Law is the bedrock of politics, economics, and international relations. In Britain in particular, the common law is intimately connected with culture and society through the centuries, and has travelled to all English-speaking countries and beyond. Its influence will continue to be felt even after the UK has left the European Union. The teaching of law has a long and distinguished history at Lincoln. The College has excellent connections with the profession. Our small intake of seven undergraduate students each year allows us to devote individual attention to each. As a result, our students’ exam success ranks persistently among the top group of Oxford colleges.
Prof. Stefan Enchelmaier, Fellow and Tutor in Law
Lincoln teaches a relatively small number of subjects in order to provide strength in depth to our students and to ensure that our Fellows can continue to pursue their own research. In most cases this means that we have two full-time, tenured Fellows per subject, and one career development Fellow.
Law has an eminent tradition at Lincoln, and former Fellows include Harold Hanbury, in whose name one of the current Fellowships is endowed. The provision includes two Tutorial Fellows, Professor Simon Gardner (Land Law and Trusts) and Professor Stefan Enchelmaier (Company Law and EU Law), and a career-development Fellow, Dr Barbara Havelkova, whose post is supported by the Shaw Foundation.
Challenges: We are seeking funds to endow the second Fellowship in Law in honour of Simon Gardner’s retirement. We have set a target of £2m to endow this post in perpetuity. A number of alumni have already expressed an interest in being involved in this campaign. Please contact the Development Office for further information.
