LA0718 - Litigation [LPC General]


This Module has been set up for assessment purposes only and therefore does not have a Module Descriptor. The Module is linked to LA0700 Criminal Litigation and LA0701 Civil Litigation.

The assessment is an open book practical/written 3-hour exam which will include a mix of written answers and MCQs (maximum 5 for civil and 5 for crime) that will be answered in the answer booklets. We are required to confirm to the Solicitors Regulation Authority the mark for crime and civil separately which is why 2 assessments are indicated.

Full time Courses are primarily delivered via on-campus face to face learning but could include elements of online learning. Most courses run as planned and as promoted on our website and via our marketing materials, but if there are any substantial changes (as determined by the Competition and Markets Authority) to a course or there is the potential that course may be withdrawn, we will notify all affected applicants as soon as possible with advice and guidance regarding their options. It is also important to be aware that optional modules listed on course pages may be subject to change depending on uptake numbers each year.  

Contact time is subject to increase or decrease in line with possible restrictions imposed by the government or the University in the interest of maintaining the health and safety and wellbeing of students, staff, and visitors if this is deemed necessary in future.
