The LLB Hons degree programme aims to equip students with legal knowledge and skills which will be a
foundation to endless career options as law professionals. Students who undertake the LLB programme will have an opportunity to undergo formal legal education which is comprehensive and robust. The first year introduces students to critical legal thinking and legal reasoning. To enhance knowledge in the discipline of law, subsequent years will offer a wide range of substantive law courses, including specialised electives. 

The LLB is expected to increase legal professionals in Seychelles. Formal legal education and legal professionals are imperative in order to support the aspirations of the national development plan from both a human capital perspective, and aspirations to enhance good governance for peace, prosperity and sustainable development. Law graduates are instrumental in this regard.

Mode of Delivery

The primary delivery mode will be in person and virtual lectures. Additional self-study will also be required outside of contact hours.

  • For each course, there are both lecturer-led and student-centred sessions.
  • Each course is delivered over 15 weeks, in weekly contact sessions of 3 hours. Each
    timetabled contact session comprises 3 hours of lecture and 1 hour of tutorial every other
    week.
  • The modes of delivery may vary among courses. Some courses may need more practical
    problem solving than others. Depending on the nature of the topic, more emphasis may be
    placed on practical activities relating to the concept being learnt and its application to the
    real world. As a result, the lecturer-led sessions of the programme are loaded with group
    work, discussions, case studies and potential role play. Comparative analysis of theory and
    current practices is also a common mode of delivery used.
  • The students are also expected to carry out directed and independent learning activities
    including further reading, assignments, problem solving and research for discussions during
    the contact sessions.
  • Tutorials are available once after every two weeks. They may be scheduled for individual
    students or groups of students with common needs.
  • Typical lecture resources are: a classroom, computer, a projector, flip charts, writing board
    and markers.
  • Based on Seychelles’ mixed jurisdiction, comparative law is encouraged to be taught in each
    module under at least one topic.
