In 2021, the Law Residential was adapted into a virtual programme of Spring Workshops which took place from 15 March 2021 to 17 March 2021. 

In 2022, the Residential once again took place in person, at Corpus Christi College from 14th-15th March. The decision to hold the Residential in person will, however, be subject to COVID-19 guidance.

The College will also provide an online April Law Workshop on 28th April with Professor Matt Dyson, for those candidates who applied but that we were unable to host for the Residential itself. Click here to view the April Law Workshop Code of Conduct


Applications for the 2022 Law Residential are now closed.

The Law Residential is open to all Year 12 students (or equivalent). Applications will open at 9am on Wednesday 5th January, 2022. We will be accepting applications until 9am (UK time) on Monday 7th February. We aim to notify applicants of the outcome of their application via email by 5pm on Friday 11th February. 

Please click here to apply to the 2022 Law Residential.

There is no automatic confirmation email once you submit your application. As with previous years, 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 the contextual information used in the Oxford admissions process. An unsuccessful application does not reflect an applicant’s likelihood of being successful in an application for undergraduate study at the University of Oxford.

Please also note the following:

1. A successful application will automatically enrol you onto the in-person Law Faculty Taster Day. If you would like to attend the in-person Taster Day regardless of whether or not you gain a place on the residential, or if you would like to attend the online Taster Day, you should register separately. Click here for more information.

2. You can apply for both the Law Residential and the Peter Cane Legal Reasoning Prize. 

3. You may also be interested in reading our Law Diary and getting in touch with our Law Ambassadors.

4. Please email if you have any queries.
