Our teaching is informed by actual practice and our modules reflect real-life trends. You will receive approximately 12 hours of formal teaching a week, ranging from the traditional large-group lecture to more clinical legal education and online simulations. Lectures serve as a basic introduction to subjects and are intended to provide the framework to enable you to carry out further in-depth study. You will also have tutorials, which take place in smaller groups to provide a forum for more detailed discussion and debate on assignments that you will have prepared in advance. In addition to these contact hours you will be expected to undertake a substantial amount of private study.
We have an active Student Law Society, with activities that include mooting and debating in our state-of-the-art Moot Court. The Law Society have previously entered national competitions.
The course is delivered on a full-time basis, so you will study six modules a year for two years. If you would prefer to study part-time, you will complete four modules a year for three years. A number of part-time study options are available, providing an attractive alternative for anyone interested in the legal field.
Law lecturers engage in a variety of research activities which result in the presentation of papers at conferences, the publication of journal articles and textbooks. All our areas of research feed directly into your studies, so you will benefit from a cutting-edge curriculum that is taught by staff who are at the forefront of their subject area.
Assessments include self, peer and tutor assessment, written coursework, portfolio, written exercises, in-class work, and examinations.
