In a previous post, I gave you all a personal review of my first year modules. Now, I think it’s finally time to talk about Year 2…
1. EU LAW (Compulsory)
EU Law was a compulsory second year module but I have to admit I really enjoyed it by the end. I have to warn you, though, that it is particularly heavy in terms of theory and case law. Nonetheless, I found it to be really interesting as it reminded me slightly of Constitutional and Administrative Law and because it is extremely topical. I just hope the UK remains in the European Union so that studying this whole module was not a total waste of time!
2. FAMILY LAW (Optional)
Family Law is an optional module that is available to study either in you second or final year. Again, I really liked this subject because you learn all about the formation and termination of legal relationships, laws relating to cohabitation, domestic violence and child law.
3. LAND LAW (Compulsory if you want a Qualifying Law Degree)
Personally, Land Law was my least favourite. Even though its a really useful and practical module, I did find it quite dry from time to time. However, it is one that you have to complete in order to get a QLD and if I survived it, anyone can!
4. HUMAN RIGHTS AND CIVIL LIBERTIES (Optional Module)
Human Rights and Civil Liberties is the BEST MODULE I HAVE EVER TAKEN. The fact that I want to pursue a career in human rights aside, it was an extremely interesting and excellently taught module. The course provides you with knowledge of the provision of rights in the Human Rights Act and the ECHR, as well as the issues relating to freedom of expression, right of assembly and more. Most importantly, the lectures are led by 3 amazing experts: Yassin Brunger, David Bonner and the amazing Peter Cumper. If I had the choice of studying it again, I would!
I hope this post has been informative and if you have any questions about modules, please comment below!
Until next time,
