There are lots of exciting events happening within the Law School. Plus there are many other University and external events which may be of interest. We have therefore collated them all into one central calendar to help you choose which you would like to attend.

Introduction to Common Law Workshop

- Export as iCalendar

This workshop will explain some basic features of common law systems to students who have been trained in a different legal tradition.

Taking English law, the mother of all common law jurisdictions, as an example we will explore:

  • the various meanings of the term common law
  • the division between law and equity
  • typical features of common law systems
  • sources of law
  • the doctrine of precedent and
  • statutory interpretation,

and will note where there are differences within the common law world.

There are several short video recordings and further reading explaining key features available in the material for the MS Teams session on 19 October. In the session itself, we will be discussing these issues further and do some practical exercises.

You can join the session here.

Resources and videos can be accessed through this Moodle.
