Richard Fentiman: Welcome to the Faculty

Professor Richard Fentiman

I am delighted that you are considering applying for Law at Cambridge.

The Law course at Cambridge is designed to enable our students to achieve their academic and personal potential.

We are passionate about teaching our students well, and about helping them to develop a deep understanding and appreciation of the pivotal position of law in a civilised society. Our students are encouraged to develop strong analytical, critical thinking, evaluation and communication skills, and a capacity for independent learning.

We use a range of teaching methods, including interactive teaching in the small group supervision system that is a key part of our approach, to give our students an unrivalled learning experience.

I hope you will find the information in this website helpful and that it will confirm your decision that Law at Cambridge is the right choice for you.

Professor Richard Fentiman, Chair of the Faculty of Law
