This module provides an opportunity for a final year student to undertake a substantial piece of legal research on a topic of his or her choice. Students will be working under the supervision of a member of the School of Law staff. The module is assessed on the basis of 3 elements: a written project project, a reflective statement, and an oral presentation.
The aims of the module are:
- To enable the student to pursue a research project on a legally related topic of interest;
- To encourage independent research;
- To encourage students to plan and manage their own projects;
- To encourage communication of ideas through a medium appropriate to a given project.
There are two variants in this module: the 30-credit, Full Year version which runs from the Autumn until the Summer Term (LW304-6-FY) and the 15-credit version that runs from the Spring until the Summer Term (LW304-6-SP).
Both versions of the module (30-credits and 15-credits) are assessed on the basis of written work (i.e. (1) a project, and (2) a reflective statement) and (3) an oral presentation.
