Overview

This Legal Practice course from Staffordshire University combines the taught elements with a tutor guided research project. Alongside the LPC core and elective modules, students will undertake a Blended Learning module in Legal Research Methods where they will engage with differing research methodologies and practices and produce an assessed final project/dissertation proposal.

Students will have two primary options for their final research project/dissertation in that they can opt to align their research to their work within a legal field or if not currently employed in the legal sector can choose from a prescribed list of academic research topics.
