Learning and assessment

Most modules use a mixture of interactive lectures, tutorials and seminars.

Students need to do independent study as part of all modules. We’ll support you through this with reading lists, suggested resources and our Virtual Learning Environment.

You will have regular contact hours and informal feedback from your tutors throughout the course.

Assessments are a mix of coursework assessments and formal examinations, held at the end of each semester.

Students should be aware that the SQE is assessed independently. Students will sit these exams in one of the designated centres in England and Wales.

Throughout your studies, you will benefit from one of the law school’s personal learning coaches who will support your SQE studies and work in our Law Clinic.

You will also gain invaluable work experience in our Law Clinic that will contribute to the two-year Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) needed to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales.

You will also enjoy a rich variety of extra-curricular activities and opportunities. These include participation in mock trials and moots in our Lady Hale Court Room facility, opened by Baroness Hale of Richmond in January 2020.

You can also take advantage of volunteering opportunities with advice organisations and within the University, court visits, external speakers, and social and law-related events organised by our thriving Student Law Society.

Supported by our dedicated colleagues in the Careers Service, you will have the chance to obtain career mentoring and work experience through our links to our regional legal, business, and not-for-profit communities.
