The LL.B. (Hons) (Blended) law programme is an innovative and interactive teaching and learning experience, delivered through a combination of online and classroom-based learning. Students studying via blended have increased flexibility in organising their studies.
The LL.B. (Hons) (Blended) programme is fully comparable to the full-time and part-time LL.B. (Hons) (Blended) programmes at Griffith College and only the mode of delivery differs, providing learners with professional or personal commitments, and those living outside of the greater Dublin area with a more flexible offering. This course is validated by QQI at Level 8 on the National Framework of Qualifications and content and assessment are identical to the full-time and part-time LL.B. (Hons) (Blended) programmes. Students visit the Dublin campus on a monthly basis for ‘live’ days for each course, and, they have access to all facilities provided to full-time and part-time students, as well as the option of participating in the wide range of extracurricular activities undertaken by full-time and part-time law students at Griffith College, such as mooting, debating, FLAC and the Irish Innocence Project.
Studying the LL.B. (Hons) via blended learning has the following advantages:
“Blended learning” incorporates weekly video lectures which are uploaded to an online virtual learning platform to be reviewed at learners’ convenience; weekly virtual activities to be completed on topics covered; and fortnightly tutorial-style live “webinars” using the most up-to-date conferencing technology. E-learning is “blended” with “live” Saturday classroom-based workshops, which take place on a monthly basis.
