Law Taster Programmes 2023

These programmes are run by our Trinity College law researchers and teachers who will teach both an online taster on Roman Law and theft, and an in-person day at Trinity College which will extend this topic further.

Both events do of course come with no joining fee.

You should sign up if you are a UK student in Year 12 (lower sixth/S5), interested in law. You may never have studied Roman law, or you might already have an interest in it, this webinar and day event is suitable for anyone who wants to find out more. 

Law Taster Webinar – Monday 22nd May, 5pm-6:30pm

Open to all, just register here (deadline noon 22nd May)  

There is no application required for this event, but you will need to register.

Our law teachers and researchers Ben and Joe will introduce you to studying law at Cambridge, and more specifically to the topic of Roman law. We will:

  • Deliver an academic taster on Roman law and theft
  • Suggest further reading and events
  • Suggest why you should consider law
  • Answer your questions

If you are considering studying law at university and are curious about Cambridge, this is a webinar for you.


Law Taster Day – 30th June, 10am-4pm

Apply and register here (deadline 5pm 30th May)

This is a chance to visit Trinity College, and to find out what it would be like to live and study here as a law student. You will get to look round the College, eat lunch with us and chat to current teachers and students.

Ben and Joe will extend our topic on Roman law, with academic sessions on property damage, and comparisons to English law. Overall there will be:

  • A tour of the College
  • Lunch, free of charge
  • Introduction to studying, learning and living law at Cambridge
  • Workshops on topics in English law and Roman law
  • Application guidance
  • Chances to ask questions to admissions staff, academics and students



Each of these events is aimed towards UK students who are currently Year 12 (England & Wales), Year 13 (Northern Ireland), and S5 (Scotland).

All are welcome to sign up for the law webinar. For our taster day, to register you will need to indicate your academic record and interest in law.

Our events aim to support students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in higher education, including those with little or no family experience with higher education, those whose schools don’t send many applicants to Cambridge University, and students who’ve spent any time in care.

You will hear back from us on the success of your taster day application soon after the deadline has passed.
