Cambridge law interview/testWatch this thread
For the Cambridge Law Test
- Prepare essays beforehand by reading up on jurisprudence and philosophy of law issues (law and morality etc)
- There are a few incredibly helpful books out there such as Learning the Law by Williams and Law: A very short introduction. Both helped me so much.
For the interview:
- Watch the mock interview on youtube
- Read up on landmark UK court decisions. One of the problem questions in my interview was actually based on a case I had read beforehand.
- Watch the Justice lecture series at Harvard (also on youtube)
Law test: The BA Law website has a few sample test questions, it would be good to go through them and plan a few of them. I used the LNAT essay resources as well to see a general example of a model essay. Read up on some current affairs (esp landmark law cases) to support your answer.
Interview: Try to read up on basic law principles like natural law and jurisprudence etc etc (I quickly skimmed through wikipedia the night before). I found that reading the law section on OUP's blog was incredibly helpful in terms of knowing current legal issues and problems. The interview is incredibly academic and intense so do be mentally prepared to be probed and questioned about your stand on certain issues. Use what they provide you during the interview itself to support your answer.
