At Levels 1 and 2, teaching is done by lectures, tutorials and independent and group study.

At Levels 3 and 4 you will work more independently and take part in seminar discussions.

Level 4 you will work on your dissertation which is independent, but supervised, on an elective topic.


The form of assessment varies between modules. We use:

  • presentations - to evaluate reasoned legal argument and your ability to work effectively as part of a team
  • moots - to assess court room manner and the ability to argue interactively
  • essay or drafting exercises
  • tests on comprehension and interpretation of legal sources such as Acts of Parliament or case reports.

In no module does assessment depend solely on a final exam.

A small number of modules are continuously assessed.

In the majority of modules the weighting of assessment is 25% for coursework and 75% for the final assessment.
