This appeal will support the work of our student-run Cambridge Sixth Form Law Conference. By funding bursaries to the Conference for students from non-privileged backgrounds, the Conference’s organising committee aims to broaden and increase the applications we receive to study law at Cambridge.

The Conference, which is entering its 42nd year, is organised by a committee of eight law undergraduates, and supported financially and logistically by the Faculty of Law. It allows 250 Year 12 students to come to Cambridge for four days, stay in undergraduate accommodation and gain an unparalleled insight into the law, both as an academic discipline and as a career. Delegates attend lectures delivered by members of the Faculty, evening entertainments such as a debate and a mock trial, and take part in interactive workshops hosted by City law firms.

Monies donated to this fund will be used for individual student bursaries for the Conference, enabling a wider group of potential applicants to have a taste of studying law at Cambridge and contributing towards our mission to recruit the brightest, irrespective of personal circumstance.

The Conference works closely in partnership with the Faculty's widening participation programme
