The packed programme for the week-long summer school included classes covering various aspects of Law, such as family law; contract law; and and criminal. The seminars, taught by staff at UCL Laws, were designed to give the students a taste of the modules offered as part of the LLB programme.

Students also listened to talks on university life, wellbeing, living in London, and making their application to study at UCL Laws stand out. A highlight of the week was a visit to the Supreme Court, which highlighted the advantages of studying in the heart of legal London.

In the evenings, participants were given opportunities to socialise and explore London - including attending a West End play and taking a cruise along the River Thames.

The Laws Residential Summer School is part of a number of summer schools for students in year 12 attending state schools, run by UCL Access and Widening Participation. The Residential Summer Schools are eligible for students who show strong academic potential but come from backgrounds which are currently under-represented at university. The programme is free of charge for participating students and is designed to encourage them to raise their aspirations and give them an insight into UCL’s degree programmes and student life.
