The unique nature of legal education at the University of Cambridge springs from the close interaction of students with passionate academics who are leading researchers and authorities in their field, the opportunity for students to explore their subject within a first-rate academic environment, and doing so whilst enjoying the esprit de corps that is forged by studying with other highly talented and motivated students. The Faculty of Law is fully committed to doing everything it reasonably can to ensure that all students benefit from this experience, just as countless preceding generations of Cambridge Law students have done, as we navigate the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.

These pages contain advice for students and staff at the Faculty of Law on the Faculty's procedures in relation to the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and information for current students and those holding offers for the 2020-21 academic year or considering applying in the future.
