We’ve published more than 2,000 stories since we launched the JMU Journalism website back in May 2009, and now’s the time for a fresh new look.

Our new website is now live here, though it is still possible to access a selection of the stories published on our old site at: www.archive-jmu-journalism.org.uk

Relaunch work will carry on during the summer as we create our mobile platform for better displays on phones and hand-held devices.

We hope you like our redesigned website, with much more to come from the Class of 2013 as they seek to build on the success of Liverpool Life so far.

The ethos behind the Liverpool Life site is simple: Journalism students turn their coursework into content, producing stories which are published as part of their studies, assisted by some graduates and staff.

Our target audience includes Scousers, LJMU students, current and prospective Journalism students, plus anyone in the rest of the world with an interest in Liverpool… and that’s a lot of people.

Click around the new site to see some of the best stories produced in the last academic year.
