Faculty Taster Days - Hybrid 14/15 March (virtual Q&A on 16 March) - Sponsored by Clifford Chance

The 2021 Law Faculty Taster days (previously called open days) in March were moved entirely online and were a resounding success, with participants from all around the world. 

In 2022 we will provide a hybrid event with a limited number of in-person places available on 14 & 15th March. We will also provide a compressed virtual Q&A event on 16th March, which will be available to everyone. 

The Faculty Taster Days provide a full day’s programme, with everything from sessions on applications, interviews, the LNAT, mock lectures / tutorials by Law Faculty professors. Several Colleges also take part in the in-person day by providing tours and lunch in their impressive halls. Our own Law Faculty Ambassadors will be available throughout the days for casual discussions and to assist with directions, as well as participating in discussions about life as an Oxford law student.
