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.
