You’ll learn about the complexities of research, how to conduct a literature review, the range of research methods that exist, how to develop research questions and how to evaluate any ethical implications. The Law Dissertation module at The Open University also covers the writing up process including structuring your dissertation. Throughout you’ll consider sources of information and how information is critically analysed and evaluated to draw valid conclusions.
There is growing professional and commercial demand for highly qualified graduates who have a range of transferable skills. In particular skills gained from postgraduate legal study are highly valued for their relevance and application. This module is particularly useful preparation for environments in which research and the ability to develop persuasive arguments form a significant part of the work, and for any profession that requires skilled graduates who have a demonstrable ability in developing and managing an independent research project.
Universities are keen to admit doctoral research students who have completed most of their research training, finding them better prepared to begin and better able to complete their theses in the required time. This module provides some of that training in research methods and skills for advanced students.
