Teaching and assessment

for Law (Eng/NI) LLB (Hons)

Date of entry

September 2020

Teaching

We place a strong emphasis 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.

Assessment

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