We encourage substantial student participation and class discussion in seminars and tutorials on the basis of prepared work. Considerable emphasis is placed on small-group teaching where you will benefit from individual attention and advice.
You will be taught by distinguished academics who are cutting-edge researchers in their diverse fields. Their knowledge of law and their significant experience and influence will enrich your learning.
