Modules

This module provides students with the generic knowledge and skills necessary for studying on the LLM programs. The module has a practical as well as a theoretical focus. Practically, guidance is provided on how to locate and evaluate a broad spectrum of legal materials. At the theoretical level, the module requires critical engagement with fundamental questions, such as ?What is law?? and ?How is law different from other social practices??. It also requires insight into the sources of law in positivist terms, as well as from a wider jurisprudential perspective. The module will deal with the core question of how the law made at the domestic level interact with global society and global law and politics.
