Are you over the age of 20 and interested in studying Law at Cambridge?

The Faculty of Law at the University of Cambridge is holding an evening event at the offices of DLA Piper on 19 June 2018 for mature students considering Law at Cambridge.

Whether you have taken a gap year and are ready to get back into education, or you're considering a switch into a legal career, there are a million reasons to consider applying to the Cambridge Law degree as a mature student. This event aims to give any prospective Law students who are over the age of 20 the opportunity to hear more about mature student life, the process of applying to Cambridge, what the degree entails, career prospects and more.

The event will open for registration at 6:30pm, with a panel discussion from 7-8pm followed by a drinks reception at 8pm where we invite attendees to mix and mingle with our panel members.

This event is kindly hosted by DLA Piper.

Panel members

  • Ali Lyons, Schools Liaison Co-ordinator for the Faculty of Law at Cambridge
  • Leona Awoyele, Outreach and Recruitment Officer for Lucy Cavendish College Cambridge
  • Martin Stienfeld, Director of Studies in Law and Undergraduate Admissions Tutor at Hughes Hall Cambridge
  • Frances Meegan, Careers Adviser with the Cambridge Careers Service
  • A current practicing Lawyer, TBC
  • A current mature Cambridge Law student, TBC

Why 20+?

If you are currently over the age of 20, then you will be over 21 when starting your course at Cambridge, meaning that you would be considered a "mature student". Mature students take part in the same courses, have the same opportunities, and have access to the same support that any "traditional" student has from their university experience. However, we know that as a mature student, you might be interested in particular questions like:

  • What is student life like for mature students at Cambridge?
  • How should I choose which college to apply to? Do I need to apply to a mature college?
  • What are my career prospects? What career support is available?
  • Is it possible to balance my family life with my studies?
  • How will my particular qualifications and experience be viewed?

This event aims to help you answer these questions so that you can decide if a Law degree at Cambridge is the right next step for you, and if so, how you can make the strongest possible application.
