Law Residential 2023

The Law Residential is open to all Year 12 (or equivalent) students. Applications will open on Tuesday 3rd January 2023 and will close at noon on Tuesday 7th February. Information on how to apply will be available soon. 

The expected date of the Law Residential is Monday 13th March to Tuesday 14th March. This will include an overnight stay at Corpus Christi, free of charge (including meals).

History of the Law Residential

In 2022, the Law Residential was delivered in-person at Corpus Christi, taking place from 14th - 15th March 2022. The College also provided an online April Law Workshop on 28th April with Professor Matt Dyson, for those candidates who applied but who we were unable to host for the Residential itself. 

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. 

What does the residential involve?

The first day of the residential features legal workshops at Corpus Christi College led by legal academics, with opportunities to meet and chat to current undergraduate law students. Meals and accommodation is included so the residential is free. Students stay overnight at Corpus before being taken to the Faculty of Law Open Day.
