In the Law programme offered by the University of Cambridge, you can study theoretical and sociological aspects of law such as jurisprudence or parts of criminology.
The present Faculty teaching staff has expertise across nearly every aspect of English law and its history, as well as European Union law, international law, civil law, legal philosophy and criminology.
The Faculty building houses lecture theatres, seminar rooms and a moot court, as well as the comprehensive Squire Law Library, offering an extensive collection of printed and electronic resources and excellent computing facilities.
The Faculty and University Law Society organise numerous activities including formal meetings, informal barristers’ and solicitors’ evenings, social events, lectures and moots (debates about hypothetical legal cases).
Currently, a Law degree alone isn’t a qualification for practice but ‘qualifying law graduates’ (who’ve passed the seven ‘foundation’ subjects) may proceed directly to vocational courses that lead to professional examinations.
The foundation subjects are Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Law of Tort, Law of Contract, Land Law, Law of Trusts (Equity), and Law of the EU. Please note that professional bodies are reviewing the requirements for qualifying as a solicitor or barrister.
The graduates go on to qualify as barristers and solicitors and find employment within the legal departments of the Civil Service, local government, industrial and commercial firms, banks, and international organizations. Others stay in academia or seek careers in administration, management, politics or finance.
