Course programme

Part 1: Part 1 will involve the study of 120 credits. September intake: Part 1 will be undertaken in the period of September to June. Teaching will mostly be seminar based which will promote group and individual interaction, which also ensures that every individual candidate is encouraged to contribute to discussions. Seminar based teaching enables lecturers and candidates to discuss issues and investigate topics in greater depth, develops critical thinking and solution based learning skills in candidates, whilst also allowing the course teachers to monitor closely each individual’s progress. Emphasis will be placed on the use of expert Procurement Law academic staff and expert practitioners from leading law firms and public sector organisations. Case studies will be used to help the candidates to contextualise active procurement legal problems against a background of realistic scenarios with the opportunity to apply the relevant rules of law that they will have been lectured on. Particular emphasis will be placed on the interaction between national practices and European procurement law principles and jurisprudence. Candidates will be expected to have prepared essential reading on case law, legislation, and other procurement rules prior to the seminar, and will discuss the legal issues raised by the reading in an interactive fashion in order that the class can engage in problem solving facilitated by the lecturer. Further reading will be recommended after each seminar to progress and further the candidate’s Procurement Law knowledge and skills.
