duration 2 weeks

The Cambridge Summer College is a two-week university preparation programme in the beautiful city of Cambridge. Participants on this programme will live and study at Clare College, Cambridge and select two subjects to explore in depth for the duration of the course. English Law is one of the most popular subjects that we offer.

The English Law course will give students an insight into basic jurisprudence – the theory and the study of law.

Students spend a great deal of time discussing and debating fundamental social concepts, such as justice, liberty and rights. Through the study of both constitutional and criminal law, the class will consider the pressures that shape the development of the law and how it is enforced.

The course helps students realise the pivotal position of law in civilised society through in-depth analysis of decisive cases and their repercussions.

Topics covered include:
• Written and unwritten constitutions
• Political and legal constitutions
• The rule of law
• Freedom of expression
• The changing constitution
• The principles of criminal law
• The intention of a criminal act
• The United Kingdom in the European Union
