About this Unit
This year long unit can only be commenced in Autumn semester and lasts the equivalent of two consecutive semesters (excluding Summer Semester). Only existing students will be re-enrolled in Spring semester to complete this unit. The unit comprises the research and writing of a research dissertation of between 10,000 and 12,000 words on an approved topic in law. The unit provides an opportunity for law students to further develop and refine their legal research and writing skills and to explore and analyse a legal topic chosen in consultation with the School of Law Honours Coordinator, in order to produce a high quality piece of academic work. It includes training in research methodology, and support activities including presenting at an honours research seminar and requires the student to undertake a literature review and submission of a research proposal, upon acceptance of which the dissertation is written under supervision.
