The word limit is strictly 1500 words. This includes the footnotes.Assignments are prescribed to ensure that you take the opportunity to refine your techniques of research, analysis and expression, and to give you feedback on them. It is an integral part of the discipline of studying law that tasks are performed in a responsible and timely manner. Adhering to deadlines is an important aspect of this. Also, to be fair to all students, there must be a substantially equal amount of time available for each assessment task. Very early in each session you should make sure you will be able to adhere to the prescribed submission dates for compulsory tasks. Assignment questions and due dates in all subjects can be found under Course Materials on the LEC Webcampus. Once you have registered online with the Law Extension Committee, you will have full access to all the facilities on the Webcampus. Presentation of written work is also a vital part of a professional discipline. Please note that where an assignment has more than one part, all parts must be attempted. As a general rule, students who do not attempt to answer all questions in an assignment will not achieve a satisfactory result. Assignment results will contribute 20% to the examination mark in each subject. With regard to assessment and eligibility criteria relating to assignments, see page 18 of this guide. 3. ASSIGNMENT POLICY Assignments Assignments are used to assess eligibility. Students are expected to achieve at least a pass mark of 50% in assignments to be eligible to sit for examinations. However, a category of “deemed eligible” has been introduced to offer students whose assignment mark is between 40-49% an opportunity to sit for the examination. In these circumstances students are often advised not to sit. A mark below 40% means a student is not eligible to sit for the examination. Assignments as part of the LPAB’s Examinations Assignment results contribute 20% to the final mark in each subject. The LEC administers the setting and marking of assignments. The LEC engages the LPAB’s examiners to assess or supervise the assessment of assignments. Submission Assignments must be submitted by 11:59pm on the due date unless an extension has been granted. Extensions must be requested by email prior to the due date. Specific supporting evidence must be provided. Assignments that are more than ten days late will not be accepted. Late assignments that have not been granted an extension attract a penalty of one mark out of 20, or 5% of the total marks available, per day. 9 Prior to the examination, assignments will be returned to students and results posted on students’ individual results pages of the LEC Webcampus. Students are responsible for checking their results screen and ascertaining their eligibility to sit for the examination. Assessment Assignments are assessed according to the “Assignment Grading and Assessment Criteria” outlined on pages 17–18 of this guide. Please note that these are more elaborated than the gradings used for final results.
