Course Content The main teaching mechanism is a series of on-line seminars, (5 in each 15 credit module), spread over the length of the teaching block and covering the key elements of the syllabus. On the part-time route students study 2 modules in parallel in each of two 17 week teaching blocks with 12 weeks of teaching followed by a 5 week independent study and assessment preparation period. The on-line learning materials are designed for self study, ahead of the Seminars. These materials will generally consist of pre-reading, and other exercises, each seminar will additionally include specific tasks and discussion points. At these seminars you will have the opportunity to ask questions, to present your answers to particular topics and to lead the group in presentations based on your research, at all times the emphasis is on your participation – the seminars are never lecture based. You may also receive podcasts in advance of the seminars and will be expected to prepare answers to a number of specific questions, these answers will then be posted to a discussion forum or wiki in order to allow the group to comment, reflect and expand upon the topic, part of this online discussion will be assessed and will count towards the final mark. Modules include, Corporate Finance Law, International Banking Law, Transnational Corporate Governance, Intellectual Property law and European Union Law.
