Summit Venue: Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre, St Cross Building

University of Oxford

Oxford University, an ancient centre of learning, remains at the very top of world universities for its research, its teaching, and its engagement in public policy. It is a collegiate university, with thirty-eight colleges, each an independent institution, which together constitute the university.

Faculty of Law

The Faculty of Law maintains a position of pre-eminence for its teaching and research, drawing scholars and students from around the world. The Faculty is international in outlook and has a long record of educating students who go on to achieve high office in politics, legal practice, and public and international affairs. Its renowned strength in legal philosophy is matched by equal eminence in a range of other subjects. 

Home to the Faculty of Law, the St Cross Building is a Grade II listed modernist building designed by Sir John Leslie Martin and Colin St John Wilson (known for the Royal Festival Hall and the British Library, respectively) and built between 1960 and 1964.

The Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre is in the St Cross Building on St Cross Road, just to the north-east of the Oxford city centre, on the corner of St Cross Road and Manor Road, opposite Holywell Manor. The postcode is OX1 3UL.  You can find here maps of Oxford showing the Law Faculty (#25).
