Legal Community

Those coming to Cambridge to take the MCL course benefit not only from the substantive content of the course but also from proximity to London and its various world-class law firms. London is one of the world’s pre-eminent legal centres and constitutes a key hub in what increasingly functions as a global market for legal services.

The MCL programme has a Practitioners Advisory Board, comprised of distinguished practitioners with considerable corporate law expertise. The Board offers valuable input for the MCL in general. In addition, many of its members are directly involved in the MCL's Deals Course and MCL-related extracurricular events.

The Law Faculty collaborates closely with the Cambridge University Careers Service to provide guidance and contacts to law firms based in London and elsewhere. The Careers Service assists Cambridge students with CV writing, interview preparation, networking skills and other activities designed to assist with career presentation and skills acquisition. The Careers Service also helps to provide students with opportunities to meet potential employers, including organising the annual Cambridge Law Fair, where numerous law firms provide information about themselves and discuss potential career opportunities. An equivalent event for barristers is also held each year.
