Assessment method

The LLB Law with Criminology programme has been carefully designed to develop a wide range of academic, legal and practical skills via a varied portfolio of assessment methods.

A developing range of assessments will enable you to grow in confidence and demonstrate your acquisition of knowledge and skills. The assessment methods used across the course include:

Written assignments these may vary from essays and reports to more in-depth research work on broader topics. These assessments will test your ability to analyse an issue, to conduct research, to collect relevant materials, to assess the quality of the materials and to synthesise them into a scholarly answer.
Examinations: These will cover a range of multiple choice examinations through to in-class tests and essay-based exams. The aim of exams is to test your ability to convey your understanding of a topic and to demonstrate your skills of analysis and evaluation in a time sensitive manner.

Oral presentations that demonstrate verbal and presentational skills in communicating information to others. Moot presentations will test your ability to carry out research and present your findings in a persuasive and authoritative manner. They will also introduce the practical skills of court etiquette and procedure.

Problem questions and case studies will allow you to apply your legal or criminological knowledge to a real life scenario.

The Dissertation allowing you to undertake a complex research project and communicate knowledge, findings and recommendations, in your final year on the course

The assessments will develop incrementally across the course and allow you to gain skills and acquire knowledge, receive feedback and grow, thus allowing you to implement this knowledge and feedback into subsequent assessments.

At the end of the course completion of the assessments will demonstrate your ability to apply, analyse and evaluate current legal and criminological knowledge and communicate this, in both written and presentational formats. Thus you will be able to demonstrate a range of transferable skills relevant to your professional employability.
