Programme specification:

The programme diversifies the assessment methods across the compulsory modules, enhancing the study skills aspect of the programme to an extent which will mark it out as distinct from many competitor institutions. The focus on the theoretical underpinning to the law running throughout the degree will ensure the programme remains distinct from more practice-based degrees. The intention of the programme is to produce outstanding graduates prepared for the practical aspects of the professional world of work, as well as being able to engage with many aspects of the law at a critical level.
