Networking Opportunities

Networking at the IP Law Summer School

As well as being a fantastic learning opportunity, the IP Law Summer School is also a chance to make lasting connections with other young lawyers from across the world, and from both private practice and in-house. 

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 (and hopefully enjoy the sunshine) with your fellow attendees alongside refreshments. 

Gala Dinner

On Wednesday, enjoy a gala dinner in the historic college dining hall by candlelight. Formal dress/black tie is encouraged! 


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

Pub Quiz

Teams of delegates and speakers pit themselves against each other in our pub quiz. A British tradition and the college 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 guided 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 nightly, and run by the lovely Wendy, the college bar serves a wide range of soft and alcoholic beverages. (And if that isn't enough for you, you can always ask our team about the Cambridge nightlife!)
