Teaching

We are very encouraging and supportive in our teaching.

A strong emphasis is placed on group teaching by qualified lawyers.

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 French modules in Levels 1 and 2 have four hours of tutorials each week. In Levels 3 and 4 this changes to two hours of language tutorial each week, plus 10 hours of lectures, seminars and screenings on French film, culture and society across the year.

Assessment

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.

Assessments for the French modules can consist of:

  • oral presentations and examinations
  • written assessments and examinations
  • grammar tests
  • listening tests
  • projects
