We are greatly looking forward to welcoming new and returning students to the Faculty of Law for the academic year 2021–22. In the light of ongoing uncertainty resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, our teaching programmes for 2021–22 have been designed in order to enable us to offer students an outstanding educational experience while being mindful of both the current public health situation and the possibility that it may change during the course of the year.

The unique nature of legal education at the University of Cambridge springs from the close interaction of students with academics who are leading researchers and authorities in their field, and the opportunity for students to explore their subject within a first-rate academic environment while 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 continue to navigate the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.

On these pages, you will find information about how we will be delivering our teaching programmes and assessing students in 2021–22, and about the arrangements that are in place in the David Williams Building, in which the Faculty of Law and the Squire Law Library are housed, with a view to enabling the work of the Faculty to continue safely in the current circumstances. Specific information about arrangements for the use of the Squire Law Library can be found on its website.
