Advanced Legal Research Project
Advanced Legal Research Project will further develop students’ legal research and communication skills to an advanced level, and will require students to demonstrate specialised knowledge of the topic of their dissertation. The course consists of research and writing under supervision. The course coordinator will provide guidance to each candidate concerning the definition of the topic of a proposed legal research project, and will also arrange appropriate supervision and guidance for their dissertation paper, which will usually be 8,000-10,000 words in length. Enrolment in this course is not guaranteed, as it depends on the availability of law school staff with capacity to supervise the chosen topic.
