Programme Rationale The LLM is becoming an ever more popular stage in a student s study prior to the vocational stage of legal training or as a foundation for other career routes such as academia or private business. It builds upon undergraduate academic study and allows students to explore the law in far greater depth than was possible for them at undergraduate degree. Our students include law graduates (both home and overseas), former CPE students, as well as lawyers already in practice. We offer both a one year fulltime and two year part-time LLM, thus enabling individuals in practice to continue their studies at the same time as working. However, the full-time option still remains by far the most popular option with students. The LLM programme is designed to enable students to explore legal themes/concepts in depth, to interrelate them and subsequently apply the law to complex problems. Our LLM students are encouraged to be imaginative and to be ready to make imaginative and independent leaps in their research, (i.e. original thoughts). This approach is reinforced through rigorous research, (including Information Technologybased research) on the part of students to generate academically informed and commercially aware solutions/outcomes to complex problems. The goal of our LLM is to ensure that our students should not only be well qualified in independent research and complex problem solving but also develop the ability to reflect upon the implications for their own practice areas and/or career pathways. The Hertfordshire LLM emphasizes the connections and inter-relationships which may be made between the pathways offered on the programme. The eight main pathways are Chinese Commercial Law, Commercial Law, Commercial Dispute Resolution, E-Commerce Law, Intellectual Property, International Law, International Financial Law and Maritime Law. This provides students with a substantial amount of flexibility in designing the programme of study which suits their particular needs/interests. The compulsory subjects for each pathway ensure that students studying a particular aspect of the law are provided with an essential grounding in that area. Students are then free to study a variety of options alongside these compulsory subjects, which are intended to complement the subject areas covered within the LLM s named pathways. The LLM in Legal Practice is offered to graduates from the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course to enable them to experience work based learning through the internship module. These students are admitted to the programme with advanced standing and credited with the taught element of the LLM programme (4 modules) from their previous course of study on the Legal Practice Course. The PG Certificate in Chinese Commercial Law is available to students who complete the modules Chinese Commercial Law (Semester A) and Chinese Investment Law (Semester B). Recognising the importance of the Chinese market and also the increase in outsourcing from China, this programme is intended to be marketed as a short course to allow people in business and engaged in commerce with Chinese companies to explore key critical issues in these areas. B. Educational Aims of the Programme 3

4 The programme has been devised in accordance with the University's graduate attributes of programmes of study as set out in UPR TL3. Additionally this programme aims to: Extend students systematic understanding of the law and a critical awareness of current problems and/or research at the forefront of the subject areas of their choice; Enhance students intellectual, transferable and interpersonal skills as well as developing otherpostgraduate skills including independent research, the exercise of initiative and critical awarenessof current problems To provide education that enhances a student s prospects of either professional, commercial,business or academic employment C. Intended Learning Outcomes The programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, skills and other attributes in the following areas. The programme outcomes are referenced to the QAA benchmark statements for Law and the Frameworks for Higher Education Qualifications of UK Degree-Awarding Bodies (214), and relate to the typical student. Additionally, the SEEC Credit Level Descriptors for Further and Higher Education 21 have been used as a guiding framework for curriculum design. Knowledge and Understanding of: A1: A systematic, current and comprehensive indepth knowledge of a number of specialist legal concepts. A2: A wide-ranging ability to critically evaluate theoretical and practical legal concepts to arrive at appropriate solutions. A3: A professional understanding of practice related issues and contexts pertinent to the subject area. Teaching/learning methods & strategies Acquisition of knowledge and understanding is through Weekly seminars comprise a combination of staff lectures, small group work as well as large group discussion. Knowledge and understanding are initially developed through directed research activities which include a combination of the following: (i) Module guide which sets out the subject matter for the session, (ii) Recommended reading so as to prepare for the session; (iii) Further reading as consolidation work and extension work following the session; (iv) Deep linked materials available via the StudyNet module page, (i.e. cases, law reports); (v) staff/student discussion group facility on the StudyNet module page; (vi) student discussion facility on StudyNet Weekly seminars include sections devoted to staff lecturing so as to provide students with clarification of key points / issues. Other sections of the weekly seminar Assessment Knowledge and understanding are assessed through Each of the four 3-credit modules require students to submit 3 coursework assignments (A2): (i) 1,5 word assignment; (ii) 1, word assignment; and (iii) 2,5 word assignment The first assignment requires independent research with an ability to critically evaluate theoretical and legal concepts. The same applies to the third piece of coursework. The second assignment differs depending upon whether the module is taught in Semester A or Semester B. If the module is taught in Semester A, the assessment will be a personalised feedback response (PFR). 4

B2: A capacity to work independently to reach reasoned conclusions from complex theoretical or problem-based scenarios. include small group work, which enables students to pool resources / knowledge and to work collectively on solutions to problem scenarios and/or essay type questions. Large group discussion then enables students to clarify questions / queries arising from the work undertaken during the weekly seminar. Further independent research is encouraged, through two assignments which require students to consolidate their knowledge so as to formulate solutions. Online lectures will also be available during each of the modules. Throughout, the learner is encouraged to undertake independent study both to supplement and consolidate what is being taught / learnt and to broaden their individual knowledge and understanding of the subject.

The aim of this assessment will be to reflect on the comments made from the first piece of work with a view to learning lessons to feed forward into future assessments. (A1) If the module is taught in Semester B, assignment 2 will take the form of a forward looking assignment (FLA) as students will need to delve deeply into a discrete area of the module, which in turn will support their work for the final assignment. (A2) The Dissertation module builds on this foundation by requiring students to identify a subject area and to focus on aspects which are at the forefront and/or invite academic exploration. Students are required to explore an appropriate methodology, (i.e. literature review) (A1, A2, A3). The Internship module also builds on this foundation by requiring students to identify a subject area and to focus on aspects which are at the forefront and/or invite academic exploration.

C2: Critically reflect on their own previous academic performance with the capacity to highlight areas for future improvement. C3: Work autonomously within a discrete, complex and specialised area of law. Teaching/learning methods & strategies Practical skills are developed through The Module guide sets out the leading technical legal concepts to be covered during the session and within the module. This is supported by (i) Recommended reading; and (ii) Further reading as consolidation work and extension work Weekly seminars provide the opportunity for students to work in small group environments, which require students to apply their knowledge to complex and unpredictable scenarios or essay style discussion questions within the context of the selective substantive areas of law being studied, (i.e. specialized contexts). Large group discussion then enables students to expand upon this small group work so as to share technical legal expertise and explore its application to the scenarios covered. Further independent research is encouraged, through two assignments which require students to critically evaluate academic theory, legal theory so as to formulate solutions to complex / unpredictable situations. Both the Dissertation and Internship modules enable students to develop further their initiative and responsibility in professional practice by requiring them to meet with their supervisors on 5-6 occasions, and to reflect upon this, as well as their own learning experiences. Both modules also require students to reflect upon the application of legal principles to forefront and/or invite academic exploration.
