Explore the most significant legal themes and theories that will shape your knowledge and moral compass


There aren’t enough hours in the day for us to teach you the entirety of English law. So we’ve condensed it down to make it accessible and enjoyable to study. Our Law course has been meticulously designed to deliver the most crucial themes and theories that will help you thrive in your chosen legal field.

We’ll explore questions such as – to what extent should an individual judges view of morality allow them to depart from legal precedent? How do different legal theories influence a judges decision making? And how are boundaries drawn and adhered to?

Absorb the expertise of the finest academic minds in Oxford and Cambridge – your tutors will work regularly in the law environment and be involved in investigating and even creating the newest legal developments, as well as being highly experienced in teaching law courses. And they’ll dedicate their time to your focus and achievement, both in small group seminars and individually for the greatest results in the classroom and beyond.
