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

    The University of Oxford (informally Oxford University, or simply Oxford), located in the city of Oxford, Oxfordshire, England, is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. It is also regarded as one of the world's leading academic institutions. The name is sometimes abbreviated as Oxon. in post-nominals (from the Latin Oxoniensis), although Oxf is sometimes used in official publications. The University has 38 independent colleges, and 6 permanent private halls.

    The university traces its roots back to at least the end of the 12th century, although the exact date of foundation remains unclear. After a dispute between students and townsfolk broke out in 1209, some of the academics at Oxford fled north-east to the town of Cambridge, where the University of Cambridge was founded. The two universities (collectively known as "Oxbridge") have since had a long history of competition with each other.

    The University of Oxford is a member of the Russell Group of research-led British universities, the Coimbra Group (a network of leading European universities), the League of European Research Universities, International Alliance of Research Universities and is also a core member of the Europaeum. Academically, Oxford is consistently ranked in the world's top 10 universities. For more than a century, it has served as the home of the Rhodes Scholarship, which brings highly accomplished students from a number of countries to study at Oxford as postgraduates.

    There are 38 colleges of the University of Oxford and 6 Permanent Private Halls, each with its own internal structure and activities. All resident students, and most academic staff, must be members both of a college or hall, and of the university. The heads of Oxford colleges are known by various titles, according to the college, including warden, provost, principal, president, rector, master or dean. The colleges join together as the Conference of Colleges to discuss policy and to deal with the central University administration. Teaching members of the colleges (fellows and tutors) are collectively and familiarly known as dons (though the term is rarely used by members of the university itself). In addition to residential and dining facilities, the colleges provide social, cultural, and recreational activities for their members. Colleges have responsibility for admitting undergraduates and organising their tuition; for graduates, this responsibility falls upon the departments.

    Oxford's Law Faculty

    Law has been taught in Oxford for some 850 years. For centuries law meant Roman law. The idea of bringing the common law into the university was conceived here in the eighteenth century and realized in 1758 when Sir William Blackstone became the first Vinerian Professor of English Law. Oxford has since been home to many of the key figures of the modern common law such as Anson, Dicey, *******, Cheshire, Cross, Morris, and Hart.

    Today's Oxford's Law Faculty keeps faith with all this history, and the study of the common law, including its interaction with modern legislation and regulation, remains central to our pursuits. But our work has also been enriched over the years by strengths in comparative law, the philosophy of law, international law, and most recently European Law. Our historic connection with the Roman tradition has been reborn in our collaborations with continental European universities. And specialist centres in criminology and socio-legal studies mean that Oxford is now unsurpassed as a place for interdisciplinary work connected with the law and its development.

    Our much-admired tutorial system means that students at all levels enjoy direct and intensive engagement with all this expertise and inspiration. But our students also learn a great deal from each other. We have one of the most diverse student populations in the United Kingdom, and our collegiate system encourages collaborative learning and teamwork, as well as bringing students of many disciplines into daily contact with each other. This is why our undergraduate law degrees are so highly prized by employers in the legal profession and beyond, and why our graduate law degrees are among the most sought-after in the world.

    Undergraduate Study

    The Oxford undergraduate law programmes are among the UK's most highly regarded. Many Oxford law graduates go on to rewarding careers in the legal professions, but many choose other walks of life and the programmes cater equally to them. The programmes are also widely admired outside the UK. As a graduate of Oxford Law you will be much in demand for your rigour, thoughtfulness, adaptability, and clarity of thought and expression.
