Legal professionals are required to solve complex legal problems by conducting research, critically analysing authorities through interdisciplinary knowledge and transmitting concepts to different audiences including clients, other professionals and public organisations. In this unit you will conduct research into a legal issue agreed with your supervisor, critically examine the problem and prepare a written analysis suitable for publication.
Over the duration of the two terms of your honours course you will develop a specialised knowledge in this field of law and apply advanced legal research skills in critical analysis, design of research projects and transmission of results. You will work closely with an academic supervisor and with your peers to cultivate a research community and develop your capacity to provide and respond to feedback on progress.
On completion of this unit you will have produced a body of research work that demonstrates professional expertise in a variety of career destinations and forms appropriate evidence of academic research skills attainment for admission into higher degrees.
