Welcome to the Law Faculty - weblearn.ox.ac.uk

Welcome to the Law Faculty Professor Anne Davies [email protected] What is the Law Faculty? Faculty and colleges Most academic staff in Oxford wear two hats: a Faculty role as well as

a College role. What is the Faculty responsible for? The syllabus and core reading lists Lectures Examinations The Legal Research and Mooting Skills Programme (LRMSP) Course 2 (Law with Law Studies in Europe)

Syllabus Examination Regulations: Every candidate who wishes to pass Law Moderations must offer Criminal Law and Constitutional Law and A Roman Introduction to Private Law. Course Descriptions for the three Mods courses are available in the Mods Handbook, which is on Weblearn: https://weblearn.ox.ac.uk

Lectures (1) How to find the lecture list and understand it: https://www.law.ox.ac.uk/current-students/lecture-list Lectures (2) To check for lecture timetable changes: https://www.law.ox.ac.uk/content/changes-pub lished-lecture-list Why arent lectures compulsory?

Why dont they fit with the pattern of tutorials in my college? Lectures (3): Lecture handouts and recordings Handouts/slides: May be available on Weblearn before (or sometimes after) the lecture. Some lecturers may provide paper copies. Recordings:

Some lectures are now being recorded with recordings available on Weblearn. Core reading lists Produced by the teaching group for each subject Three possible purposes: To identify what can be covered in 8 x 30 hours work To identify what students can be expected to know in the exam To provide guidance to tutors on what is usually taught

Relationship to your tutors reading list You can find them on Weblearn Legal Research Skills and Mooting Programme Part 1, Michaelmas Term: Finding sources on reading lists (information on Weblearn) Term-time, this is taught via compulsory class (1.5-2 hrs duration) in Weeks 1-2, for which you must register online (via signup link in Weblearn):

https://weblearn.ox.ac.uk/portal/hierarchy/socsci/law/lrmsp Part 2, Trinity Term: Research and mooting This is taught via compulsory classes on research for mooting (Wks 2-3); advocacy skills (Wk 4); submission of skeleton arguments and lists of authorities (Wk 6); and a moot (Wk 7). (Additional drop-in sessions for support on research are available in Wk 6). Any questions? Contact Kate Jackson in the BLL, [email protected]

Law with Law Studies in Europe (Course 2) Language classes detailed on the lecture list More information on Weblearn Assessment: Mods

Mods (1): Their significance You need to pass to progress to the rest of your degree; You need an average of 60 or more to continue on Course 2; They are the only public exam results from Oxford to be able to go on your CV for the purpose of applications for jobs, graduate study, etc before you graduate; BUT Mods results dont count towards your final degree

classification. Mods (2) Role of Notices to Candidates and the Examiners Edict; case lists and materials in the exam room Special arrangements (e.g. extra time in exams) must be organised through your college Look at examiners reports from previous years for hints; and look at past exam papers (on

Weblearn https://weblearn.ox.ac.uk/portal/site/:oxam) Mods (3): What are we looking for from you? Marking criteria: 1. Attention to the question asked; 2. Knowledge and understanding of the topic and context; 3. Comprehensiveness and accuracy;

4. Structure; 5. Identification of more than one line of argument; 6. Critical analysis and engagement with academic literature. NB this is not a formula for answering exams, but rather a set of principles which underlie all good academic work (including ours!) Mods (4) and academic work more generally: How to develop your own work along these lines Ask your tutor for the subject and/or your tutors in College

(if different) Pay attention to your tutorial essay feedback; ask your tutors if comments dont make sense or you feel as if you cant seem to improve! Take Collections seriously, so you have a more realistic sense of your readiness for Mods. More help can be found on the Faculty weblearn site: A Guide to Assessment and Feedback powerpoint, handout (see

next slide). Feedback on your work You will not receive feedback in the same way as you have been used to at school. Feedback will come in a variety of shapes and forms. For example: Discussion of your work by your tutor in tutorials Written feedback on your work (NB. If marks are awarded, we tend to use a narrower range than you are used to at school, and we dont tend to award marks

as high as you might be used to. Dont get discouraged!) Marks awarded and written feedback on your Collections (mock exams at the start of term on the previous terms work) OxCORT (our online reporting system) College sessions such as Academic Review/Provosts Collections, etc More informal meetings with your College tutors Were listening too If you have a question, comment or concern about an issue within

the Facultys responsibilities, please let us know via the LJCC (your College Law Society President can pass on any issues if you dont wish to do so directly): https://www.law.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/law-joint-con sultative-committee Or contact the Associate Dean (Undergraduates): [email protected] Chaired by one of

the Law Soc Reps who also sits on College Law Society Reps Who are all members of

Law Joint Consultative Committee (LJCC) Undergraduat e Studies Committee Chaired by the ADUS

who also sits on Which also contains LJCC reps Law Faculty Board Other feedback for us

Please do also fill in lecture questionnaires and other surveys. We really do want to know what you think! If you need help contact your college tutor Or see our FAQs about the undergraduate law degree Remember: You are still a student, but we really do mean it when we talk about

scholarship. Your tutors and lecturers will essentially engage you as an academic equal. Your job is not to look for a right answer, but to develop your own analysis and assessment of the law and how it might be improved. You will get as much out of the course as you are willing and able to put in.
