This course is ideal for those students who want to engage in a critical analysis of a range of legal subjects. The course has proved particularly attractive to those holding senior positions in NGOs, international institutions, government and industry, who see this as a means of analysing the way in which the law impacts their work.
The course includes core modules such as Legal Research Methods and a dissertation. There are also several optional modules including; Commercial Law, Employment Law, Global Intellectual Property Rights, International Criminal Law, Private and Public International Law, and the Law and Practice of International Trade.
All of the modules offered start with introductory lectures. Students are then encouraged to engage in academic discourse through the analysis of cases, journal articles and research papers in seminars. Student achievement is assessed through coursework in the form of problem solving exercises, essays, seminar papers and on-line discussion.
Graduates on the course have used the dissertation as an opportunity to research an area that is beneficial to their government or employer. Examples of dissertations undertaken include: ‘The way in which health and safety laws impact on industrial chemical industries’, ‘The adoption of laws to counteract money laundering in emerging economies’ and ‘The establishment of intellectual property law enforcement to enable a country to adhere to its obligations to the World Trade Organisation (WTO)’.
The course also provides an ideal foundation for those intending to pursue PhDs.
