Lectures may be interactive and are designed to stimulate thinking and facilitate understanding. Seminars are small-group discussions which students will need to prepare for in advance. Suring seminars students learn to analyse legal principles and apply them to practical situations, assess competing arguments and choose between alternative approaches. Workshops are used to enhance a range of skills and focus on specific areas of expertise. Group work and moots (pretend courts) will hone students’ verbal arguing and presentation skills.
The programme will also teach students to engage in legal research, and to review information from academic sources, journals and electronic resources. As they progress, students will have the opportunity to do their own research into an aspect of law which the course has not covered. The programme also includes careers events and talks by guest speakers from the legal profession.
