The Institute of Law, Jersey’s new law school, is moving to Law House.

Local commercial property specialists, Buckley and Company Limited, have recently negotiated the letting of the top two floors of Law House at the corner of Seale Street and York Street to the Institute of Law on behalf of Falles Holdings Limited.

The Institute of Law offers a course for lawyers planning to qualify as advocates and Jersey solicitors and provides a focus for the study and development of Jersey law. It seeks to promote the continuance of Jersey’s legal heritage and make Jersey law more accessible to the public. The premises will house a teaching room for the Institute and Jersey’s law library.

Governing body member James Lambert said:

‘We are delighted with the standard of the finish and the location of the premises, which have already proven to provide extremely flexible teaching spaces, as well as accommodating the law library.’

Formerly occupied by a trust company, the four storey building has been comprehensively refurbished to provide modern, user friendly air conditioned office space benefiting from a contemporary fit out and finishes designed by Elliott Design Partnership. The vacant first floor remains available to lease on attractive and affordable terms.

Richard Lock, Associate Director at Buckley and Company, said:

‘Both we and our client are pleased to have negotiated this transaction with such an auspicious organisation and are looking forward to setting the seal on the scheme by securing an occupier for the remaining floor as the local market continues to pick up steam.’
