Studying Law at Clare

As you may know by the time you read this, there is no such thing as the 'Law Course at Clare'. Clare lawyers, in common with all other Law undergraduates in Cambridge, attend university lectures and take university examinations. So why choose Clare for Law?

First and foremost, Clare lawyers have a record of excellent results in the Law Tripos, in recent years up to 75% of our students have graduated with First Class Honours, and all of our students have graduated with a First or an Upper Second Class degree. The Law Fellows at Clare encourage their students to adopt a broad and critical approach to the study of legal subjects. We think that it is not enough to learn what the law is: students also need to know why it is like that and whether and how it might be changed. In other words, we aim to place the law in its broader social, historical, economic and political context. We are a friendly and supportive college and our students enjoy the best of all that Cambridge has to offer. Explore the links below to discover more...
