Course Content

This course is designed to improve your legal problem solving skills as well as coursework and exam technique. Each week we cover one area of law and focus on a particular legal skill. Students will be asked to prepare one piece of written homework to be collected the following week. Individual feedback is provided to each student for every piece of work submitted. You will also receive your tutor’s email address so you will be able to contact him or her if questions arise between sessions.

Please note that a £150 deposit is required at the time of registration. Payment of the deposit will secure your place and will be deducted from the total course fees. Once we have received your registration and deposit we will send you all relevant course information and an invoice for the remaining course fees via email. To maximize the course’s effectiveness we will also contact you to arrange a telephone interview before the beginning of the course to find out about your special areas of interest and current level of study. This will enable us to tailor the course to our students’ specific needs.

If you would like more information on this course or you have any questions get in touch with us.
