What you'll study

You will begin the course by studying the seven core modules of a law degree in your first year (FT) or second year (DL) at level 7.

You will then study the six subject areas which constitute SQE 1’s Functioning Legal Knowledge Assessments, integrating substantive law with procedural law and ethics.

The six subject areas are taught at level 7 too and are designed to build upon the knowledge and understanding of the law and skills that have been gained by studying the seven core modules of law in the first part of this course. This is achieved through the use of realistic case studies relating to the law and procedure in the context of Dispute Resolution, Property Law and Practice, Business Law and Practice, Criminal Law and Practice; and Wills and the Administration of Estates and Trusts.

Prior to enrolling on the course, you will receive revision materials containing key principles of law applicable to the practice areas to be studied in this course and to be tested in SQE 1. Whilst there is no face to face teaching of these key principles of law you will be required to test your knowledge and understanding of them throughout the course by undertaking a number of MCQ’s and to build upon this using the resources provided.

How you’re taught

The modules on this course are delivered through a series of lectures in each subject area in order to enable a student to develop relevant basic knowledge and understanding. The lectures act as a stimulus to encourage involvement in the relevant knowledge and understanding and to develop independent learning.
