Program 3 (Scholar): Law

Dates: Mon 7th August - Sun 20th August

Ages: 14 - 18

Price: £2995

The Law provides the framework which governs our individual and collective behaviour. Studying the Law is therefore not only an incredibly stimulating intellectual activity, but can provide real insight into the rules and guidelines which shape whole societies.

Whether convinced that you wish to be a Lawyer or just fascinated by legal questions and problems, the Reach Cambridge Law course will provide an ideal introduction to this enormously important discipline.

Our Law course offers a vibrant introduction to the study of Law, exploring a range of modules including criminal law, international law, human rights law and constitutional law. This academically rigorous course will be brought to life through the study of real cases, as well as providing the opportunity for students to work on the debating skills essential to any court room. This will allow students to develop invaluable skills in debating, public speaking, researching, presenting an argument, and working as part of a team.

There will be a focus on both UK and international law, as students are encouraged to think critically about legal issues facing the world in a twenty-first century, globalised society. In addition, there will be an opportunity to visit law courts and understand the range of career opportunities in the sector. This dynamic course will introduce students to both the academic complexities and the vocational opportunities of the subject.

 

All Reach Cambridge courses are open to students aged between 14-18 years old.

All courses are taught in English. In order to get the most out of the learning experience, students are advised to have a level of English conducive to understanding sophisticated academic language and to converse with other students and staff in English at all times.

We do offer English as Second Language courses if you, or we, feel that this is more appropriate. Your personal statement will help indicate to us your level of English. We will also ask for a copy of your latest school transcript to help us assess the teaching level of the courses.

Such an interesting and intellectually stimulating course! The teachers were amazing and I made friends for life.

Helena, Law Student, 2016

I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend my holidays. I have learnt so much not only about Law, but also about myself.

I learned a lot of new things and everything was taught in a friendly and fun environment.

Reach Cambridge has been one of the best experiences of my life. Not only have I been able to learn about the subject I want to study in university, but I have also been able to meet amazing people from all around the globe.

Overall it was the best experience ever. The teachers were fun and amazing people, and I wouldn’t have first wanted to study Law anywhere else!

Community Outreach (£150)

Reach Cambridge is proud of its excellent links with UK based charities. Through this exciting add-on you could earn 10 community outreach hours, learn valuable skills in teamwork and project management, and take part in a project that really makes a difference. In 2014 Reach Cambridge worked with SABRE, a charity that helps build schools for children in rural Ghana. Community outreach students organised some excellent events and we raised over £2400 for the charity! This add-on takes place outside of class time across the course.


University Advance (£250)

One reason why you might join us in Cambridge is an interest in applying to university in one of the cities we visit. The university advance add-on will involve one day trip, either to the colleges of Oxford or to London universities (for example University College London, Imperial College, and the London School of Economics). Reach Cambridge will organise an accompanied tour of the university buildings and facilities, giving you the opportunity to explore your prospective campuses! Please note that this add-on will require you to miss one full day of classes.


Single Room Guarantee (£395)

Typically, students on Reach Cambridge share a room with someone of the same gender and a similar age. Whilst many find this to be a great way to make a lifelong friend, we understand that some people enjoy their personal space after a long day of exciting classes and activities. As such, we offer the single room upgrade, which guarantees that you will have your own private room.
