Advanced pre-university course in Law in Cambridge colleges

You will take part in a comprehensive curriculum covering the essentials of constitutional, criminal, human rights, and EU law. The legal profession is explored on your law summer school through a series of dynamic academic sessions, for example, you will leave the comfort of the classroom to visit the Cambridge Magistrates’ Court. Additionally, you will be invited to take advantage of LNAT workshops where you’ll learn how to study for the challenging Law National Aptitude Test.

Learn directly from expert academics from world-class universities

You will explore novel concepts and share ideas in small groups of like-minded and ambitious peers from around the world. In small class sizes averaging 7 students, you will be guided by expert tutors who have honed their expertise through teaching undergraduate students at world-class universities, including the universities of Cambridge, Oxford, and Harvard. Our rigorous vetting process guarantees that all participants are taught by engaging and supportive educators who are, most of all, enthusiastic about sharing their expertise to ensure our summer school teaching is of the highest quality. Immerse™ is an unrivalled academic experience.

Boost your confidence and develop key attributes in academic skills workshops

Our workshops are geared towards unlocking participants’ potential, giving them the tools to prepare for the next steps of their education and future goals. Build upon existing study skills to support future university-level learning. These workshops explore a diverse and enriching range of topics – past examples have ranged from ‘Productivity tips’ to ’21st Century Technology Skills’. We’re sure that you’ll learn something completely new. Unlike traditional schools, Immerse allows you to learn beyond the traditional curriculum. This programme is designed for students with at least an upper-intermediate level of English (B2).

Example Modules

The Separation of Powers: You will explore one of the most important pillars of liberal-democratic politics and a cornerstone of British constitutionalism: the separation of powers. The discussion will centre on the purpose and value of the separation of powers and its complexity, given that all branches of the state arguably make and interpret the law.

Equality Before the Law: You'll explore the role of equality within the UK constitutional framework and in particular, considerin whether this principle is a procedural or substantive norm, applying only to rule application or itself constitutive of legal rules. Discussion then focuses on how exactly the state should respect this principle within a modern context.

Evil Laws and Evil Legal Systems: In this module you will examine the conflict between natural law theory and legal positivism in greater depth. You will consider the practical implications for adopting particular conceptions of law when courts are required to deal with evil laws and evil legal systems. The Nuremburg trials help to locate and ground these implications.

Criminal Law in Practice: You will prepare for your assigned role as you explore a criminal law case in practice. Whether a witness, the accused, the victim the prosecution lawyer, defence lawyer or judge, all participants have a crucial role to play in the justice system and this provides you with an opportunity to see the law in action, as well as develop oratory skills.

There are also two excursions during the programme, one day trip to visit Oxford and its constituent colleges, as well as an optional day out in London, seeing the city’s most famous landmarks as well as some free time for shopping. Those who choose not to travel to London are invited to afternoon tea in Cambridge. Activities and excursions are run by our team of friendly mentors – whose main job is to maximise your enjoyment.

Experience traditional 'Formal Hall'

Formal Hall is a traditional weekly meal that takes place in every college. This is an opportunity for students to dress up, dine by candlelight in the magical surroundings of a Cambridge college’s dining hall. As an Immerse student, you will experience formal dinner three times during your stay – once per week in Cambridge, as well as in an Oxford University college on the excursion day. Formal hall is truly a memorable occasion, so remember to bring some smart clothes!
