Vision and Values Statement
This 10 credit programme is for professional with either a legal qualification or a qualification or experience in an area of relevance to the subjects they wish to study. It involves completing a single law module available in the Masters' programmes offered by the School.
Students are challenged to think more critically about the social, cultural and political dimensions of the law, as well as the technical aspects of its application.
We strive for a learning environment that encourages students to work individually or as part of a team, so they can develop their own and others' leadership, teamwork and communication skills.
To these ends, the programme makes intensive use of teaching, learning and assessment approaches such as small-group teaching, in-class presentation (individual and group) and academic writing.
1. Demonstrate specialised knowledge and understanding of module taken
2. Apply that knowledge and understanding in diverse environments
3. Communicate, appropriately, to different audiences
