This programme recognises the need to provide an academically challenging degree which will give you a sound knowledge of legal concepts together with an understanding of the operation of law in society. "I was [treated as] a valued student with talent and capabilities. This was only achieved by the outstanding academic teaching and support provided by my lecturers. It has provided me with a solid foundation and now my opportunities are endless." Saanya Khan, 1st Class Honours Learning Methods The programme employs a blended learning strategy where attendance in lectures, workshops and seminars is supported by a comprehensive e-learning portal, Moodle. The resources on Moodle include links to websites, our e-databases, electronic books and tutor/ librarian produced materials. There are sections for each module of study which focus on specific module content, including a module handbook with assessment details, reading lists, workshop and seminar tasks. Each module is divided into a weekly breakdown of materials and specific resources. The online resources may include lecture Power point lectures, hand-outs, television programmes, web links, video clips, Multiple choice quizzes and other materials. Written assessments are submitted to Moodle and the submission goes through Turnitin (plagiarism detection software). Our primary intention is not to use Turnitin as a punitive tool but as part of the learning process. To that end, you can submit and re-submit your work to Turnitin as many times as you wish prior to the end submission date, and through this process you may identify referencing points that require rectification. All tutors have access to Skype and this can be utilised inside and outside of the classroom. You may use this tool to have discussions with us throughout the year. Both Skype and Moodle also have messaging tools to assist communication to students, either as a group or to individuals. Teaching Methods Teaching will be delivered through a combination of Lectures, Workshops and Seminars. Lectures will be interactive, with question and answer sessions and other forms of student involvement. Workshops are designed to enhance individual learning in relation to a common end task [the set seminar task(s)], which will then be explored in further detail with the tutor in the seminar. The individualised workshops may have you practicing timed essays, whilst others are involved in peer discussion and support. Alternatively, they may be based on last minute preparation, viewing resources on the e- learning portal or even test their knowledge with multiple choice questions (MCQs). In the workshop, the onus is on you to identify your own learning requirements. *PLEASE NOTE - THIS PROGRAMME IS UNDERGOING PERIODIC REVIEW/REAPPROVAL IN THE 2019-20 ACADEMIC YEAR FOR DELIVERY FROM 2020-21. Periodic Review is a monitoring and review activity undertaken by all universities/colleges delivering HE programmes. Any changes to the existing programmes as a result of this process will be fully communicated to all applicants as soon as possible after conclusion of the reviews.
