Law Residential 2024

Our next Law Residential will take place in March 2024. More details will be released here late 2023/early 2024.

What does the Residential involve?

The Residential is an opportunity for current Year 12 students to engage with Law and learn what it's like to study Law. The first day of the Residential features legal workshops at Corpus Christi College led by academics, with opportunities to meet and chat to current undergraduate Law students. Attendees have a tour of the college, as well as advice for interviews and applications. Meals and accommodation are included in the Residential, free of charge. Successful applicants stay overnight at Corpus Christi College before being taken to the Faculty of Law Open Day on the second day.

Law Residential 2023

This year's Law Residential took place on Monday 13th March and Tuesday 14th March 2023. We had 30 attendees stay at Corpus and they all took part in our three different workshops, hosted by our tutors, Professor Matt Dyson, Ms Sonam Gordhan, and Dr Lisa Hsin.

Thank you to all those who applied for the residential and to all those who attended. We hope you enjoyed it!

History of the Law Residential

Corpus' Law Residential has been running since 2017. During the pandemic (2020 and 2021), the Law Residential workshops moved online. In 2022, the Law Residential returned to being delivered in-person at Corpus Christi, taking place in March 2022. Following the pandemic, the College began providing an online April Law Workshop after the Law Residential, for those candidates who applied but who we were unable to host for the Residential itself.
