International and Commercial Law

The main teaching method is by seminar. LLM options are taught in the form of three hours of seminars spread over each of the teaching weeks of the course. LLM seminars for subjects which are also taught at LLB level take place in two hour blocks every fortnight. In either case, students are expected to read the cases and other materials relevant to the particular seminar in advance. At the seminar students will be asked to support their opinions and discuss their analysis of the area. In some courses students may be expected to make a presentation on a topic assigned by the tutor. Where seminars are on a fortnightly basis, the course will be supported by three hours of lectures per week during the lecturing period. Seminars will complement the lecture series.
