“Tort was truly wonderful. I wish the lecturer had been a tutor at my College. We covered a terrific amount of material and she gave us a framework for answering any question. Contract was great, excellent on the cases and very helpful on exam technique and the lecturer for Trusts was superb. These weekends have been worth every penny.” Anne Mannion, GDL, College of Law

The following request for information was made to the University:

“For each of the foundation of legal knowledge / core law subjects taught on undergraduate programmes provided by the University:

(a) the average mark attained by students sitting the first examination in each subject in the academic year 2007/8.

Please provide the information based on the actual marks attained in the respective examinations and not on ‘compensated’ or ‘capped’ marks.

Please exclude data related to resit examinations taken at a later exam. Where, for example, the first examination was taken in May 2008 and there was a resit examination in August 2008 the average mark should be based on the marks attained by all students taking the exam in May, whether or not they were sitting the examination for the first time or resitting. The marks attained by students in the August resit should not be taken into account.

(b) the percentage of students attaining an examination mark of 40 or above in the first examination for each of the subjects in the academic year 2007/8

Again, as above, please base calculations on the actual marks attained and limited to the first examination.”

The information provided by the University is published below. The modules may be taken by LLB and  a range of joint law degree programmes: the information is aggregated .
