Law & Law with Law Studies in Europe

Why Catz?

  • St Catherine's has a vibrant legal community attributable in part to the fact that admits a greater number of students to study the subject in comparison with other colleges. With an annual intake of approximately 10 undergraduates and as many graduates, it is a diverse community comprised of over 40 students of different ages from all over the world united by a common interest in the study of Law.
  • Unusually, St Catherine's has three permanent law fellows (Paul Davies, Andrew Dickinson and Justine Pila) who teach and research in different, complementary areas.
  • At Catz we aim to provide a rigorous and supportive academic environment in which Law Fellows are accessible to students for help with any academic or non-academic issue at all times. We have a strong record of examination results and support our high-achieving students with academic scholarships and exhibitions.
  • We also have a well-resourced and accessible Law Library that is constantly being updated and expanded, and are the closest of the colleges to the Law Faculty and Bodleian Law Library, where Faculty lectures and seminars are held and materials not available in the College Law Library can be found.
  • Reflecting the interests of its Fellows, Catz Law is closely involved with the Institute of European and Comparative Law (IECL), and is also the host of several moots. It hosts the Law Faculty/IECL's academic exchange with the Max Planck Institute as well as the Shearman and Stearling Moot and the French Law Moot. It also regularly hosts distinguished academics from other universities, including (as recent Christensen and Visiting Fellows) Professor Denis Baranger from Paris II (Université Panthéon-Assas), Professor Rochelle Dreyfuss from NYU School of Law, and Professor Ansgar Ohly from the University of Munich.

Number of places usually available at St Catherine's: 10
