Law

Course Overview

The Law course at Cambridge offers a deep appreciation of the working of legal rules and institutions – much deeper than is obtainable from purely vocational training or from many other law degrees. Students have the opportunity to study Law in its historical and social context, and to examine its general principles and techniques. The course addresses a diverse range of legal issues, from problems of interpretation and logical reasoning to broader questions of civil liberties, ethics and social control.
