Laws Skills Portfolio
Satisfactory completion of the Laws Skills Portfolio is a requirement for the LLB as a Qualifying Law Degree and LCLS (S) has set a landmark about the way in which the final year students are comprehensively groomed for the LSP submission for students who have completed Tort Law in May 2015.
The Laws Skills Portfolio involves a student in their final year providing evidence and reflective commentary demonstrating that they have attained skills in five areas: 1) legal research; 2) autonomy of learning; 3) information technology; 4) oral communication, and 5) team working. The portfolio is submitted online and is assessed as ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Unsatisfactory’. The anti-plagiarism software will be used. There is also a short Laws Skills Portfolio examination. There are two methods by which a student may attain the research skills (and demonstrate the other skills around that): Laws Skills Pathway 1 or Laws Skills Pathway2.
Laws Skills Pathway 1
A student who is registered for the Laws Dissertation course option[LA3200] submit information about the research processes they used in researching for their Dissertation (and associated activities) as evidence for the Laws Skills Portfolio[LA3201]. (This code number is used for the Laws Skills Portfolio submitted on Laws Skills Pathway 1.)
Laws Skills Pathway 2
A student undertakes a small independent research project in addition to their existing course options and submits their evidence for the Law Skills Portfolio[LA3202] on the basis of this research (and associated activities). (This code number is used for the Laws Skills Portfolio submitted on Laws Skills Pathway 2.)
