If there are any , what are the biggest or even small intricate differences between applying for Law at oxford or Cambridge . What would Cambridge prefer too see in the PS and is oxford more abstract/philosophical in their approach to Law ?

Any replies appreciated thanks

Probably their strictness in GCSE as Cambridge is more lenient. Also their course modules will be different like Roman law is compulsory I think at Oxford while Cambridge is optional or doesnt include it (not sure). In my opinion, Oxford is more theoretical law while Cambridge is more historical. Cambridge has the CLT, which has the problem questions, while Oxford has LNAT, which you pay for and hasn't got the problem questions but has comprehensive and essay questions CLT has. I dont know how they weigh the PS tbh

Cambridge would like to see evidence of a genuine and informed interest in studying law, like every other university. It would also like you to highlight the skills (and what you've done to develop these) that make you especially apt to studying law.

No, Oxford isn't more 'abstract' in their approach to law, whatever that means.

No it's problem, comprehensive and essay. Here's a link that gives you a better understanding of what I've said: https://www.thelawyerportal.com/free...idge-law-test/

I think they might have updated it or something ? Check the official Cambridge website and click on the law course and have a look at the description for the CLT it says specifically 1 essay question for a duration of 60 mins . Not any additional problem solving for 2 hours

Yeah as of last year at least the CLT was just one essay question. Perhaps it's changed though.
