20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This is an optional module for final year students who volunteer ┐ or have volunteered - at one of the pro bono projects approved by the School. It builds on students┐ training and experience in various legal and criminal justice processes, develops students┐ transferrable skills and prepares them for further study and employment. The pro bono project will form the basis for learning and assessments undertaken on the module, but the work carried out on the project per se is not assessed or credited towards the module. This module is approved as a Research Module for final year undergraduate students, as it requires students to conduct self-directed research including retrieval and evaluation of accurate current and relevant information from a range of appropriate sources. This module is part of a suite of optional Special Project modules, so is not available to any student undertaking another Special Project module.

Restrictions on availability: Only available to final year law students. No other 'Special Project' modules can be taken at the same time

Teaching Methods: Tutorials, Problem solving, Clinical work, Independent Study,
Assessment: Course work, Presentation, Project/ portfolio
