How you'll learn

Teaching methods vary throughout the course but include lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops and individual supervision. These are supported by digital materials and module guides.

There will be practical assignments and you will prepare and give presentations in front of your fellow students. For some of the law modules, you'll learn through coursework and presentations. There are also opportunities to engage in debates and mooting in our state-of-the-art courtroom.

Studying at university is more demanding than school or college. Outside formal teaching times, you'll need to undertake a lot of independent study.  We organise guest lectures, conferences and other events, giving you the chance to enhance your learning and build a professional network. If you take advantage of these activities and play an active role in student societies, you'll find that the more you put in, the more you get out.

We encourage you to volunteer or gain work experience to give you new experiences and enhance your studies. Many law students volunteer at our Legal Advice Centre, working alongside practising solicitors to give advice to local residents on real legal problems and providing a need to those who otherwise would not be able to get legal advice.

    Guided independent study

    When not attending timetabled lectures or workshops, you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. This will typically involve skills development through online study, reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects and preparing coursework assignments and presentations. Your independent learning is supported by a range of excellent facilities including online resources, and specialist facilities, such as game labs, the library, the full Microsoft Office software, including MS Teams, and Moodle: our Virtual Learning Environment.

    Academic support

    Our academic support team provides help in a range of areas - including learning and disability support.

    Dedicated personal tutor

    When you arrive, we'll introduce you to your personal tutor. This is the member of staff who will provide academic guidance, be a support throughout your time at UEL and who will show you how to make the best use of all the help and resources that we offer.

    Workload

    Each year you will spend around 300 hours of timetabled learning and teaching activities. These may be lectures, workshops, seminars and individual and group tutorials. Contact hours may vary depending on each module.

    Your timetable

    Your individualised timetable is normally available to students within 48 hours of enrolment. Whilst we make every effort to ensure timetables are as student-friendly as possible, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week between 9.00am and 6.00pm. For undergraduate students, Wednesday afternoons are normally reserved for sports and cultural activities, but there may be occasions when this is not possible. Timetables for part-time students will depend on the modules selected.

    Class sizes

    Class sizes will vary.

How you'll be assessed

We'll assess you with a mix of coursework and exams. Coursework can include essays, a reflective diary, oral presentations, practical exercises and answering hypothetical problem questions. 

Assessment is designed to enable us to see how you manage in a variety of situations that reflect the real world of work rather than simply focusing on traditional unseen exams. Throughout the course, you'll be given plenty of feedback to support you in your studies.

What our students and staff say

 catherine hobby profile
I enjoy being a law teacher as it can change student’s view of the world around them. Teaching is most rewarding when I assist students in developing an understanding of complex or technical aspects of the law that they can then apply to solve practical legal problems. It is also great to use my research to put the law into context for students so they appreciate the law is not neutral but created by legislators and policymakers to impact individuals."

I love law and my time at the University was positive and has opened up new horizons – one of them being a place on the prestigious Civil Service Fast Stream graduate scheme."
