Preliminary Reading for Incoming Undergraduate Students
The following preliminary reading is intended for incoming undergraduate students
whose places have been confirmed on one of our LLB degrees for September 2014
entry. In addition to this reading, the following documents have been mailed
through the post at the end of August to all incoming undergraduates:
* Letter confirming your place on one of our LLB degree programmes starting
in September 2014
Law Society Freshers' Booklet
* UCL Transition 2014/15 leaflet
Please note that the above information is applicable only to applicants whose
places have been confirmed on an LLB degree starting in September 2014. If
you have been confirmed on an LLB degree for a deferred place, starting in
September 2015, you will not be mailed any of the above information (with the
confirming your place for September 2015 entry). Nor is it necessary for you
to complete the preliminary reading at this stage. You will be sent up to date
information during the next admissions cycle.

|There is no preliminary reading for Contract
There is no specific preliminary reading for Criminal Law. However, we
recommend that when you acquire your text on the English legal system (see
"Legal Methods"), you should read about the differences between a criminal
trial in the Magistrates' Court and a criminal trial in the Crown Court,
and the different avenues of appeal. Alternatively, research this online.
For residents in England and Wales, this could be usefully followed up
by visits to your nearest Crown Court and/or Magistrates' Court to observe
criminal trials taking place.
As a further test of your online research skills, try to work out the
difference between a caution and a conviction, and how it should be decided
in any individual case which outcome should be preferred.
