Event description
Presented by the LLM Research Director for 2019/20 - Dr. Bernard Schneider

About this Event

All students are required to complete a dissertation as part of programme of study to demonstrate your research skills in a particular area of law.

The dissertation topic must be within your specialism but is otherwise up to you.

The dissertation provides an opportunity to undertake in-depth research of a legal topic of your choice. This will contribute to the development of a wide range of transferable skills such as writing, research and methodological, analytical and project management skills. The capacity to produce a clearly structured and well written piece of work can be highly rewarding from an academic and personal perspective, and demonstrating the ability to do so is important professionally.

The dissertation is the compulsory element of the total assessment on the degree programme. Thus, it is essential that you take care to put together a dissertation of sufficiently high standard to satisfy the examiners.

Students wishing to do one additional dissertation in place of taught credits will need to discuss this with TPO staff. It may be possible in some circumstances but is not guaranteed or recommended. No more than two dissertations and/or 90 credits can be done by dissertation.

There is no pre-set formula for writing a dissertation. We provide guidelines on the standard expected and general advice on how to plan and write your dissertation.
