I sent a copy to one of my lecturers (who also studied the BCL) and he said it was good enough for application, so who knows?

Can I ask, what are your academics like? Did you study at a RG university and where did you rank in your cohort?

Just the Oxford BCL, I'm also applying for the Bar Course and scholarships in case. I'm in my third year at a RG, ranked 1st in my cohort in second year and 5th in my first year. What about your academics?

What topic was your essay?

Nice! Which Inn have you applied to? I studied at a non-RG university but graduated first in my cohort.

I submitted an extract of my essay on whether prostitution should be criminalised (with reference to Kant and Hume's moral legal theories). What about you?

Lincoln's! Are you also applying for scholarships?

Don't worry about your uni, I've heard Oxford don't really care about your university, and graduating first is an incredible achievement, I hope you're proud!

I'll be submitting an extract on whether medical malpractice ought to be regulated by the criminal law - it was all ethics, but I'm hoping that's okay!

Sorry! I must have missed your message. :frown: No, I'm not applying for BTC scholarships/funding this year (as I'll be doing the LLM/BCL next year) but I will apply next November for the following year.

Thanks so much. I know the competition is fierce so I'm not holding out too much hope lol.

Your topic sounds great - fingers crossed you get an offer early next year!
Have any of you received BCL offers for 2023-24 yet?
