    How do you study?
    A range of teaching and learning methods will be employed as appropriate to each module and aims to enhance contextualised skills of research and writing. The methods employed include lectures, seminars and workshops. The seminars allow you to examine topics in-depth through the discussion of papers presented during seminars. Although the primary focus is on individual independent study you may have an opportunity to work in groups within seminars.

    With the exception of the dissertation and the Legal Research and Writing module, which is assessed by the submission of a research proposal, the modules for the LLM programmes are assessed by means of a 4,000 word piece of work. These could be discursive essays, reports, case studies or problem scenarios.
