This unit, on Contemporary International Legal Challenges, 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. (The specialist area that forms the subject of this unit will vary bi-annually. Specific details will be identified by DLS and notified to students as these become known and prior to enrolment being made available). The essential focus of the unit will be to reflect on issues of legal principle relating to specific emerging issues and controversies and to develop forward-thinking strategies and solutions to address emerging law and public policy issues.
