Oh, I'm sure there will be more than enough shop talk over pints in the Fall. Briefly, however, my research is in the area of financial services regulation (forgive me, I'm a securities lawyer).

Cheers.

I'm Canadian & will be studying for the M.St (probably continuing on for the D.Phil) at Linacre. Hoping the faculty and the college will let me begin my studies in January (might need to have my gall bladder out before then) and so I hope to see you for pints in the Winter!

I had to have that done last Christmas! Could have wrecked my LLB. As for the MSt, what is your topic area/supervisor, and did you apply to Linacre as one of your 2 preferences?

I had put Linacre down as my second choice. My proposed supervisor is Mike McNair, topic is in legal history. Do you think they would let me begin the M.St in January, or would I have to ask to defer?

I think given its research and not a taught course there is a fair chance, though only they could say definitively. Given you have medical reasons though I am sure they will view the request sympathetically.

Thanks GRM. I hope I won't have to ask, but I have to wait and see; I'm having a gallstone removed later this month, hope all goes well and I get the green light from the doctors. Glad I'm not the only person to have been in this predicament!

It sounds like you'd have a shot. However, all you can really do is apply and wait like everyone else. Apply to Oxford, Cambridge and maybe a few of the London colleges. See how it goes. Good luck.

Anyways - back to topic! Not long to our first pint in Oxford! :-)

Hello all,

I have created a facebook group for incoming BCL/MJUR/Research students for 2008/2009. It is called 'Oxford Law Postgraduate Freshers 2008.' I am a second year DPhil who was one of the Law Board Reps in 2007/2008 and someone created one for us last year and it turned out to be an excellent resource! I am at Christ Church and have loved it!

May I suggest we all meet at the KINGS ARMS (really well known so you will get there easily) in the front room just to your right as you enter the door at a time a place best for you guys? When are most of you arriving?

I look forward to meeting you all and please do pass on the link to any incoming class members!

Thanks for creating the community . Great job.
Kings arms would be great, but was just wondering whether sitting out in the Turf would be a better option. Just a thought.
