Law at Magdalen Programme
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 2020 programme ran on 12-14 August. We expect to run our third year of the programme in August 2021. Applications will open in Spring 2021.
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)
Applications will open in Spring 2021.
