Participants at our study days attend talks and workshops led by tutors, find out more about the course at Oxford and what tutors are looking for, and meet current St John's students. We often issue some preparatory reading in advance of our study days which will then form the basis of the seminars.
The purpose of our Law Study Day is to introduce students to the academic study of law and to offer an insight into how the course is taught at Oxford. Participants will take part in academic workshops covering public law and private law, led by Law tutors from St John’s College. There will also be an opportunity to meet current students and to find out more about the application process.
The event is appropriate for students who have an interest in the study of legal problems and who will enjoy an academically challenging programme. An interest in the academic study of the law is more important than legal career aspirations. There will be reading to complete in preparation for this event.

There are 32 places available on the day. The College may consider information such as GCSE results, predicted A level results (or equivalent) to choose students who will best benefit from the event. Students should be predicted to achieve at least AAA at A level (or equivalent). No specific subject combinations are required. Places are generally limited to one per school/college although larger establishments may be offered more places.
