What is the workload like and what topics have you done so far. I’m thinking of doing law but I’m not sure if I would like the course. Is there a lot of presentations groupwork and how many hours of lectures and stuff do you do each week

3hrs of public law lectures, a one hour tutorial a fortnight
Sane for foundations of tort and contract
' understanding law ', lectures, 4hrs a week but that is over now and only for the first semester, 2hr seminar each week also

For tutorials, as there are only 8, of you, you have to know your stuff so that's 6hrs prep+ per tutorial, can get away with less for seminars
Too much reading that it is impossible to do it all really, have to skim and read the bits that apply to tutorial questions more thoroughly
We have had an optional contract and public essay so far and a compulsory tort essay, we have group contract essays each contract tutorial too, you have to present in seminars but it is no more than 5, 10mins.
It is manageable though, so many resources online from the uni that you don't have to worry about going to the library really, textbooks cost a lot though haha
Want basic info on the topics or are you familiar with them?
Hope this helps
