Law at Clare
We are a friendly and supportive college and our students enjoy the best of all that Clare and Cambridge have to offer.
Law is a highly competitive career and academic success is vital. Clare lawyers have a record of truly outstanding results, in recent years 75% of our students have graduated with First Class Honours, and all of our students have graduated with a Starred First, First or an Upper Second Class degree. On numerous occasions a Clare law student has ranked top of the university class list. Our students have also received a vast array of university and college prizes.
All our students are members of the Clare Law Society which organises a wide variety of events throughout the academic year including termly law dinners with members of the profession.
We are perhaps the only College to benefit from two specialist law libraries. The Turpin and the Lipstein reading rooms offer a wealth of resources and an environment for both quiet study and lively debates.
Following graduation a significant number of our students have been successful in obtaining highly competitive scholarships for postgraduate programmes at leading institutions in the UK and in the United States. Perhaps a testament to the academic community at Clare is that many of our students elect to remain with us for the LLM programme.
Beyond Clare our law students are at the forefront of the legal profession and can be found at most leading law firms and chambers. Our alumni retain close links with the College and regularly participate in Clare events with our current students
