Law Residential Event for Year 12 studentsAPPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED.

2020's Residential will take place from Monday, 16th March to Tuesday, 17th March 2020.  Please find the application form at the bottom of this page.

Applications will close at 9 AM, Monday 10th February. There is no automatic confirmation email once you submit your application. We aim to notify applicants of the outcome of their application via email by 5 PM Friday, 14th February. As with last year, we expect the programme to be oversubscribed. As well as academic merit, those considering the applications will be taking into account contextual information similar to that used in the Oxford admissions process (see here). An unsuccessful application does not reflect an applicant’s likelihood of being successful in an application for undergraduate study at the University of Oxford.

For those who have applied, please also note the following:

1. A successful place will automatically enrol you on the Law Open Day on Tuesday 17th March. If you plan on attending the Law Open Day regardless of whether or not you gain a place on the residential, we recommend you ask your school to register you for a place as insurance (bookings are made by schools not individuals): Oxford Law Open Days 

2. You can apply for both the Law Residential and the Peter Cane Legal Reasoning Prize. The residential will have finished before the afternoon event for Peter Cane Legal Reasoning Prize shortlisted candidates.


What will it involve?

The first day of this free residential (meals and accommodation included) will involve legal workshops at Corpus Christi College led by legal academics, with opportunities to meet and chat to current undergraduate law students. Students will stay overnight at Corpus, then have a closing session on Tuesday, 17th March before being taken to the Faculty of Law Open Day. 

Last year's event: In 2019, prospective Law students enjoyed a packed schedule on the first day of the residential, before attending the Law Faculty Open Day on March 12th. The programme included legal workshops, a tour of the college and advice for interviews and applications; see below for last year’s timetable. The event gave students a flavour of the study of the subject at university, and the opportunity to explore the College and, in June, the university. Students spoke to tutors and undergraduate students and found out more about the process of applying to study law at Oxford and what it is like to be a student here.
