Law students at Pembroke receive an education that combines the College’s historically strong legal tradition with all the advantages of studying law in the twenty-first century.
As well as a well-stocked library and a large and experienced team of tutors, Pembroke law students have access to:
The Slaughter and May Book Scheme which provides core text books to each student free of charge
The Blackstone Lectures given annually by a legal leader (in 2017 by the Rt Hon Dame Heather Carol Hallett DBE, in 2016 by Sir Keir Starmer MP, KCB, QC, and in 2015 by Lord Neuberger; President of the UK Supreme Court)
Pembroke's Annual High Achiever's Event which recognises undergraduate academic success
Study Skills Sessions which teach the techniques necessary for study of law
Mooting Competitions to develop legal skills in a practical context. (These are fictional cases argued by students, as if barristers.)
The following links give more information about life as a Pembroke law student, as well as some details of our admissions process, the College legal community and the legal activities that are unique to Pembroke.
