What else distinguishes Law at Clare?

Clare College is set on the river, within a few minutes walk of the town centre, University Library, Faculty of Law and Squire Law Library. Thus everything that you will need during your time as a law student is at hand at Clare.

In addition to being minutes away from the Faculty of Law’s outstanding library and next door to the University Library, we also have two Law Reading Rooms in Clare (called the Lipstein Law Reading Room and the Turpin Law Reading Room). These are probably the best such facilities in Cambridge. They include a computer section. The reading rooms are very well stocked with student text-books, law reports and periodicals. In one of the two law reading rooms, Law students at Clare often enjoy lively discussion on legal topics! If the weather is nice then the beautiful Clare gardens are available.

Other students within Clare and Law students in other colleges would also recognise that Clare lawyers have a good social life.  We hold regular lively parties, at the beginning of the academic year, at Christmas, in the Lent Term, and in May Week. We also have an Annual Dinner with a visiting speaker (usually a leading judge or practitioner). In recent years, a number of Clare lawyers have been involved as office-holders in the University Law Society, and have been very active in organising events. There has also been a healthy tradition of participation in University Mooting competitions.
