Cambridge Summer Law Conference
From the 3rd-5th of July, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, hosted its first ever Summer Law Conference, an opportunity for state school students to attend lectures by law professors on a residential course to experience life as a Law student at Corpus Christi. Out of over 150 applicants, 38 were selected, and stayed in the college accommodation for the duration of the conference, giving them the chance to explore Cambridge and see what not only the university, but also what Cambridge itself has to offer. After being lucky enough to have been selected, it was an incredible opportunity to hear some of the brightest minds of the college give introductory talks to different areas of law, including Tort and Contract Law, as well as Public and International Law from speakers such as Helen McGrath, Jonathan Morgan and Joanna McCunn. The lectures also offered the opportunity for debate and discussion of key topics such cyber-attacks and retaliation territorial states and the oppression of religious freedom in secular schools, which was a thoroughly lively, and perhaps most entertaining, part of the course, as students from all over the country offered unique and individual perceptions to the problems presented. Ultimately, the conference was a fascinating insight to the lives of law students at Cambridge University, as well as a fantastic opportunity to talk to students and professors of law who offered valuable advice for the prospective students.
