Contract Law is a compulsory module in the LLB programme. The aim of this module is to enable students to state and apply the rules of the English law of contract dealt with in the course accurately and relevantly, and to make assessments of that law and the scholarship pertaining thereto. The module will enable students to understand the nature of contract and concepts underpinning the subject, and how contract differs from other forms of liability and what the rules relating to the granting of remedies are. It will enable students to compare and contrast that law accurately and relevantly with the equivalent areas of any other legal system.
The module will provide the student with the foundations governing the formation and enforceability of contracts (promise, acceptance and agreement), areas of capacity, intention, legality and certainty of terms. The module includes the remedies available to the parties to a contract and the doctrine of privity of contract. The module will also cover an outline of the law of restitution.
D: An answer which, while predominantly correct in its presentation of material, contains a significant level of error and is therefore not entirely reliable.
E, F: An answer in which the level of error is such that the answer becomes substantially unreliable as a presentation of the subject, there remaining, however, a significant amount of correct material.
B: A comprehensive answer, containing all or most of the material relevant to the question with no or very little irrelevancy, all the material and references being predominantly accurate and correct, with no or very little inaccuracy or error, the whole presented in an argument which, while clear, logical and critical, leaves room for improvement in its construction and presentation. An answer which shows complete competence in the subject.
C: An answer which, while always in the main accurate and correct, fails to distinguish between relevant and irrelevant material and is lacking in criticism. An answer which while reliable with regard to correctness is either not comprehensive or not entirely pertinent.
A*: A truly exceptional answer, which demonstrates complete mastery of the subject matter and also makes a substantial original contribution of a high standard which advances the understanding of the subject. The answer contains all relevant points and arguments, complete with fully supported independent and mature evaluation of the topic, with no errors or irrelevant content. Where relevant, the answer will also evidence an excellent comparative evaluation of the issues concerned. All the material and references (where applicable) are perfectly presented in the answer, and the answer is perfectly constructed and grammatically perfect in English/Welsh. In the case of a dissertation or assignment, the answer would be suitable for publication in a refereed journal.
