Teaching and learning
The course is taught by guided distance learning independent study combined with synchronous teaching events. Synchronous teaching events are live and you attend at the same time. They take place at the end of each period of study. Some of these are currently delivered online, whilst others are held in Leicester with an option to join remotely. Access to online classes is through Microsoft Teams.
The teaching events are optional but we recommend you attend at least two, and we strongly advise you to attend all of them if possible. The teaching events provide the opportunity to interact with lecturers and tutors, embed your knowledge alongside fellow students in our distance learning community, share your work, and learning experiences, and receive guidance of your assignment before submission. The events can also help you build your network of like-minded professionals.
The course is assessed by means of module assignments and a dissertation (the dissertation requirement is applicable to those who are registered for the LLM degree).
Leicester Law School is a place where you really grow. The lecturers are friendly and approachable, and the modules are diverse, interesting and engaging.
