UCL Access to Justice Summer School
We are offering a free residential summer school to students from widening participation backgrounds from Monday 31st July - Friday 4th August (students will depart on the morning of the 5th). UCL will cover the costs of travel, meals, and five nights of accommodation at Ramsay Hall, a UCL Hall of Residence.
The objectives of the summer school are for students to:
- Gain valuable exposure to life at UCL and in the Faculty of Laws;
- View University and the study of law as a viable option for their future;
- Gain insight into the University application process;
- Learn more about the legal profession and the paths to becoming a lawyer in the UK;
- Develop a deeper understanding of human rights, citizenship and access to justice issues;
- Develop important skills such as public speaking, communication, team-working and legal research.
Our summer school is designed for students who may be interested in studying law at university or who are particularly interested in learning more about their legal rights and access to justice issues. One of the aims of UCL’s outreach work is to promote inclusion and achievement, and so we would especially invite applications from students who are the first generation of their family to consider applying to university or have been entitled to free school meals or in local authority care. The full list of criteria is available on the application form. Please note we will still consider students that do not meet the GCSE and A Level (or equivalent) requirements if they meet many or all of the widening participation criteria.
Students can apply online by completing the online application form found on the UCL CAJ Website:
There are a limited number of places on this course, and as such, this year we are only able to offer this course to students who are currently completing S5 and/or applying to university in Autumn 2017.
