How you Learn
Cambridge University is federal, and the legal education we provide is no exception; lectures are offered in all papers and take place in the new Faculty buildings, located a short walk from the College and close to the University Library.
Supervisions – College-based, small group teaching – are given fortnightly in each paper: essays or problem questions may be set; questions may be brought to, or put by, the supervisor and, above all, intellectually interesting topics will be discussed. There is an element of rote learning in Law, but there will always be the opportunity at Trinity Hall to go beyond it.

All applicants for Law are required to take a written assessment at interview, if interviewed. Please see the Admissions Assessments page on the University website for further details.
Current Trinity Hall Law undergraduates are drawn from a wide variety of social and educational backgrounds and we hope to continue to attract a similar variety of applicants. All we ask is an inordinate amount of enthusiasm and the fervent desire to excel. And to excel not only in Law, although that is the first priority; we also welcome applicants interested in reading another subject for a year or two before (usually) or after (less commonly) two years of Law. There are plenty of resources available online to support Law applicants; one of particular note is the HE+ website.
Applications from those interested in deferred entry are also welcomed.
Finally, the College will support candidates who wish to apply to spend their third year studying at a European university (currently Poitiers, Regensburg, Utrecht or Madrid), although this option can only be pursued once actually studying Law at Cambridge.
If you have an interest in studying Law, then do not hesitate: we are interested in you. Why not come to one of our Open Days to find out more about the course and Law at the College?
