Course modules

Teaching will mostly be seminar-based which will promote group and individual interaction, which also ensures that every individual student is encouraged to contribute to discussions. Seminar-based teaching enables lecturers and students to discuss issues and investigate topics in greater depth, and develops critical thinking and solution-based learning skills in students; whilst also allowing the course teachers to monitor closely each individual's progress. Emphasis will be placed on the use of virtual learning through the mechanism of the Blackboard computer-assisted learning system and databases such as Westlaw and LexisNexis. Throughout all modules, comparative elements with other legal systems will be emphasised. Teaching will be in English; however, according to the University's Welsh language policy, students who so wish may be examined and present essays, coursework and dissertations through the medium of Welsh. Compulsory modules: Legal Research Methods (Exemptions from this module may be granted if a student has achieved the learning outcomes in another way, e.g. already having done and LLM or LLB with a research or dissertation element. Requests for exemption should be made to the Director of Postgraduate Studies). Optional modules (choose 5): Comparative Corporate Governance International Banking Law International Commercial Arbitration Law Intellectual Property Law World Trade Law Competition Law Industrial Property Law Employment Law International Environmental Law International Taxation Law European Union Internal Market Law International Sales Law Modules to the value of 30 credits may be undertaken from those offered by Bangor Business School, the School of Social Sciences and the Welsh Institute of Social and Cultural Affairs subject to prior approval. Programmes and modules are constantly updated and reviewed. As with most academic programmes, please remember that it is possible that specific modules or programmes may not be offered in any particular year, because a member of staff is on study leave, for instance, or too few students opt for it. Bangor Law School reserves the right to vary or withdraw any course or module. Module listings are for guide purposes only and are subject to change.
