Course Introduction

Taught by legal experts, this is an opportunity for LPC graduates to extend their research further in an area of interest within legal practice, through a research module and a dissertation. Students learn to apply academic understanding and research techniques to the analysis of law, policy and practice within their chosen area. We also help students to produce analytical, creative and original research that demonstrates the relationships between substantive law, policy, socio'economic context and legal practice. We find students appropriately linked vocational activity during their degree. We are fortunate to have a full time placement and employability officer dedicated to Law students. The course consists of a taught research module (taken in the autumn), consisting of lectures and workshops; and a supervised 12000'15000 word dissertation (taken in spring/summer).
