Module content and teaching
This course is designed to provide students with a range of practical legal and academic skills used by lawyers and development practitioners and knowledge and understanding of the main legal theories relating to international development and human rights. Emphasis will be placed throughout on theories and practices relevant to international development and human rights, consistent with their pervasive presence as organising themes throughout the degree.
Principal learning outcomes
Central to achieving these aims will be the encouragement of critical thinking and problem solving. Students will be encouraged to develop their oral and advocacy skills through class discussions, debates and moots, role playing scenarios, etc.
Timetabled teaching activities
Classes will incorporate both the theory and practice elements although workshops on specific practical skills and scenarios will be provided as an additional and optional resource.
