Construction Law Summer School
Monday 9 - Friday 13 September 2024
Downing CollegeCambridge, UK

Networking Opportunities

Networking at the Construction Law Summer School

As well as being a fantastic learning opportunity, the Construction Law Summer School is also a chance to make lasting connections with other young professionals from across the world.

There are chances to network throughout the day, and each evening you can relax in the company of your colleagues with our nightly activities that take in the sights of historic Cambridge and give you a taste of student life at the college. 

Networking Breaks

Our regular breaks throughout the summer school provide an opportunity to discuss the course with your fellow attendees alongside refreshments.

Gala Dinner

On Wednesday, enjoy a gala dinner in Downing College's historic main dining hall by candlelight. Formal dress/black tie is encouraged!


The River Cam runs past many of the oldest colleges in Cambridge. Get a riverside view of King's College Chapel, the Wren Library and the Bridge of Sighs.  

Pub Quiz

Teams of delegates and speakers pit themselves against each other in our pub quiz. A British tradition and the bar will of course be open. A great way to get to know everyone at the start of the week.

Tour of Historic Cambridge

This walking tour of Cambridge led by expert guides will help you unravel the historic past of this university town. From the Corpus Clock to Watson & Crick; from strange traditions around St Mary's Church to the mysteries of how students got a car on top of Senate House!

College Bar

Open during the Monday BBQ & Quiz, as well as Thursday before the gala dinner, the college bar serves a wide range of both soft and alcoholic beverages (not included in the ticket price. Card only, no cash). And if that isn't enough for you, you can always ask our team about the Cambridge nightlife!
