The Faculty is committed to giving any student who is bright and dedicated the opportunity to study Law, regardless of their background. To further these goals, the Access Team works to ensure that all students understand what it means to study Law, what options are available to them, and how to put themselves in the best possible position to make a strong application.

Dr Dominic de Cogan is the Faculty Access Officer, assisting with admissions and outreach events to help bring the best and the brightest to the Faculty of Law, no matter their background.

Mrs Ali Lyons, our Schools Liaison Co-ordinator, is the Faculty’s first point of contact for students, teachers, and advisors interested in Law at Cambridge. You can arrange a group to visit the Faculty of Law or for a visitor to come to your school to speak on topics including:

  • Studying Law at Cambridge;
  • Career options following a degree in Law;
  • Applying to study Law;
  • Choosing a college.

Additionally, if you are organising an event such as a careers fair, subject taster day, or a teachers’ conference, you can contact Ali about involving the Faculty of Law in your event at outreach@law.cam.ac.uk.
