Module overview

This module is designed to develop the intellectual, practical and transferable skills needed to study law generally, and to allow you to see how these skills can be employed in legal practice. It builds on the legal knowledge acquired in the first semester and considers how some of these legal rules and principles are utilised in practice to determine various types of legal dispute. It particular, it develops your key skills in legal research and argumentation by asking you to regularly advise 'clients' on a variety of fictional scenarios which raise multiple legal issues that often intersect a number of discrete areas of law.
