We have three Cambridge Law Test practice papers. Written by our expert consultants, our practice papers replicate the style, format and timing of the real examinations, giving you the chance to practise your approach to the test as well as the skills required.

Each practice paper includes a set of model answers with detailed commentary on how to crack individual questions.

Our practice papers are different from those provided at our one-day Admissions Test Seminars, giving you further opportunities to prepare in your own home and well in advance of the real examinations. Please note that if you have attended one of our in-school courses, then you may have already have sat mock test I. If you are unsure whether you have already sat one of our tests at an in-school course, give us a ring on +44 (0)207 499 2394.

WHAT DOES THE Cambridge Law Test INVOLVE?

You will be given a choice of three types of question. The problem question requires you to apply a section of statute or a judgment; the comprehension involves analysis of a extract from a judgment or article, and the essay question requires evaluation of a legal opinion. A few colleges may restrict your choice of question, so ensure you check carefully. 

All criminal penalties should be fixed by statute. The exercise of discretion in sentencing requires an exercise of moral judgment by the judge, and judges in a modern democracy should not be allowed to exercise moral authority over their fellow citizens.
