This module will assess your learning on your legal placement as a compulsory element of the LLB with Legal Placement Programme. It significantly increases and deepens your understanding of the legal workplace and issues relating to legal professionalism and the future of law beyond the academic learning in your academic modules. It gives you a deeper understanding of legal practice and learning through the experience of a different learning culture, develops your practical law skills (both through work experience and through writing your dissertation plan), broadening your overall experience of learning. The aim of the 'reflective log' element of the module is to focus your awareness on the impact of your placement, comparing expectations with realities and developing a critical awareness of reality of the legal workplace. You will be enabled to reflect on the problems posed by different working conditions and by the challenges of everyday life in an unfamiliar social and economic environment.

This module is only for students taking the LLB with Legal Placement.
