Applying for Law BlogThe Faculty has entered the blogosphere thanks to the efforts of two of its members.

Mark Elliott's blog, 'applying for law' ( is a blog for people who are applying to study Law at university or who are thinking of doing so. It is also of interest to current Law students, and to those who are just curious about legal issues. The blog highlights Law-related current events, offers a brief commentary on them, and suggests further reading. The blog primarily reflects Mark's own areas of interest and expertise: public law (constitutional and administrative law), human rights, and the relationship between law and politics and the way we are governed. The blog also features guest posts by other academics and by current and former law students. A recent post, which is part of a series giving a flavour of careers that Law graduates go on to, is about the work of the Law Commission and is written by Peter Yates, a graduate of St Catharine's College who is currently working at the Law Commission as a research assistant.

'Mcbridesguides' (, maintained by Nick Mc Bride, is a blog for law students. It provides access to essays and other materials and links to help students in their legal studies and researches. The blog includes a link to Pembroke College's virtual classroom in Law, which is designed to take users through a number of exercises to get a better understanding of the nature and function of law, and some of the debates that surround the law, and to develop some of the skills involved in studying and practising law.

The Faculty's Centre for European Legal Studies is making its presence felt in the Twittersphere at CELS, which is one of the most successful and active European law centres in the UK, tweets about interesting EU related news, cases, publications, and CELS' activities at the Faculty.

The Faculty of Law itself also maintains a Twitter feed, which you can follow to keep up to date on news and events.  This feed is available to read or follow at
