Private study is supported through tuition and lectures at residential teaching weekend/study schools held at the University of Leicester. These will develop your understanding of the module materials through traditional teaching techniques such as lectures, tutorials and workshops. Teaching will be delivered by academic staff from the University of Leicester and by leading experts from other universities and EU law practitioners.
The residential teaching weekends ensure that the quality of your course is of the same high standard as the Law School’s full time LLM degree. Though attending the residential teaching sessions is not a formal requirement of obtaining the qualification you are strongly encouraged to attend.
