In order to complete Level 6 of our CILEX programme, you need to pass two linked law and practice papers and two other papers of your choice. However, you may choose to take individual subjects of Level 6 as single subject examinations.
Full details are available from the course tutor.
The single subject Diploma involves the study of one topic area from the Law School portfolio.
A range of Module options are available including Immigration Law, Employment law, Contract Law, Tort, Equity and Trusts, European Law, and Criminal law. Please consult the course tutor for further details.
The programme employs a blended learning strategy where attendance in lectures, workshops and seminars is supported by a comprehensive e-learning portal, Moodle.
The Moodle resources link to website, to our e-databases, electronic books and tutor/librarian produced materials. Through module links students access each module on the programme and for each module there is a module handbook with reading lists, workshop and seminar tasks. Each module is divided into a weekly breakdown of materials and specific resources. The resources may include lecture PowerPoint’s, lecture hand-outs, television programmes, web links, video clips, MCTs and other tutors created materials.
The Moodle site is comprehensive and a valuable resource for our students supporting different styles of learning.
All tutors have access to Skype and this can be utilised inside and outside of the classroom. Students may use such for one to one discussions with tutors throughout the year.
Both Skype and Moodle have messaging tools to assist communication to student either as a group or to individuals.
Lectures and workshops/seminars.
Lectures will be interactive with question and answer sessions and other forms of student involvement. Workshops are designed to enhance individual learning in relation to a common end task (the set seminar task(s)) which will then be explored in further detail with the tutor in the seminar.
The individualised workshops may have students practicing timed essays, whilst others are involved in peer discussion and support or do last minute preparation or view resources on the learning portal or even test their knowledge with multiple choice questions (MCQs). In the workshop, the onus is on the student to identify their learning requirements.
Assessment is by examinations.
Many students who successfully complete this course go on to join our LLB undergraduate degree which is also available part time. Other students work within the legal and advice community.
Students will be allocated a personal tutor in the Law School, who can be contacted in person, by telephone, e-mail or Skype. This tutor will be the first point of contact for both pastoral and academic issues.
Induction is seen as an important aspect of the programme and helps to prepare students for study level and to help them familiarise themselves with the facilities and support mechanisms available to them. The Induction process will give the students the opportunity to meet other students on their programme, members of the programme team and the subject librarian, as well as preparing them for their programme of study
Students will receive, via the College's e-learning portal Moodle, a College student handbook which will provide information regarding the College and the services that the College can provide to students.
Law students also receive bespoke module handbooks for each module of study. These will include the full scheme of work, recommended reading, and seminar / workshop tasks. The seminar / workshop tasks will be a mixture of professional/vocational and academic exercises. These handbooks and other learning resources are available via Moodle.
Various other guides, including course documentation and careers guidance, are available on Moodle.
The College has a comprehensive law library which utilises on-line publications including Lexis Nexus Professional, Westlaw and Lawtel. These systems can be accessed from anywhere in the College including the Law School computer suite and, with an Athens account; students can access them from work or home. The Law Resource Room in the library also houses the Moot Court which is utilised in Skills sessions and extra-curricular competitions. The Moot Court provides a quiet study room when not being utilised as a court.
Students with disabilities, if disclosed to the College, will receive support from the College Learner Services Unit which has specialists in many areas to support students with learning difficulties or disabilities such as dyslexia, visual impairment, and epilepsy. The support which can be offered to students includes note-takers, the provision of specialist technical equipment, and ensuring that assessments are suitable with adjustments such as sitting examinations separately.
