Oxford Summer College is a two week university preparation course run by Varsity Education held in the heart of Oxford. The English Law programme is designed to give students an insight into undergraduate jurisprudence – the theory and the study of law. Students primarily focus on Constitutional Law and Criminal Law and dissect the general principles of each topic through group debate. An example of this would be whether freedom of expression is a fundamental or constitutional principle. Furthermore, students work with real cases to inform discussion and work through a criminal law mooting problem as a class.
Topics include:
o An introduction to constitutional law
o Political and legal constitutions
o The rule of law
o Freedom of expression
o Introduction to criminal law

Oxford Summer College is to be held at Somerville College, Oxford.
