    Our courses are taught by staff who are active researchers and able to supervise research degrees (PhD and MPhil) in most fields of applied and professional ethics. Particular interests include: the ethics of biotechnology; commercial exploitation of the human body; the concept of eugenics; public health ethics; ethics and children; ethics and mental health; ethics and addiction; ethics of intellectual property; ethics of risk; ethics of resource allocation; and research ethics.

    Studying Law at University


    You are taught by a combination of lectures and seminars (also known as tutorials when smaller in size). However, class contact time is only a small part of what you should be doing. The rest of your time should be spent in private study, reading the materials your lectures point you towards, using the online learning resources and preparing for your seminar discussions. You will not succeed in law if you do not do this private study.

    A good introductory text to studying Law is A. Bradney et al, How to Study Law, (5th edn.) (London: Sweet & Maxwell, 2005)


    A lecture involves the lecturer talking to the whole year group for usually 2 hours per week per module. (You will therefore have about 6 hours of lectures per week for law.) The purpose of lectures is to give you basic information about each subject and direct you to the main issues. You will need to take effective notes on what the lecturer says. Taking notes does NOT mean writing everything down word for word - see Note-taking!

    Lectures cannot possibly, in the time available, cover everything you need to know and the format of a lecture means that it is not the ideal way to help students evaluate or critique the subject area. Instead, it can only highlight the main issues which you must supplement with further reading. Lectures should therefore be seen as signposting your own further study.
