The Dissertation module is focused around researching and writing an extended piece of legal analysis (10,000 words) in the style of an academic journal article.
The module provides a supportive framework for students to develop their field of study, undertake the research and planning of their paper, to build on established legal writing skills and to explore and test their ideas through the supervision process.
The module includes avenues of formative and summative feedback to ensure consistent student engagement throughout the academic year and for the organic development of student knowledge and skills centred around their research project.
