    Under the guidance of the unit convenor and an external partner, a student will complete a practical project on an appropriate legal topic. The approximate length of a dissertation will be 5,000 words although the length of a more practical project may vary according to the nature of the topic selected. Students are encouraged to undertake a practical or reflective project based on their work experience, or based on an organisation to which they can gain significant access.

    The unit may be co-taught with unit 8750 Law in Practice PG.
