  • explore the primary sources of English law and the role of lawyers within the legal system;
  • begin your development of the important legal practice skills of interviewing and the giving of advice, within a framework of professional ethics and teamwork.

Moreover, this module supports you in recognizing the importance of self-reflection in study and professional practice.

The skills and learning on this module can be further developed in the module ‘Legal Foundations 2’ (LAW1023C).
