Law Tripos

During Lent Term 2021, in line with University policy and in the light of the England-wide lockdown that commenced in early January, all Faculty teaching will take place online. In respect of Lent Term 2021, references to in-person teaching below should therefore be read as referring instead to online interactive teaching. Where relevant, recorded lectures will continue to be made available just as they were in Michaelmas Term 2020.

Lectures (full papers)

  • Lectures in Tripos full papers will be pre-recorded.
  • Students will be able to view these lectures irrespective of their capacity to participate in any in-person teaching and/or whether they are remotely located.

Part IA/IB Paper 14 workshops

  • Most workshops will be delivered in-person.
  • However, at least one iteration of each workshop will be delivered online with a view to accommodating students who are remotely participating or otherwise unable to take part in in-person teaching. We will endeavour to take account of time zone issues when scheduling online iterations of Paper 14 workshops.
  • The Faculty’s Interactive Teaching Principles apply to this form of teaching.

Part II half papers: Lectures

  • Half paper lectures will be pre-recorded.
  • Students will be able to view these lectures irrespective of their capacity to participate in any in-person teaching and/or whether they are remotely located.

Part II half papers: Interactive sessions

  • Recorded lectures will be supplemented by interactive sessions that will provide opportunities to ask questions, and engage in discussion with, half paper lecturers.
  • These interactive sessions will be delivered in real time, either in-person or online.
  • Whether any given session is delivered in-person or online will be determined by reference to the Faculty’s Interactive Teaching Principles.   

Part II seminar papers: One-to-one meetings

  • Seminar paper delivery involves a mix of group interaction in seminar sessions and one-to-one meetings with dissertation supervisors.
  • One-to-one meetings can occur in-person or online, but must take place online if either or both of the student or the dissertation supervisor prefers this.

Part II seminar papers: Seminars

  • Seminars will be delivered in real time, either in-person or online.
  • Whether any given session is delivered in-person or online will be determined by reference to the Faculty’s Interactive Teaching Principles.
