Oxford Program At A Glance

The 2023 Oxford Summer Program will run from July 2 to August 5. Students will reside, attend classes, and take meals at historic Trinity College. (tentative) Originally founded by the Catholic Church as a training center for priests in 1555, Trinity College became a pillar of the Anglican establishment in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and then a center of educational reform in the nineteenth century. Notable Trinity College alumni include William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham and Constantine Louloudis, 2016 Olympic Gold Medal rower.

Due to accreditation standards, students may enroll in 4 to 6 credit hours. Because financial aid providers typically require that student be enrolled in 5 credit hours to be considered full-time and receive aid, you may want to take that into account when picking classes.

The courses will be taught by American and English faculty and will be letter graded, with a final examination or equivalent work. Credit in all courses will be granted by the University of Oklahoma College of Law.

Classes will meet approximately 2 hours per day, per class, Monday through Thursday for 5 weeks (for 3-credit hour classes), leaving several long weekends for travel and sight-seeing.  When offered, 2-credit hour and 1-credit hour classes meet for 2 hours a day for fewer days.  In addition to our classes, the Program will also offer formal and informal activities for students and faculty. Scheduled program activities currently include a Champagne reception on the evening of arrival, a field trip by motor coach to "Legal London," and "High Table" dinners to open and close the program. These activities are included in the cost of the Program. 

The 2023 Program is tentatively limited to 45 students.

Housing and Meals

Most students will live in single or double, en suite rooms equipped with desks and Wi-Fi access. Trinity College has limited accommodations for couples. Students who wish to bring spouses, partners, or children must contact the Director to determine whether suitable accommodations are available. Spouses and others accompanying enrolled students must pay separately for meals and housing.  Students brining partners and/or families may need to secure their own housing in Oxford.

Provided meals include breakfast and dinner Monday through Wednesday, and breakfast on Thursday. Meals will be served in the recently renovated Trinity College Dining Hall

Occupants of Trinity College are subject to standards of conduct applicable to Trinity students. The privilege of residing at Trinity College may be terminated for misbehavior such as vandalism or trespassing into private areas of the College, plus any violation of law of Trinity College disciplinary rules.


Students will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from Oxford. As flights fill up early, students are urged to make arrangements for their travel as soon as possible.  As the worldwide pandemic continues as of the date of this website update, students should seek to book airfare and other pre-paid reservations where the costs are fully refundable. 

Special Assistance

England, Oxford, and Trinity College are accessible to individuals with disabilities. Any student with disabilities should submit documentation to the University of Oklahoma College of Law so that appropriate arrangements can be made. Students needing special assistance on examinations due to disabilities should contact the Director immediately.
