You will study a compulsory module, Research Methods, to develop your postgraduate-level research skills. Other core modules include Rights, Obligations and Remedies, designed to allow you to develop a detailed understanding and appreciation of the role of the civil law. You will also undertake a dissertation concerning law or law-related issues.
You will have a choice of optional modules, covering a range of specialist areas, to complement your core studies and allow you to design a coherent programme of study. This high level of flexibility is of particular benefit if you want to gain Masters-level knowledge and skills, without limiting yourself to a particular area of law. Specialist advice is available when constructing your programme of study.
Learning and teaching methods
Full-time delivery starts in February and September. Part-time delivery starts in September and attendance is mostly one afternoon and evening a week, over two or three years.
Over two years, you will complete all taught modules in year one and submit your dissertation at the end of year two. If you undertake the programme over three years, you will complete half the taught modules in year one and the remaining modules in year two, with your dissertation due in year three.
