  • UK law degrees: University of Cambridge

    University of Cambridge offering qualifying law degrees recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

    The University of Cambridge (often Cambridge University), located in Cambridge, England, is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world. The name is sometimes abbreviated as Cantab. in post-nominals, a shortened form of Cantabrigiensis (an adjective derived from Cantabrigia, the Latinised form of Cambridge).

    The University grew out of an association of scholars in the city of Cambridge that was formed, early records suggest, in 1209 by scholars leaving Oxford after a dispute with local townsfolk there. The universities of Oxford and Cambridge are often jointly referred to as "Oxbridge." In addition to cultural and practical associations as a historic part of English society, the two universities also have a long history of rivalry with each other.

    Academically, Cambridge is consistently ranked in the world's top 5 universities. It has produced 83 Nobel Laureates to date, more than any other university in the world according to some counts.

    University and Colleges: A Brief History

    The University of Cambridge is rich in history - its famous Colleges and University buildings attract visitors from all over the world. But the University's museums and collections also hold many treasures which give an exciting insight into some of the scholarly activities, both past and present, of the University's academics and students.

    The University of Cambridge is one of the world's oldest universities and leading academic centres, and a self-governed community of scholars. Its reputation for outstanding academic achievement is known world-wide and reflects the intellectual achievement of its students, as well as the world-class original research carried out by the staff of the University and the Colleges.

    Many of the University's customs and unusual terminology can be traced to roots in the early years of the University's long history, and this booklet looks to the past to find the origins of much that is distinctive in the University of today.

    Cambridge Law Test
    Cambridge no longer uses the LNAT (Law National Admissions Test). Instead, most applicants are required to sit the Cambridge Law Test ? a new test developed by the Cambridge Colleges.

    Sixth Form Conference
    The Cambridge University Sixth Form Law Conference offers Y12 school or college students an opportunity to experience something of what it is like to study Law at Cambridge as an undergraduate.

    There are 31 Colleges in Cambridge. Three are for women (Murray Edwards [the current trading name of New Hall], Newnham and Lucy Cavendish) and two admit only graduates (Clare Hall and Darwin). The remainder house and teach all students enrolled in courses of study or research at the University. Further information about the Cambridge colleges is available on the University website.

    Funding Opportunities
    The Faculty has a very limited number of trust funds from which grants can be made to students.

    Five degrees are available in Law, the B.A., LL.M., M.Litt, Ph.D. and LL.D. There are, in addition, the MPhil in Criminology, the MPhil in Criminological Research, the Diploma in Legal Studies, and the Diploma in International Law.
