Law and Law with Law Studies in Europe

Tutors and Lecturers: Prof. John Cartwright, Prof. Edwin Simpson, Dr Hayley Hooper

Places at Christ Church: 10

You do not have to intend to be a practising lawyer to read Law: most of our students go into the legal profession, but not all. Whether your strength at school has been in mathematics, history, literature, languages or science, law is your subject if you enjoy debate and discussion; are interested in the legal issues you read in the newspapers (whether on the home or international pages); and enjoy researching and solving difficult intellectual problems. What are our particular strengths at Christ Church? We have:

  •     a lively group of law students, amongst the largest of any Oxford college, whose diversity is increased by our continuing commitment to the four-year course in Law with Law Studies in Europe;
  •     the resources to ensure that both our graduate and undergraduate students are amply provided for; one of the largest and most complete college law libraries; and the advantage of three law tutors who together teach most of the compulsory subjects for the course, ensuring our students   benefit from close personal supervision throughout their time here;
  •     a college Law Society which arranges functions the students want, such as moots (mock-trials), social events, and visits to solicitors’ firms and the Inns of Court in London.
