Please read the following information carefully as it contains important information regarding module choices for students studying on the LLB LAW DTP LAW programme. If you need any assistance please contact the Student Experience Office.

Important information for Malaysian students who wish to study the Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP)

If you are intending to study for the CLP you must have studied a recognised law degree for a minimum of 3 academic years. You must take a minimum of 12 law subjects, of which you must pass the 6 core subjects: Law of Contract, Law of Torts, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Land Law, and Equity and Trusts. Each of these subjects should be studied over one academic year. 

It is recommended that you take Advanced Contract, Advanced Tort, Advanced Constitutional Law, Advanced Criminal Law and Justice, Advanced Land Law and Advanced Equity & Trusts to satisfy core requirements. You can take these modules at Level 2 and are permitted to take one of these modules at Level 3. (If you are a direct entry student you will already be taking these options between your original University and the core modules in your LLB DTP programme).

Please choose your level of study from the tabs on the left where you will find a full list of module choices and guidance regarding which and how many modules you should choose for each semester.

To help you make your choices you can read an outline of each module choice option.

Add/Drop: Module Choices FAQs

When will I get the timetable for modules for next year?2019-01-24T12:00:52+00:00

We are not able to confirm the timetable until the week before teaching commences. Things like seminar groups are subject to change during the first 3 weeks of term due to add/drops – we may have to move students around to ensure all students have a non-clashing seminar group.

What happens if I forget to add modules or don’t add enough before the deadline?2019-01-24T12:07:36+00:00

Should you miss the deadline for module choice you will need to wait for the system to re-open during add/drop.  Please make every effort to ensure you add enough modules in time as you may not get the modules you want otherwise.

What happens if I try to add a module that isn’t running.2018-04-06T10:44:25+00:00

It will be rejected. Unfortunately the module choice system cannot stop you from adding a module that isn’t running, it is your responsibility to check if it is running or not.

Can I use the module directory to choose what module to add?2018-04-06T10:43:58+00:00

The module directory includes every module that has ever run (even if it is not running now) as we are not allowed to remove modules from it. Therefore you should not rely solely on the module directory as you may choose modules that are not running. It is better to refer to the law students area and the information sent out by law-seo@sheffield.ac.uk.

Can I take modules at a different level to my year group (eg. a level 3 modules in year 2).2018-04-06T10:42:26+00:00

We do not recommend you do this because it will appear on your transcript and future employers may question why you didn’t take 3rd year Law modules on a Law degree, but it is possible:

  • Only 1st years can take level 1 modules.
  • 2nd years could take one level 3 module, however, if you don’t take enough FolK modules in 2nd year this may force you to take a 2nd year module in 3rd year. We recommend taking all 2nd year modules in 2nd year.
  • Final years could take one level 2 modules, however, this will show up on your transcript and potential employers/degree providers may question why you took a 2nd year module in 3rd year – we strongly recommend you take level 2 modules in 2nd year (and get all your Foundations of Legal Knowledge modules completed) and take all level 3 modules in 3rd year.
Can I take modules from other departments?2018-04-06T10:42:56+00:00

Depending on your programme regulations this may be possible if you are allowed to take unrestricted credits in 2nd or 3rd year (use the programme regulations finder to check this), however this will be subject to:

  • modules being available and accepting students from other Schools
  • approval from both the receiving School and the Law School

We recommend caution with this as all modules you take will appear on your transcript and potential employers/course providers may question why you didn’t take Law modules on a Law degree.

Can I take post graduate modules.2018-04-06T10:42:00+00:00

No, there are no circumstances in which undergraduates can take postgraduate modules.

Can you change my choices or enter choices for me?2019-01-24T11:58:29+00:00

No, module choices is a student-led system, we can only accept/reject requests.  Should we reject one of your choices you will need to submit a replacement one.

I want to make a change to my module choices – what do I do?2019-01-24T11:54:35+00:00

If it’s before the module choice deadline you can request that we reject a module choice by emailing law-seo@sheffield.ac.uk but this is only possible during the pending stage, if the choice has been approved we are not able to reject it.

If it is after the module choice deadline: you will have to wait until the add/drop opens at the start of the relevant semester. There are no exceptions to this: module choice is a central process and once it is closed we cannot accept or reject anything new.

I’ve realised I don’t meet the prerequisites for a module I’ve chosen – what do I do?2019-01-24T11:50:06+00:00

You can request that we reject a module choice by emailing law-seo@sheffield.ac.uk but this is only possible during the pending stage if the choice has been approved we are not able to reject it.

Will you reject a module if I don’t meet the requisites for it?2018-04-06T10:39:52+00:00

Not automatically – it is your responsibility to check you meet the requisites for a module. As we process thousands of module choice requests, we are not able to go through every module choice request and check you meet the prerequisites.

What if module availability changes after I have submitted my choices?2019-01-24T11:56:51+00:00

If you want to take a different module, you can request that we reject one of your module choices so that you can add a new one by emailing law-seo@sheffield.ac.uk

What are my responsibilities when making module choices?2018-04-06T10:38:16+00:00

BEFORE you submit module choices it is your responsibility to check the following things:

  1. Check the module is running (using the info in the law students area module choice page and info sent to you by law-seo@sheffield.ac.uk, not using the module directory/module choice system)
