Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The use of lecturing as the principle teaching method is justified in terms of providing an overarching narrative coherence to the course. It is necessary in order to secure the requisite knowledge base needed in order to underpin stated learning outcomes. Seminars are used in order to effect the development of a critical and contextual understanding of EU Law, and to develop those associated cognitive skills stated. Private study is directed so as to supplement the development of seminar skills and to confirm the establishment of the basic knowledge base.
'Drop-in/surgery' contact time is provided in this module as part of the Law School assessment and feedback policy such that markers and/or module leaders will offer the opportunity for one-to-one oral feedback on students' written work, in addition to written feedback on coursework front sheets and generic class feedback. The time given above is merely indicative and more time may be scheduled if necessary to meet the demand for individual feedback.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The use of examination is justified in order to test the basic knowledge base. The use of an assessed essay is justified in order to test the particular development of critical and contextual skills. On a broader level, both forms of assessment are intended to test the stated subject-specific and cognitive skills.
