The Conference aims to give students an insight into both the study of Law and life as an undergraduate at Cambridge. Mornings will involve lectures in the Law Faculty on Sidgwick Site from University lecturers and eminent speakers from the legal profession and aim to give students an introduction into the subjects they will encounter as a Law undergraduate at Cambridge.
Afternoons give students the opportunity to partake in workshops organised by City law firms and barristers' chambers which focus on developing skills intrinsic to the legal profession such as debating, advocacy and negotiation.
Students will also be taken on a guided tour of Cambridge and will have the chance to investigate and experience the different colleges further.
Evening activities involve a range of events which crop up in the weekly activities of a normal student. There will be a social evening activity on the first night, a debate in the world-famous Cambridge Union between high-profile academics and a mock trial.
Delegates will stay in college undergraduate accommodation, under the supervision of the Committee and college Porters. This arrangement has proved to be entirely safe and satisfactory over the past four decades and also helps to offer an extra aspect of life at Cambridge. All meals will be provided from dinner on Monday evening until Thursday breakfast.
