Each year, I talk to propspective Cambridge Law students at open days held by my College, St Catharine’s. I have recorded a YouTube version of the talk. It covers studying Law at Cambridge generally and at St Catharine’s College in particular. I discuss what it is like to study Law at St Catharine’s, how we teach Law at Cambridge and how our course is structured, and outline the broad range of papers we offer. I also discuss the application process, including interviews and the Cambridge Law Test, and make some suggestions about how those thinking of applying to study Law at university can develop and test their interest in the subject.
The talk it can be accessed via this link or viewed below. (The image quality appears to be higher if you view via the link.) The video incorporates the slides that accompanied my talk and an audio version of the talk itself. If you are interested in applying to St Catharine’s to study Law and have further questions, please get in touch via our Admissions Office. Further information for prospective Law students can be found on this page. (Please note that, since recording this talk in 2013, our interview practice has changed somewhat: we now give Law applicants one 40-minute interview rather than two shorter interviews.)
Finally, you may like to watch a video recorded by three St Catharine’s Law students about what it’s like to study here. That video can be viewed below or via this link.
