Every effort has been made to ensure that information presented in this handbook is correct

The School of Law
A SOAS Law degree is a passport to a wide range of careers. SOAS Law students are
equipped with a sound knowledge of English law and, through SOAS' wealth of regional
expertise, gain valuable insight into comparative and international law. Students can choose the
LLB pathway or take a BA degree with Law and another subject, including a wide range of
languages.
The specialist knowledge we offer at SOAS enables students to fine-tune their programme in
light of their career ambitions. All students are expected to develop arrange of transferable skills,
including critical judgement, problem solving and the ability to formulate sound written and oral
arguments. Our degree courses offer students the analytical tools to understand, interpret and
explain complex matters. As a result, SOAS Law students follow many professional paths (see
Graduate Opportunities box below). They enter the legal profession in the UK and overseas,
pursue careers in business, government and the third sector, or progress to postgraduate
education all over the world.
The School of Law offers a qualifying law degree under the rules of the Law Society and the
Bar Council of England and Wales. In addition to providing students with expert coverage of
English law, the School also boasts an unrivalled concentration of specialists in the laws of
Asian, African and Middle Eastern countries, with additional expertise in the areas of
comparative law, human rights law, transnational commercial law, environmental law and
international law.
Lecturers in the School are acknowledged experts in their fields, writing a number of the leading
textbooks which you will use in your studies, and they remain at the forefront of fostering both
professional and interdisciplinary study. In addition to the large variety of publications produced
by individual members of staff, the School of Law leads and edits a number of influential
academic publications including: The Journal of African Law, The Yearbook of Islamic and
Middle Eastern Law, The Journal of Comparative Law, Muslim World Journal of Human Rights.
Staff also maintain close links with professional practice and have first-hand knowledge of the
latest developments in business, government, non-government and international organisations.
Each year, the School also attracts a number of world-renowned practitioners and scholars as
research fellows or visiting instructors.
The School has long been recognised as a world-class centre for the study of and research into
transnational, international and comparative law in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Today, its
staff carry on that tradition in a new, globalised context and contribute to the development of the
vital disciplines of law for the 21st century.
In addition to students from the UK, The School also attracts students from across the world (50
per cent of SOAS students come from overseas) and is home to a thriving research community,
including the Centre for East Asian Law (CEAL), the Centre for Law and Conflict (CLC), the
Centre for Ethnic Minority Studies (CEMS), the Law, Environment and Development Centre
(LEDC), the Centre for the Study of Colonialism, Empire and International Law (CCEIL), and
the Centre of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law (CIMEL). In every area, SOAS courses are
3


designed not only to introduce students to the general fields of law that relate both to England
and Wales and to the developing world, but also to an understanding as to how generic legal
structures and processes may operate in both Western and non-Western social and cultural
settings, with particular attention to the legal systems of the developing world.
The undergraduate body is a valued and critical component in the School's community of
scholars. Much is expected from students, who are required to contribute to the life of the
Department as active learners and participants. Students should expect to work some 40 hours
each week during term. This includes attendance, participation and preparation for lectures,
tutorials, seminars and moots. It will rarely be easy; but we believe requiring students to work
hard in a rigorous but supportive environment is the best way to enable each of you to achieve
your potential and get the most from your, and our, investment in your future.

Languages
Nearly all SOAS degree programmes can include language learning as a
credit-bearing part of the degree structure. As a SOAS student, this is
how you complement your studies of history, culture, politics, society,
linguistics or economics with the study of an Asian or African language.

Otherwise, the SOAS Language Entitlement gives further opportunities for
SOAS students to include language learning among their activities at
SOAS at no additional charge.

Help and Advice: Student Support
The School of Law has several administrative systems in place for the undergraduate law
programme, including the provision of pastoral care. There are many different sources of
help and advice available to students: it is very important that you make use of the support
systems if you need to do so. Small, easily solved problems may grow rapidly into big,
difficult ones if nothing is done about them. Such difficulties are particularly common in the
first year.
Student Department Officers
Each Department has a specific Student Department Officer: an administrative member of
staff who should be the first port of call for administrative issues pertaining to your studies.
They will be able to answer queries relating to your timetable, class arrangements,
coursework assignments and examinations, among other areas. The Student Department
Officer for the School of Law is; Juliet Ssentongo. To submit your enquiry, please
sign in to SID using your SOAS student reference number and password.
Student Information Desk (SID)
Sign In to SID (online Student Information Desk)
The Student Information Desk (SID) aims to help students make the very best of their
time at SOAS by providing a high-quality information and enquiry service which is
accessible to all students.
SID is the first point of contact for advice and support for current students from
Registry, Fees and Scholarships, Exams, Graduation, Faculties and more.
If the question is more specialist, we will help you as much as we can before we put
you in direct contact with the person or team at SOAS who can help you with your
query.
To get started, sign in to SID using your SOAS student reference number and
password.
UG Law Programme Convenors
The Undergraduate Law Programme Convenor is responsible for the administration of your
degree programmes as a whole, but not for pastoral care or the matters dealt with by the
personal advisors. The convenor always is the first point of contact for issues affecting your
degree as a whole and will be the main contact point at the beginning of the academic year,
until you have been allocated your personal advisor. In particular, the convenor will deal with
course choices, course changes, degree transfers. It is unlikely that you will need to contact
the Programme Convenor unless you have a complaint or some other serious issue arises,
for example if you wish to change your degree. There is a separate Programme Convenor
for the Senior Status LLB degree.
Personal Advisors
All Law students are assigned a personal advisor from the School of Law teaching staff. If at
any time you find you are experiencing academic or pastoral difficulties and wish to talk to
someone do not hesitate to get in touch with your personal advisor by email, telephone or in
person. They will either deal with the matter or direct you to other people qualified to assist
such as the Academic Development Directorate and Student Services. You will be allocated
a personal advisor shortly after the beginning of term. To find your allocated personal
adviser please refer to the UG Law Student Information Point on BLE.
7


Particular matters dealt with by your Personal Advisor include providing your first, and if
there is more than one, your principal reference. If a second reference is necessary, this will
be provided by the year tutors. The second reference will normally be in standard form,
confirming your general level of performance. In exceptional circumstances, such as
applications for prestigious scholarships, more, or fuller, references may be necessary. If
you need such references, consult your personal advisor or the programme convenor, or
speak to a course convenor with whom you work well.
You will be required to visit your Personal Advisor once a term so that you get to know each
other and to ensure that your Personal Advisor is up to date with your progress. If you do
this it will be much easier to approach your Personal Advisor if a problem arises as he/she
will be better equipped to assist and will be able to give a much fuller and better informed
principal reference.
The Year Tutors
If you cannot reach your personal advisor, or if you encounter any problems that you do not
want to discuss with your personal advisor (for example, a problem related to a course
taught by your personal advisor) please contact the year tutor. You may also come into
contact with the Year Tutor if you have attendance problems as they are responsible for
monitoring and following up on attendance in cooperation with the Course Convenors and
Personal Advisors.
UG Careers Tutor
In co-operation with the school's Careers Service, the School of Law UG Careers Tutor gives
advice to students about jobs, placements and volunteering. The Careers Tutor also convenes
the School of Law Careers Seminars, which usually take place Monday evenings during term
time.
Student Representatives
Student Representatives are elected to represent each year group. The representatives
attend School of Law departmental meetings to raise matters of concern to the
undergraduate students, participate in departmental discussions and to report back on
Departmental business these meetings happen around once a term. Representatives also
attend the Staff-Student Consultative Committee (SSCC) which usually meets shortly before
the School of Law meetings. These meetings are composed of Student Representatives
from years 1, 2 and 3, the Senior Status LLB Student Representative the three Year Tutors,
and the Undergraduate Tutor.
Timetable
Students should check the up-to-date undergraduate timetable by
referring to www.soas.ac.uk/timetable or by scanning the barcode
opposite). If you find that your core courses clash you should consult
your Student Department Officer for advice.
Term Dates
The SOAS term dates can be found on the SOAS website at
http://www. soas.ac. uk/about/keydates/.

Studying Law at SOAS
LLB Law Single Honours
Law may be studied as a single subject degree (LLB/Senior Status LLB) or in combination
with another subject (BA).
Law (Senior Status) is a two-year LLB for advanced students (those with a degree in
another discipline). It Is primarily designed for graduates who wish to obtain a Qualifying Law
Degree (QLD) but will also be of interest to those non-law graduates who have an interest in
reading law as a second academic degree. Unlike other institutions, the SOAS Senior Status
LLB also provides students with an overview of legal systems in Africa and Asia to provide a
truly global Senior Status LLB.
Those wishing to pursue a career in law usually opt for the LLB, which is recognised by the
Law Society and the Bar for the purpose of completion of the academic stage of legal
training.
The SOAS LLB is normally recognised as a Qualifying Law Degree for the purpose of the
completion of legal training in England and Wales, provided the required subjects have been
taken and passed. It is also recognised for similar purposes in a number of other
Commonwealth jurisdictions. The relevant bodies may have requirements for recognition
over and above the School's criteria for the award of the degree. It is the responsibility of
students intending to seek exemption from the academic stage of legal training to satisfy
themselves that their qualifications will meet the requirements of the relevant professional
bodies.
BA Hons Two Subject Degree
The BA two-subject degree is designed primarily to allow you to gain insight into certain
arears of legal knowledge, rather than lead you towards professional legal practice. It is very
unlikely that you will be able to take the number of subjects necessary to gain exemption
from the academic stage of legal training. If you wish to qualify as a barrister or solicitor you
should apply for the LLB.

Student Regulations
Definitive regulations governing the award of undergraduate degrees can be found online at
http://www.soas.ac.uk/registry/degreeregulations/.
Class attendance requirements
In order to benefit fully from their courses, students are expected to
attend all relevant and/or required classes, which include, as
appropriate to the course, lectures, tutorials, seminars, language
classes, and practical sessions. The minimum class attendance
requirement for all courses within the School is 80%. Non-attendance
by students can result in exclusion from exams and ultimately being withdrawn from their
programme of study.
Coursework submission
All coursework must be submitted on Turnitin via BLE by 23.59 on the day of submission.
Individual assignment deadlines can be found on your course BLE pages.
Once the deadline has passed coursework cannot be withdrawn and resubmitted.
Ensure you allow sufficient time for your work to upload onto Turnitin. Any work submitted
after the 23.59 deadline will automatically receive a late submission penalty of 2 % for every
day it is late after the deadline. Therefore do not leave it until the last minute to submit
your work.
Once you have submitted your work, you will receive a receipt from Turnitin. If you do not
receive this within minutes of the submission, or you are experiencing problems uploading
your assignment, please sign in to SID to submit a copy of your essay.
Please note School rules do not allow appeals against academic judgement, only
against process.
Late submission of coursework
Extensions cannot be agreed in advance from a tutor or lecturer. However, if your
assignment is late due to illness or another certifiable reason (i.e. illness/bereavement), you
should complete a Late submission of coursework form (which can be found on the
School of Law Information Point on BLE) and submit this with accompanying evidence to the
Faculty Office (Room R201). This will then be considered by the Mitigating Panel and, if
accepted, any marks deducted for late submission will be returned.
The School deadline for final submission of coursework is 16.00 on the Friday immediately
before the beginning of the May/June examination period of the academic year in which the
course is taken. Any assignments submitted after this deadline will not be marked.
Please note that you must undertake all elements of assessment and examination
prescribed for each course you are taking and must submit sufficient work for each
assessment to enable it to be assessed or examined. You may not be allowed to sit your
exams in case of missing coursework.
15


Coursework word limits
Coursework assignments which exceed the set word limit will be penalised. Individual
assignment word limits can be found on the relevant course pages on the BLE
(http://ble.soas.ac.uk/).
Plagiarism
You should note that plagiarism i.e. the presentation of another person's thoughts or words
as though they were your own is an examination and/or assessment offence, and is dealt
with under the School's Regulations for proceedings in respect of assessment and
examination offences. More information can be found under the General Regulations for
Students, section 22 (pages 14 and 15).
Marking Criteria
Please see below for the marking criteria (competence standards) for coursework
assignments. These criteria for all SOAS undergraduate programmes draw upon the
following minimum "core" criteria, which are applicable to the assessment of most or all
assignments:
understanding of the subject;
utilisation of proper academic [or other] style (e.g. citation of references, or use of
proper legal style for court reports, etc.);
relevance of material selected and of the arguments proposed;
planning and organisation;
logical coherence;
critical evaluation;
comprehensiveness of research;
evidence of synthesis;
innovation / creativity / originality.
The language used must be of a sufficient standard to permit assessment of the above
criteria.
These minimum core criteria form a part of the School's core academic standards, applied to
all coursework and as such they would not usually be subject to any modification, even as a
"reasonable adjustment" to the needs of a specific disabled person.
