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'll 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.

The Law Clinic

Our Law Clinic allows you to put theory into practice. As part of your degree, you'll work in our Law Clinic advising members of the public in conjunction with local organisations, including the Citizens Advice Bureau and Girlington Advice Centre.

The Law Clinic provides free comprehensive legal advice to members of the public. Family matters, relationship breakdown, divorce, employment issues, civil disputes and neighbour disputes are all within the scope of the Clinic. Working in a team, you'll discuss the case and decide whether the client needs legal advice. Under the guidance of the Clinic Director, you'll then prepare advice for your client.


You'll have opportunities to undertake work experience and work placements with law firms and legal organisations in the region. These include:

  • two-week work-experiences
  • six-week summer work experience through the University’s summer work-experience programme
  • year-long placements if you're enrolled on a programme that incorporates a sandwich year in industry
  • other work experience scheduled around your timetable and an organisation's need for support

The School has placement opportunities open exclusively to students of the University through its collaboration with the School’s partners.

Study support

You'll be allocated a Personal Academic Tutor, who will provide you with personal guidance and support.

Module leaders and tutors are accessible, providing office hours and appointments in order to support your learning beyond class contact.

The use of a virtual learning environment as part of the programme further enhances the accessibility of your teaching team, enabling you to interact when you are off-campus.

The Effective Learning Service (ELS) is a dedicated facility within the Faculty of Management, Law and Social Sciences, established to support our students to maximise their academic learning (e.g assignments and examinations) as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.

The ELS provides a huge range of services, including various workshops run during term time, 1-1 consultations and vast printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.

These are in addition to the wide range of students support that are offered by the University of Bradford at the City Campus.


Many of your teaching staff are research active.

You will benefit from research informed teaching, and have the opportunity to develop and use practical research skills and gain understanding of research methodologies.
