Hi! I'm in my final year and I need help picking my elective topics!

Okay, so I'm thinking of Family Law for my 30 credit module (exam based) and Property Tax for my 15 credit module (coursework based).

However...Property Tax is a research module and has no tutorials/lectures on the substantive law. We are expected to conduct our own extensive research.

I wanted to ask, have any of you studied Property Tax? If so, how did you find it? If not, do you think it is a good topic to pick for my final year elective?

I'm disconcerted with Property Tax because there's no lectures nor tutorials. Everything will be left to us to research for ourselves. Please offer some advice (:


Thank you!!

I haven't done that module (I did do family though, excellent choice) but if you're in your final year you should be able to do your own research and stuff by now. Like it might sound daunting but I'm sure you are more than capable to do that so if you really want to do that module because you like the content then I would say go for it. However, if you're not overly fussed or not confident in your research ability and you don't want to take that risk in your last year then take something else

Im not the best at research, but my uncle said he would help me out (he is a landlord in London and has extensive knowledge. He said he would point me in the right direction and then let me get on with it).

Also, Property Tax is 100% coursework based, and I didn't want another exam (as my other modules are all examination based).

Other 15 credit modules (which are 100% examination) include:
• Law of Financial Crime
• Medical Law

Well it depends on your interests and aims after the LLB obviously but I would also recommend medical law (am doing a master's in it now). Goes very well with family - lots of overlap e.g. surrogacy/reproduction, rights of children. But if you're planning to go into something commercial then financial crime or property tax are probably more useful choices

I assume this is BPP as this module was on offer when I studied there. I didn't do it, but I have to say that tax doesn't strike me as the sort of module that really suits being assessed by an independent research essay.

Hi guys, thank you all for your replies! Yes, I'm studying at BPP

I just realised, I need to pick an extra 15 credit module, so, along with Family Law and Property Tax, I think I'll be choosing Law of Financial Crime. I don't think Property Tax will be assessed by an independent research essay, we just have to research the topic ourselves. I think it's like a self-teach module.

It will be assessed by coursework (and no exams). The coursework will probably be a question which we must answer.

Hi! (: Thanks for your reply!

I didn't want to pick Medical Law as that is assessed by examination, and I didn't want all examination modules. At least with coursework, I can start it way in advance and work on it at my own pace. I think I will pick Family Law, Property Tax and Law of Financial Crime (:
