This unit is explicitly intended to extend skills and knowledge, developed in core subjects studied in the law curriculum, by exploring key contemporary issues in a selected area of law. This is done with a lens provided by an externally recognised expert in the field. The unit will focus on a specialist area while simultaneously investigating the wider implications for other areas. Students will analyse specific legal issues and controversies within the selected area, taking into account social attitudes, institutional practices, relevant laws and legal processes.
