Teaching and assessment

for Law (Scots and English Dual Qualifying) LLB (Hons)

Date of entry

September 2022

Teaching

With an intake of only around 150 at Level 1, we take a personal and supportive interest in our students. A strong emphasis is placed on staff accessibility and on small group teaching involving all our senior staff.

At Levels 1 and 2, teaching consists of a balance between lectures supported by small group teaching in tutorials and independent and group study.

At Levels 3 and 4 a greater proportion of coursework is conducted independently and classes take the form of seminar discussion.

A substantial part of coursework at Level 4 involves preparation of a dissertation, a substantial work of independent, but supervised and supported, research on a topic of your choice.

Assessment

The way you are assessed can vary between modules. We can use:

  • presentations to evaluate oral communication of reasoned legal argument and the 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 the comprehension and interpretation of legal sources such as Acts of Parliament or case reports.

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.
