Technology has given us a world of opportunities. We’ve connected with people all over the world and created our identities through galleries, shares, and memes. But what happens when our freedom is restricted? How do governments control crime? From cybercrime to fraud and your right to a free trial, our Law course explores the notion of what’s right and wrong in the eyes of the modern law and the pressing issues regulating our lives.
Learning in a small group (no more than 8 students and often fewer) means that you get quality time with your teacher and ask as many questions as you like! Through interactive learning, our teachers will guide you through new concepts and assign you practice tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You will also have an opportunity for group work, independent research, and homework assignments to be discussed in class. Small classes mean everyone gets to have their say, and students learn from debating with one another, as well as from their tutor.
It’s all about balance. Study with us at Cambridge and we’ll help you embrace everything the city has to offer – from socialising with new friends with shared interests to field trips and excursions for practical lessons you just can’t learn from a textbook. We understand students. We make sure you’re stimulated with a social calendar that packs it all in, from traditional guided tours of the University museums to a tranquil afternoon punting on the River Cam.
And of course, you’ll experience the true Cambridge way of life from weekly formal dinners to competitive debating and croquet. Remember to save some energy for dancing the night away at a disco!
"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."
"The style of teaching at Oxford has been a massive change to what I am used to as I go to a school where the classes consist of 30-35 students and it can be taught to focus or understand the teacher’s explanations. Being in a small class has benefited me, as I am closer with the teacher and the class tends to have better debates."
"I really enjoyed it because my tutor had a lot of experience in the field and all the seminars were very intriguing."
Home to Cambridge University since 1209, this city is famous for its cyclists, its museums, and of course, the 107 Nobel Laureates. But have you heard of the Mathematical Bridge (c.1749)- the first bridge built using mathematical principles? Or did you know that the first official game of football with rules similar to those we use now was played in 1848 in the middle of the city? Cambridge has so much to offer, from a vibrant history to cobbled streets and cozy cafes. It’s the perfect place to study, and spend a summer exploring.
You will be staying in single or twin room college accommodation, occupied by students during term time, located within a mile of the centre. Your accommodation will be ideally located to explore all the best areas of the city, from its oldest colleges to its lovely cafes.Ensuite rooms may be available at some locations.
You will get a chance to eat in a variety of restaurants in Cambridge, tasting food from all over the world. On top of that, you’ll be treated to a delicious formal dinner in your college - a three course meal where everyone gets a chance to dress up!
