To learn from industry experts, you will also visit companies, innovators, and experts to immerse you in the current issues defining your subject area and the overall course theme.

"I picked law because I’ve always been interested in it and the course was obviously hard but I learnt a lot."
"The time I spent at Oxford Summer Courses was unforgettable, which sparked my strong interest in studying law and made me fall in love with Oxford. There were only two students in the law-learning class, and our tutor was a professional with extensive experience in the legal field."
"After finishing the course, I feel as if have not only learnt more about law but also understand how our modern-day society is able to function in the way it does. As the rules that keep life in order and punish wrong doers using justice, as I learnt in my first class, law is used every day and is crucial in our lives."
