Studying the English legal system at degree level offers a different approach from study at ‘A’ level. Lectures will guide students to sources and seek to structure the learning experience for students. Primary sources of law such as legislation and case law, to be found in law reports, must be located and read. Also secondary sources such as textbooks and journal articles will offer explanations and discussion of legal areas or points of law. These sources must then be used to answer questions which will be set for seminars and ultimately for assessment, such as coursework, oral presentations and examinations.
