Student Academic Requirements

  • Students must attend the classes as scheduled, must attend professional visits (e.g., Legal London and the UK Supreme Court), and complete assignments (normally, one short tutorial paper each week, and two final examinations).
  • Students will receive a letter grade based on examination, papers (where applicable), and class participation. Methods of assessment will be discussed in each individual class. Generally speaking, tutorial papers will be graded based on whether they answer the question posed by the tutor, coherence of argument, depth of reading, accuracy of use of sources, overall organization, and grammatical correctness.
