Content
The objective of the two dissertation units together is the production of a research dissertation of around 12,000 words on a topic of the student's choosing (in consultation with a supervisor) relevant to the field of Business Law. This research is carried out under the supervision of a staff member who discusses issues relating to the research with the student, reads and comments on drafts, and provides overall guidance.
Outcomes
Students are able to (on successful completion of the two dissertation units) produce a significant project demonstrating an appropriate level of mastery of theoretical constructs and, further or in the alternative, the operation of those constructs. The work shows independence of thought, consistent organisational skills, and developed argumentation and analysis.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) a written proposal and presentation of the proposal at a methodology seminar and (2) a final dissertation. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
