Student reviews

I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 6 years with the OU while studying the Bachelors of Laws (LLB) course. All of the tutors were excellent and knowledgable, and I cannot fault any of them.
Thank you all for your encouragement and support.

This was my first law course and I dived in at level 3. It took me a while to find my footing and my first two TMAs were certainly not spectacular both scoring in the high 60s which were the worst marks I had received for any of my courses up until that point. I was in line for a Grade Pass 3 which was pretty disappointing but I didn't really feel engaged by the subject until the EMA and the topic of art/culture and law which I thoroughly enjoyed and, as a result, managed a Grade Pass 2.

Although the subject matter is interesting in parts and probably less 'dry' than other law courses, I still didn't feel sufficiently excited by the syllabus. I would have preferred more in depth analysis of topics and the interaction/overlap with law. A 60 credit course with 4 or 5 TMAs allowing for greater indepth exploration of the law and its applications within culture & society would have personally been more interesting and engaging.
