The principal aim of this module is to create an understanding of the integrated and dynamic nature of the law. This module recognises that in practice clients seldom come with neatly packaged legal issues, therefore, it is imperative for legal practitioners to have acquired a holistic and cohesive understanding of the law. Therefore, this module provides students with the opportunity to participate in a group project which requires use of all the legal skills and knowledge they will have acquired. The purpose of this module is to allow students to showcase the legal concepts, principles, theories and skills garnered during their legal education and to develop their personal and legal communication skills.
