How will I be assessed?

Assessment of this course is split into two parts:

  • A written assignment to be submitted during the course (20%).
  • A 4-hour open book examination (80%).

Details of the assessment are as follows:

  • The assignment. This assessment is not on a pass or fail basis. The mark achieved will contribute up to 20% of the final mark.
  • The examination. This assessment is on a pass or fail basis. The mark achieved will contribute up to 80% of the final mark. Candidates who fail the examination will be required to re-sit the examination.
  • The overall assessment is based upon the combined marks of the assignment and examination. Candidates must achieve a minimum overall mark of 70% to pass the course.

Marks for the examination will be divided into two parts: Part A – Technical Merit; Part B – Judicial Merit. Candidates must achieve a minimum of 70% in each part.

The assignment and examination are both Award writing exercises. The Award must be reasoned and enforceable. Any candidate that submits an unenforceable Award will be deemed as a fail and awarded zero marks.

The examination is open book with no restrictions, which means candidates are permitted to take any materials they wish into the examination. The examination consists of a final Award submitted on a dispute presented in a scenario in two parts, the first provided by email approximately two weeks before the examination date, the second provided on the stipulated examination date.

Results are dispatched to candidates normally eight to twelve weeks from the date of the submission of the assignment or examination.
