Online Program Modules

Module 1 - Equality Before the Law

You'll explore the role of equality within the UK constitutional framework and in particular, consider whether this principle is a procedural or substantive norm, applying only to rule application or itself constitutive of legal rules. Discussion then focuses on how exactly the state should respect this principle within a modern context.

Module 2 - Human Rights Law

This session offers you an introduction to Human Rights Law, exploring the normative foundations of the human rights doctrine and ask if it should have constitutional validity above ordinary laws. You are introduced to the three generational framework that is prevalent in human rights discourse.

Module 3 - Criminal Law

This session introduces you to Criminal Law. Students explore the basic concept of mens rea and actus reus, and how to evaluate cumulative criteria in statutory language and common law precedents. You will discuss the burden of proof for criminal convictions, and examine in detail the offence of murder, manslaughter, battery and assault.

Module 4 - Law in Practice

You will prepare for your assigned role as you explore a criminal law case in practice. Whether a witness, the accused, the victim the prosecution lawyer, defence lawyer or judge, all participants have a crucial role to play in the justice system and this provides you with an opportunity to see the law in action, as well as develop oratory skills.

  • Tutors are encouraged to include their own specialisms and also focus on any particular areas of interest expressed by participants within the class.
