This online course will offer an introduction to studying Law at university. It aims to introduce some important foundational concepts, such as the nature of Law and the Legal System, as well as an introduction to the Seven Core substantive modules of Law studied at university (Criminal Law; Law of Torts; The Law of Contract; Land or Property Law; Equity and Trusts; Constitutional and Administrative Law; and EU Law). As well as this, the course will cover some more practical aspects of studying the subject at university, such as how content is delivered (tutorials, seminars and lectures) and how it is assessed (essays and problem questions). Finally, there will be opportunities to ask questions about the application process, relevant admissions tests and ways to prepare for the degree itself.
