- start to develop key academic, study and legal skills, using real world examples, practical experience, and role-play;
- 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).
