Course Objectives

  • To introduce core concepts in the theory and practice of law.
  • To discover how law and lawyers function in the fields of criminal, familial, tort and contract law, as well as how solicitors, barristers and judges operate within these domains.
  • To develop an understanding of how argumentation is best deduced and applied in both theoretical and practical legal case studies.

Public Speaking: Making and Breaking Cases

In order to succeed as a lawyer, it is vital that students master the art of presenting their cases. Law reflects this by having the art of public speaking as the central focus of our syllabus. Throughout the programme, students will participate in an assignment in which they will develop a case for the defence, or prosecution, in a mock legal trial. This project will culminate in a full simulation of a legal trial, including judges, lawyers, barristers, prosecutors and defendants.


Where can Law at Oxford College Summer School take me?

Law at Oxford College Summer School is the first step towards a future degree in Law. Such a degree can open the door to a variety of legal positions such as being a lawyer, a barrister, a solicitor and/or a judge.
