Modules

The core Year One and Year Two modules are made up largely of some of the modules that must be studied and passed in order to gain a Qualifying Law Degree, known as the ‘Foundations of Legal Knowledge’. The remaining modules are undertaken to enhance basic study, research skills, and advanced research skills in a social context. 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. The modules leaders are generally leading researchers in their field, enabling students to benefit from the latest developments in the law.
