Law at Magdalen 2020
Magdalen College is pleased to open applications for Law at Magdalen: a fully-funded residential access event for prospective Law students.
After the success of this event in 2019, we will be holding the residential again on 12-14 August 2020.
Law at Magdalen is designed specifically for Year 12 students from backgrounds that are historically under-represented at Oxford. The aim of the event is to introduce prospective students to the realities of studying Law, and to help them to familiarise themselves with Oxford’s approach to learning.
The residential will run from 15.00 on 12 August to 13.00 on 14 August 2020.
Across the three days, Magdalen Law tutors Joe Sampson and Katharine Grevling will introduce attendees to the breadth of the study of law through a series of classes drawing upon the full range of the Oxford course. Mixing theoretical discussions with source-based analyses, attendees will be given an insight into the daily work of an Oxford Law student. There will also be the opportunity to learn about the admissions process, including a demonstration Oxford interview, as well as the chance to meet current students while taking part in social activities.

Students will be accommodated at Magdalen free of charge and provided with all of their meals here. All reasonable travel expenses to and from Oxford via public transport will be reimbursed.
“I’d like to thank you for the opportunity you gave me to learn more about what Law is like at Oxford, as well as giving me the chance to meet with professors and develop my knowledge. I found the residential very informative and I feel much more confident now about applying. The itinerary was a great balance of work and free time and I would definitely recommend this course to my peers as an eye opener into Law at Oxford.” (2019 residential participant)
