The purpose of the Law Foundation is to promote and develop the study, whether at the University or elsewhere, by staff of the University, by those holding visiting appointments at the University and by students pursuing courses of or approved by the University, of the theory and practice of law in all its branches.

The Trustees meet annually in Oxford at around the start of the academic year, to consider proposals for funding and monitor the financial position of the fund.  The Trustees will support items of expenditure that are both exceptional and will add value to the whole of Law in Oxford. 

Proposals to the Law Foundation must be made on the recommendation of the Law Board, having first been considered by the Faculty’s Planning and Resources Committee.

The Trustees for 2016-17 are:

Graham White (Chair)

David P. Ryan

Andrew Mackie (representing the Vice-Chancellor)

Edwin Peel

Anne Davies, ex officio as Dean of the Faculty of Law

Paul Craigex officio as Associate Dean of Development and Communications for the Faculty of Law
