduate Diploma in Law conversion (GDL), the Legal Practice Course (LPC), for intending solicitors, and the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) for intending barristers.

The School has an award-winning Legal Advice Centre where students, under the supervision of Nottingham Law School staff offer legal advice on a number of legal issues to the local community on a pro bono basis.

Nottingham Law School’s outstanding facilities, include a suite of wood-panelled courtrooms; one with a civil court set up and the others with a full criminal court set up, complete with judges bench, dock, witness stand and seating for the jury, barristers, solicitors, press and public.

The School has a strong reputation for Mooting and competes in both regional and international competitions. Mooting is the oral presentation of a legal issue or problem against an opposing counsel and before a judge. It is perhaps the closest experience that a student can have whilst at university to appearing in court.


What we need

Nottingham Law School (NLS) are looking for a new design to print on their canvas bags, which currently just has the NLS logo on it.

  • We are looking for some creative artwork that works in colour and in black and white.
  • It could be a drawing, a photograph, a graphic, stitching etc. The artwork needs to be representative of the subject area – Law.  We would like the imagery to be original but also strongly recognisable within the legal area.
  • We want current and prospective students to be happy using this bag to promote the School.
  • The bags will be approx. 370 mm (W) x 400 mm (H) so the artwork will need to be sized accordingly for this. The Nottingham Law School red RGB values are: R=237    G= 26    B=59


One winner will receive a £70 Amazon voucher.
