(b) If you have a degree in a discipline other than law, you must take the foundational law course(s) in your first year to gain the background knowledge which is essential for the more advanced courses in the programme.
(c) If you are interested in writing a dissertation, please see here for related information.
(d) When your course choices are saved online, the system will prompt you to select up to three extra “back-up courses”. You are strongly encouraged to enter back-up course selections – most elective courses have fixed quotas, which means that the first-choice courses you have selected do not guarantee a place on those courses. If you do not select a back-up course and you are unsuccessful getting into your first-choice course, you will effectively fall to the back of the queue in terms of course selection priority.
(e) You may use the online course system to modify your choice of courses before the end of the course selection period. The General Office will begin to process enrolment requests only after the system is closed.
(f) Priority in an oversubscribed course is generally given to students who have properly registered for the course (see (d) above) and who need that course to fulfil syllabus requirements.
(g) The General Office will confirm your enrolments by email at the end of August.
