During our Law course you will develop the key skills expected of undergraduates by tackling controversial issues and considering the wider ramifications of legislation. Using debate and discussion, this course will help you to analyse civil and criminal cases. You’ll also get a first taste of mooting, the formal debating of a point of law.
What will I cover?
All our tutors are current Oxford and/or Cambridge PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. Your tutors will take you beyond your school curriculum to investigate your subject at a much higher level - this is great preparation for university/college study! You may even have the opportunity to learn about your tutor’s original, unpublished research.
We know that when our tutors design their own courses, rather than reciting from a textbook, the quality of teaching and learning is much, much higher. We will publicise details of 2019 courses here as they are confirmed, so watch this space.
In the meantime, here is a taster of what previous Oxbridge International Summer School tutors have covered in Law
Law Tutors at Oxbridge International Summer School
Tom completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Oxford, and has stayed for his PhD. His main areas of research are in Constitutional Law and Human Rights. His course focused on British Constitutional Law, where students debated the sovereignty of parliament, freedom of expression and rights in a dictatorship.
Emma is currently studying for a DPhil in Criminology at Lincoln College, Oxford, having completed a Law degree at the University of Bristol and an MPhil in Criminological Research at Newnham College, Cambridge. Her doctoral research explores the lived experience of claiming wrongful conviction in prison. In particular, she is interested in the various coping mechanisms employed by individuals, how the perceived lack of legitimacy affects prison life, and the consequences of maintaining innocence in the prison environment.
