Modules
Our skills-focused modules have been specially designed to develop your analytical, evaluative, reasoning, communication and problem-solving abilities. A strong focus on career planning, commercial awareness and entrepreneurship is integrated into the course and in the final year there is a Path to Professional Practice module which provides a transition to the next stage of professional legal training if you wish to pursue a legal career.

In the first two years you will study compulsory foundation modules required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board in order to achieve a Qualifying Law Degree. This initial focus upon Public Law, Human Rights and European Union Law provides an ideal basis for the subsequent study of specialist European Law modules at Radboud

Please note that options are subject to change.

All our LLB courses operate within a common framework. This not only ensures consistently high standards but also means that should your circumstances change then we are normally able to facilitate a change in your programme and study mode. You should discuss any request to change course with your personal tutor.

How will I learn?

Skills are integral to the course and you will build and refine these as your degree progresses. Initially you will focus on the key skills of problem solving, case analysis, report writing and teamwork. You will also be introduced to oral presentation through the mooting module.

In Year Two and Three these core skills will be developed to a more advanced level. You will be expected to address more complex, multi-issue assignments and apply legal analysis. Assignments will require increasing levels of independent research and critical evaluation and your writing will become more specialised, focussing on specific client advice with reasoned and logical arguments.

Each of the pathways studied in the final year at Radboud requires a written thesis on a subject within the field of European Law. The thesis brings together a range of advanced legal skills building upon skills development in previous modules and provides an opportunity to demonstrate what you have learnt. As well as enabling you to develop further specialist knowledge the thesis provides an opportunity for you to directly relate your studies to your particular career aspirations.

Each module is delivered through a series of lectures and there will be regular seminars linked to each lecture, which provides the opportunity to enhance your understanding through critical evaluation of your own reading and debate.

How will I be assessed?

Your knowledge and understanding will be assessed by a diverse range of methods that reflect the skills required. You will take part in:

  • oral presentations
  • mooting exercises
  • case analysis
  • research projects
  • group projects
  • problem solving assignments
  • both seen and unseen examinations.
