Andrew Watson - Department Overview

Last Updated:

Well, hopefully you'll be spending the time looking around the campus here. We've got some of the most up to date onsite facilities for students and we're one of the best IT-enabled universities, I think, in the area. Most of our distance learning students they have full access to our online databases. We offer a range of online, legal, and other databases which are available through our library service, inter-library loan service. But also students are welcome if they're local or able to come to us to access the facilities here and they're also often able to access facilities local to themselves through us as well.

...that we offer excellent facilities to our students. I think that we offer a high standard of teaching, which is based in practice. We have staff members who predominantly have been drawn from practice who bring their practice knowledge to the areas in which we work. And for the distance learning LLMs, in particular the one that I run, we are one of the few, if not the only, people who provide a high quality LLM qualification in this particular area of work.

The Information Rights Master's program was introduced following us winning a contract with the then Department of Constitutional Affairs, following an open tender process and we're one of the only people I think who provide anything like that in the country.
