Module description

This module aims to consolidate and develop academic legal research skills and provides an opportunity for students to study an area of law not covered in the other modules on the Graduate Diploma in Legal Studies programme. Each student formulates a research project (based on a list of available topics and supervisers), subject to formal approval by the programme director. With a limited amount of individual supervision, the student produces a 3,500 word essay on the selected topic.
