Course summary

On this degree you will learn through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, informal but scheduled one-on-one support, and self-directed learning, such as research, reading, and writing. All of these are supported by a virtual learning environment, Durham University Online (DUO). Seminars and tutorials are much smaller groups than lectures, small enough to allow one-on-one interaction with academic staff. Durham Law School is one of only a handful of law schools that teaches in groups as small as eight students.This emphasis on small-group teaching reflects a conscious choice to enhance the quality of the learning experience rather than the number of formal sessions.Small-group teaching and one-on-one attention from your academic advisor at the start of your degree is part of the learning experience throughout leading to more independent research, including a capstone dissertation – supported by one-on-one supervision – that makes up a third of your final year credits.In this way, the degree systematically transforms you from a consumer of knowledge in the classroom to a generator of knowledge, ready for professional or postgraduate life. These formal teaching arrangements are supported by ‘drop-in’ surgeries with teaching staff and induction sessions that begin in the week before the start of the degree and continue at key times throughout each year of the course.You can also attend an extensive programme of research-focused seminars where staff and visiting scholars present their cutting-edge research.We review course structures and core content (in light of e.g. external and student feedback) every year, and will publish finalised core requirements for 2022 entry from September 2021.**For more information on this course, please see our website.**
