Public Policy Group Past Events


2017 Events

Somerville’s newest alumni network, the Public Policy Network, has now launched. The first event was a speaker meeting in October at the Oxford and Cambridge Club on the intensely topical subject of “the challenges and practicalities of exiting the EU: a lawyer’s perspective”, sagely and entertainingly delivered by our own Professor Stephen Weatherill.

The group’s aims are: to provide a forum for  Somervillians at all levels across the Civil Service and others with expertise and interest in public policy to meet; to organise a programme of events, serious and fun, on this theme, to inform, stimulate discussion and provide opportunities for networking and mutual support; to advise and encourage undergraduates considering a career in the Civil Service.

We are aiming to hold events in London and in Oxford.  The founders are currently looking for more people to join the organising committee.
