Undergraduate study

If you're academically ambitious, like to draw ideas together and critically analyse them, feel ready to be in an environment where you will learn to argue and debate your interpretation of legal ideas and process large amounts of material then Oxford Law may be for you.  We expect a lot from you as we teach you to tap into your skills for writing, questioning and analysis.

Open days

On 11th & 12 March, the Law faculty will open its doors to year 12 students nominated by their school for an in-person taster day. We will hold an online event on the 13th March. To find out more see the Taster day page

 In the meantime, we have plenty of online resources for you to explore.

Access and outreach work

Widening participation

To best serve all of society the legal profession needs a true diversity of thought. We are committed to widening our intake of students from all backgrounds and provide a network of support systems and outreach schemes to help those from low income backgrounds, first generation students and those from schools with a low history of progression to Oxford discover and apply to our courses.

National Admissions Test for Law


Law is a subject which is about strong reasoning and constructing arguments which are logical and have solid foundations. In time it also depends on knowledge and a body of information that you will gain at university and in your legal career. The LNAT (or national admissions tests for law) is a way of helping us identify an aptitude for law beyond A-levels or other school qualiļ¬cations. It requires no factual knowledge and requires no coaching. You only need the facts given to you in the text to construct reasoned arguments.
