Oxford University Press would like to thank all participants for the fantastic entries we received. We were extremely impressed with the high standard of entries this year, when we asked students to create a short film that each exploring the theme of ‘top tips for studying law’.
The winning films below were those judged to be the most creative, instructive and original entries, which encouraged law students to positively connect with studying law.
A big thank you to all the students who got involved, and the lecturers and law societies who gave their support throughout the competition. We hope that you all have lots of ideas in the pipeline for next years’ competition. Stay tuned to this website in early 2014 for details of the 7th Connecting with Law Short Film Competition.
How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Law
This video aims to educate, entertain and engage my fellow legal students by sharing some effective, hard-learned tricks that I’m convinced can help anyone who is struggling to improve their grades.
The 5 Senses to Studying Law
Ryleigh Bowman & Sam Lumb
University of Wollongong
Everyone has got them … but does everyone know how to use them? A light-hearted satire explaining how the five senses [sight, taste, smell, sound and touch] are all the tools you would ever need to study law. Simple hints and strategies that can help shape individual study plans make this film … “a sensible choice".
Song About Law
University of Wollongong
An original song that follows a day in the life of a law student. With references to (in)famous student idiosyncrasies – from solitaire in lectures to mid-range coffee addictions and Mi Goreng for dinner – this clip will educate, entertain and engage fellow law students through light-hearted story. The helpful and amusing study tips provide a fun commentary on the university experience, while references to familiar cases and well-known law subjects provide a level of appreciation and relatability specifically for law students..
Congratulations also go to our highly commended entries:
