Course details

Modules

In your first year you will study the fundamentals of the legal system and develop the skills needed to become a successful Law student. In your second year you will build on your fundamental understanding by refining your knowledge. You will also have the opportunity to select an optional module based on an area of law that interests you. In your final year you will have greater freedom to specialise in your degree. The majority of your modules will be options, giving you the opportunity to tailor your degree around the area of law that most interests you.

For further information please see our website.

Assessment method

Teaching consists mainly of lectures and small group tutorials, with introductory subjects being workshop based. You will also engage in independent study.

In the tutorials, you will engage with the lecture subjects in depth and learn through pair/group work, student presentations, and debates. The tutorial is a good way to deepen your understanding of a subject, which will be brought to life through critical reflection on the content of the law. There are usually no more than eight students in each tutorial, giving you an opportunity to participate fully and have your voice heard. As the groups are small, you will get to know your tutors well during your studies.

With two lectures in each module per week and a tutorial once a fortnight, you will have approximately 12 contact hours a week whilst studying with us. The Law degree is research based, so you will spend lots of time engaged in self study or working in study groups.

We use web-based and electronic course materials to supplement traditional teaching methods and support student learning. There is easy access to computers both in the Law School itself and in the David Wilson Library next to the School. You will be able to access information about your courses and tutorials electronically.

Assessment methods include assessed essays and exams.
