In Year Three students may choose from a range of optional subjects based on the research and/or teaching interests of teaching staff. The School offers a wide range of optional modules, full details of which are on our website. The range is sufficiently wide to enable students to specialise in one aspect of law, if they choose, or to mix options from across the curriculum.
