Information for students applying to take a module in Laws

This page outlines information for students who wish to apply to take a Laws module at UCL. Please see below for information regarding eligibility criteria, the application process and the modules available. Applications can be made throughout the summer and no later than Friday 26 September 2014.

Eligibility

Students who have no experience of studying Law at university level are eligible to apply to Intermediate (first year) LLB modules only - Contract, Public Law, Property I, and Criminal Law.

Any student applying to take a module in Laws must be of a good 2:1 standard or, alternatively, A*AA at A level, or the equivalent, if the student is in their first year of study. In addition, students wishing to study one of the Part I or Part II options must have already completed and passed the pre-requisite Intermediate module in the same subject (if applicable).

Even if a student fulfils the above criteria, the Faculty Tutor maintains the right to refuse a student a place on one of the Laws modules should they consider them not suited to the module, or should the module have already reached its full capacity.

How to apply for a place on a Laws module

UCL Interdepartmental Applicants (excluding ESPS students who should see below for details)

Students from other departments at UCL wishing to take a module in Laws should contact the Undergraduate Office by email (ug-law@ucl.ac.uk) in the first instance. This email should include your details (name, year of study and programme of study), the module you wish to apply for and a short statement outlining your interest and motivation to study the module. We will be able to download your results to date from Portico; if you are enrolling on to your first year of your degree programme in September please forward the details of your most recent school qualifications/grades).

Applications can be made over the course of the summer. The deadline for all applications is Friday 26 September 2014.

Applications will be referred to the Faculty Tutor for consideration and the Undergraduate Office will notify candidates of the final decision over the course of summer. If your application has been approved we will instruct you to enter the module via Portico.

Please bear in mind that when timetabling the undergraduate teaching we cannot take into account the timetables of other UCL departments. If there is a timetabling clash it is your responsibility to resolve this.

UCL European Social and Political Studies BA Applicants

This section contains information for students enrolled on the European Social and Political Studies BA at UCL. Students enrolled on other degree programmes at UCL should read the guidance in the section above for UCL Interdepartmental Applicants.

Students on this degree programme are able to select the Laws modules they wish to complete via Portico Module Registration and your choices will be approved/rejected accordingly. Please see below under the Available Laws modules heading a list of modules available and any specific pre-requisites. Those who have not studied any Law modules before are required to take a first year Law module. Final year Law modules should only be applied for by those who are entering the final year of their degree programme. It is unlikely that those who are not entering their final year will be accepted on to these modules. However, if you are interested in taking these modules in your second year then please get in touch with the Undergraduate Office (ug-law@ucl.ac.uk).

If you are interested in taking the first year European Legal Systems I (French/German/Spanish) module then you will need to meet with the module convenor to test your language ability before you can be accepted onto the module. These modules are a pre-requisite for the second year European Legal Studies II (French/German/Spanish) module. Please select the relevant module code (listed below) in your Portico Module Registrations and then email the Undergraduate Office (ug-law@ucl.ac.uk) to ask to arrange an appointment with the module convenor.
European Legal Studies I (French) – LAWS1007
European Legal Studies I (German) – LAWS1008
European Legal Studies I (Spanish) – LAWS1010

Applications can be made over the course of the summer. The deadline is Friday 26 September 2014.

Please bear in mind when timetabling the undergraduate teaching we cannot take into account the timetables of other UCL departments. If there is a timetabling class it is your responsibility to resolve this.
