How you are assessed

A variety of assessment methods are used to test subject knowledge and understanding. Examinations include traditional unseen papers, including both closed and open book-style examinations.

In addition to examinations, students are assessed by coursework which takes the form of assignments, mooting, individual and group presentations, negotiations, and workbooks. Written assignments may be in the form of an in-depth case study, an essay, writing a review or reflective piece. Coursework provides students with an opportunity to gauge how they are coping with various subject areas and levels of study before having to sit an examination.

These methods of assessment allow students to show how they have acquired both legal knowledge and the ability to think critically about the subject. In addition, they allow the student to reflect on the feedback given for an assessed piece of work and to think of ways to improve the quality of their work before they sit an examination at the end of the academic year or attempt another piece of coursework.

The assessment regime also allows students to demonstrate the acquisition of key skills. Written assignments allow students to demonstrate their ability to select, interpret, and summarise legal sources. In addition, written assignments and examinations, enable students to show that they have developed their literacy and proficiency in the use of technical legal language, as well as having developed their ability to produce a sound argument based on coherence and logic. The development of oral skills and the ability to be persuasive are assessed through presentations and mooting.

It features a judge's bench, witness stand, clerk's desk, and prosecution and defence solicitor's benches to simulate the environment of a working court room.
