On numerous undergraduate degree programmes students are expected to undertake study of modules which are not perceived as 'core' to their studies. Law pervades many areas of study and there is an increasing need for students on a diverse range of courses to study aspects of the law. Our research focuses on evaluation of the teaching and learning approaches when delivering a module outside of the student’s main degree discipline. The research evaluates issues such as preferred learning styles and perceptions of law in relation to other modules within the student’s degree programme. This paper presents the findings of our research aimed at gaining a deeper understanding of student perceptions to the study of law. However, we believe the findings are relevant to students who study law on diverse other courses, and perhaps also to most students who are required to study aspects of a subject ‘outside’ the main focus of their degree.
