Dissertation FHS

This course aims to help develop and foster students’ research skills, and deepen their expertise and insight through close study and analysis of a chosen legal theme or issue.

The dissertation must go beyond the FHS syllabus content in taught core courses and any other FHS option that the student is taking, and it may not overlap with Jurisprudence mini-options.

The Dissertation Option will involve four components: 1) research seminars for the entire cohort with the course convenors, 2) supervision involving meetings and exchanges with allocated Faculty members, 3) presentation of initial research findings, and 4) independent research by the student. The fourth component will be the dominant element of the dissertation experience, but the other components are also integral to the Option.
