Sutton Trust Summer School in Law, Cambridge 2016The Faculty of Law was pleased to once again host the annual Sutton Trust Summer School in Law on 25-29 July. A group of 30 sixth form students from around the country attended the week-long course to learn more about university life and the academic study of Law.

The Sutton Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to increasing social mobility and fighting educational inequality. The Faculty of Law is proud to partner with the Sutton Trust each year to offer this unique educational opportunity.

Participants of this year’s summer school course experienced the academic side of university life through a series of law lectures and workshops led by academics from the Faculty. The participants’ work culminated in a mock murder trial presided over by Professor Christopher Forsyth, a member of the Faculty who has served both as a barrister and a judge. In addition to this unique academic introduction, participants also learned more about student life at the University of Cambridge through their various host colleges.
