Course Summary

The overall aim of this programme – available outside of Oxford for the first time in 2019 – is to provide participants with an initial advantage as they start their journey towards becoming a lawyer. The focus of the course is on assessing and evaluating the role of Law in society whilst appreciating its foundations and the core theoretical values of the discipline.

Students will be introduced to multiple legal strands in the US, including Jurisprudence, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Tort Law. It will equip students with a strong set of logical and argumentative skills, alongside techniques that will enable them to construct convincing arguments both in essays and in oral debate.

Course Outcomes

What to expect from the Ivy League Experience

This course has been specifically designed to provide students with an insight into university life in the United States. Students will nominate both a major and a minor subject, and will spend two weeks building their knowledge and skills in their chosen subject areas.

Students will follow their major subject for 30 hours across each two-week session, and will follow their minor choice for ten-and-a-half hours per session.

In their major class, students will learn in a variety of styles, such as traditional classroom learning, interactive seminars and through debates and discussions with fellow students from around the world. Students can expect to have their views challenged and discuss different points of view, and can expect to leave with new insights and a refreshed ability to defend their own viewpoints.

For the minor classes, which will be more skills-based, students can expect to work in small groups and individually in order to solve a problem or bring an idea to life. In doing so, they will work on key attributes for future study and employment, including presentation skills, leadership, teambuilding, creative thinking and evaluating potential solutions.
