Hi I’m Aaron, and I’m a third year student at the York Law School [YLS]. I’ve had a great time at York so far, from getting involved in Student Representation to trying out Quidditch in my first week! There are so many opportunities to get involved in a range of sports, societies or work! To … Continue reading A week in the life of a Law student

At the time of writing this post, I have just finished my shift as a Student Ambassador working at one of many upcoming interview days for prospective students at the Law School.

I have had a lot of questions about PBL so I thought I’d go into a bit more depth about what it entails. Example Scenario- recent news article about an employee who has written a “tell all” book about their employer and it is about to be published. The example itself will be about a … Continue reading Problem Based Learning
First Year In first year things are a little different, you only have to do normal Problem Based Learning (PBL) because you don’t have option modules.
