No news may not be a bad news at this moment. I asked a few Cambridge LLM students who applied to PhD this year, none of them (as well as people who they knew had applied) heard any updates yet.

Many thanks, for your reply and time. It is reassuring to know that we are all on the same boat at this moment. I will certainly update this thread with updates once I receive any. The Postgraduate Applicants thread for Cambridge 2024 on the studentroom website is also buzzing with posts, but nobody seems to have any updates for the law PhD even on that forum. Scary to hear of applicants from other departments receiving interview calls when there seems to be radio silence insofar as the law department is concerned!

Oh I would worry about that too much - there was an incomplete sentence in mine so I dont think that a typo would have that big an impact! they do not interview everyone who gets an offer in the end. I have friends who didnt receive interviews invitation last year and still got their offer! Do not lose hope :)

Thanks for the kind update - could I please know what area of law your research deals with? Also, did you reach out to your potential supervisor previously or have an informal conversation with them prior to putting in your application?

My best wishes for your interview! :)

Congrats! So they are only sending out interview invitations 48hrs in advance? It seems like a very short preparation time. May I ask what area of law is your proposal on?

I am yet to receive an interview invite - does this mean that I'm looking at a potential rejection or is there a possibility of more invites going out? I left my supervisor column blank!

Hi! I didnt reach to my supervisor beforehand, nor had any informal discussion with them. I did put their name down, and I think that might speed up the process a little, since that means that your file gets sent directly to them rather than retained by the commission until they do find a suitable fit (which they might not find, or think it is too loose and asocciation etc).
