If your UCAS application is successful, you will be invited to interview by the college that is handling your application. The number of interviews you are asked to attend, the length of the interviews, and the topics discussed will all vary from college to college. The interviews will usually be held early in December, and the college that invites you to interview will provide you with further details on the exact timing, location, and format of your interviews.
Queries regarding interviews should be directed to college admissions tutors.
You will not be required to have any prior knowledge of law for your interviews. The interviewers will be interested in your own ideas and thought processes, including your ability to form and defend a logical argument, to recognise counter arguments, and to explain any changes in your view in light of new information or new circumstances.
More information about the interview process at Cambridge is available on the University website.
An example Law interview
Louis, 1st year Law student
Try not to think of the interviews as a ‘them versus me’ situation... but more of a discussion - an opportunity to show the interviewers how you think and reason.
I genuinely enjoyed the interview, and was appreciative of the interviewers making me feel at home in what could have been a thoroughly stressful experience.
