Legal Writing and Advocacy
May 16, 2012 5:01 PM Subscribe
I was wondering if any mefiers could help advise me on potentially choosing a certain module for my llb (undergraduate law) option.
I was thinking of choosing the legal writing and advocacy option, but I am not sure.
Has anyone any idea of what is usually expected in a module such as this? It strikes me as an option very similar that provided in American law schools. How are these usually assessed? The naive bone in me is entertaining the prospect of a slightly less harsh marking criteria compared to the substantive core modules I shall be studying as well; but I could be wrong.
My course book mentions the break down of the module as follows:
Legal Writing and Advocacy:
- Reflective Learning Journal (40%)
- Response to Consultation Document (30%)
- Oral Presentation 1 - (15%)
- Oral Presentation 2 - (15%)
I'm currently very apprehensive, mostly because I have an anxiety condition that has been the bane of my existence for very long. In fact, it has affected most of my schooling and work in the past (or I have continued to let it). However, I sincerely would like to do the above module and hopefully slay the beast in the process.

I shall be very grateful if anyone could share some insights and maybe resources.
