Colombo / Kandy


The Staffordshire University LLB focusses not only on giving students an in-depth knowledge of law, but also on developing in them the skills and competencies needed for the legal profession. To this end, the programme comprises of modules that provide foundational and specialized knowledge of law, as well as modules which aim to develop skills such as research, negotiation, public speaking, presentation, communication, and team work.

Year 1 of the programme provides knowledge of the foundation principles of law, and develops basic legal skills through a set of core modules. Year 2 of the programme focuses on furthering knowledge on core legal principles and also provides students an opportunity to develop a specialization by studying an optional module either in the area of Business Law or in Human Rights Law. In the final year, students will study one core module and will have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of current and industry relevant optional modules taking into consideration their interests and career aspirations.
Teaching and learning is based primarily on lectures, tutorials and workshops. Whilst lectures are very important, there is great emphasis on tutorials and workshops that promote peer learning as well as independent learning. Workshops take a variety of forms: discussions, individual and group presentations, or tasks such as interviewing and advising a client. These develop both legal knowledge and skills such as analytical thinking and problem solving.
