Hardest compulsary LLB module?Watch
It would be good if current second and third years would rank the difficulty of their modules, see if there is a consensus.

I hated hated hated Land Law, but I think that was because I found it incredibly dull rather than particularly difficult. I know that a lot of people have real difficulty with equity and trusts but I found that it eventually all clicked into place and wasn't overly troublesome in the end.
As a Scottish student, my requirements are slightly different, but I'd have to say EU law - boring complicated and byzantine.
That said, I found studying Byzantine law quite interesting too.
I find that module HELL.
Contract is actually pretty easy, once you get your head around it. You simply need to work out in your heads what the seperate requirements for things are, and then work it through systematically. Its just seperating the actual rules from pointless ****.
e.g. a contract: what do I need?
- Agreement - Smith v Hughes
- Intent to create legal relations - Balfour v Balfour
Alright, Misrepresentations. What do they allow you to do? Claim damages for breach of contract; rescind in particularly difficult cases.
requirements for a misrep? 1,2,3,4 BAM
Equity is by FAR the hardest at my uni. 2 reasons. One, it is the kind of subject where the courts pretty much just do what they feel like and then justify it with ridiculous flowery rhetoric. Once you realise its fact, the law of trusts itself is no problem. Equity courses which are just the law of trusts are easy once you understand this. Second, the people that teach my course are all restitution lawyers who think that the law of Trusts doesn't really exist, and its all really restitution, so the course is focused rather broadly on this.
I hadn't mentioned it here as although it was compulsory at my uni (and i believe several others) it isn't a compulsory module in the sense that you need it for it to be a qualifying degree.
My brain just doesn't work in the way a brain needs to work to succeed at philosophy; my best marks were always in black letter law subjects. I found it impossible to come up with my own ideas for Juris, whereas I never struggled with that in any other subject. And some of it was just so random! (Critical Legal Studies? I still have no idea what the hell that was all about.)

However the hardest module for me is Tort. It is a really fun module but as a first year and as someone that hasn't done Law before it can be a bit of a pain, case loaded module. Pure Economic Loss and Misstatements are freaking me out.....
