About this Unit
This unit provides students with a capstone research experience in relation to a supervised legal dissertation. Students develop and refine legal research and writing skills by analysing a legal topic chosen in consultation with an academic supervisor. This unit includes training in research methodology and requires the student to undertake a literature review, to develop a research proposal, to present on the proposal and finished work, and to submit a dissertation. This year long unit can only be commenced in Autumn semester and lasts the equivalent of two consecutive semesters. The research project areas will principally focus upon those areas identified by the School of Law in its Research Strategy.
