LMH, with it’s Law library, Law Society and highly qualified Law Tutors is the perfect place to study the subject. As a Law student on the Foundation Year you will be taught in small tutorial groups of one or two students. During the first term of the Law Foundation Year course, students will look at an Introduction to the UK Legal System. In Hilary Term (second term), students will look at the Foundations of the Legal System, whilst in trinity Term (third term), students will look at the Functions of Law.

Entry requirements

Candidates for the Foundation Year law course should achieve at least ABB in their A-Levels.

I joined Lady Margaret Hall as Fellow and Tutor in September 2016. This followed five years as senior lecturer at Lund University, Sweden. I read law at King’s College London and Passau Universität (LLB with German Law), and Collège d’Europe (LLM) before completing a DPhil at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. I held visiting research positions at the Max Planck Institute for Collective Goods; the New York University School of Law; the University of New South Wales and the UC Berkeley School of Law.

Before this I was a professor of private law at the University of Cape Town, where I trained as a lawyer (and before that, a classicist) in the 1990s. Between 2005 and 2009 I was a tutorial fellow at St Catherine's College, Oxford; I was also a visiting professor at the Université Panthéon-Assas (Paris II) for six years until 2014.
