Aims

To fulfil the University┬┐s academic aims and strategic objectives and in particular to broaden and enhance its portfolio of legal programmes and to teach, train and educate its students in such a way that they are fully equipped to enter the world of work as solicitors. The Department through a Centre for Legal Practice aims to stimulate enterprise and improve training and offer a rigorous and practical outcome to academic law.
The Law Department has at present no postgraduate provision in legal professional education. The Department recognised the need to establish a unit which will deliver the Legal Practice Course and which will fulfil the aims of cooperation and collaboration as a part of Legal Wales.
The Electives modules deliver this requirement in the context of three electives chosen from a group of Electives and enabling students to create a package of specialisms which fit their interests and the sort of solicitors┬┐ practice they wish to enter. This Elective module - Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence┬┐ delivers this in the context of Personal Injury.

The module will be delivered in an interactive manner and the students will be taken through both a Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence action step by step in order that they are familiar with the procedural steps in both types of action.
