The common law of England and Wales is one of the major global legal traditions. This MOOC will give you an introduction to this influential legal system including its history, constitutional background, sources and institutions. You’ll learn about the different ways in which laws are made and interpreted, the English court system and the increasing importance of European Union and human rights law. Now is an especially exciting time to be learning about English common law, given the potential changes that lie ahead in today’s political, economic and social environment – all these pose challenges to and opportunities for the law. Each week we’ll focus on one aspect of English common law, using video lectures, readings, discussion questions and activities to enable you to learn about and evaluate key issues. Whether undertaken as a standalone course, or as preparation for the University of London’s world-class LLB degree, you will find this course interesting and stimulating. Please note that participation in or completion of this online course will not confer academic credit for University of London programmes....

A comprehensive introduction to English Law. The lecturers outline things in a very clear manner and the readings cover the topic well. The quizzes are quite demanding. It is a very enjoyable course.

This course is a well designed one. It provides us a good comprehensive guide on the legal practice in England. I'm grateful to the designers of the course and 2 lecturers for presenting us this.

A strong course with some great ideas in it. I would have liked to see a more explicit and embedded recognition of the rule of law throughout.

Confused as to why participation with peers was optional throughout the course but compulsory at the end. I am extremely disappointed that this was the method used to determine if someone will receive a certificate or not. I enrolled in the above because I wanted the knowledge but had absolutely no interest in interacting with any other student. Yes, the overview of the course speaks about quizzes, peer review etc. but it is unconscionable of you to make participation with peers optional from the beginning of the course but make it compulsory at the end. If in the first instance, this would be compulsory, I would have withdrawn from the course.

I really enjoyed doing the course but my inability to get my certificate has left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I will not make the mistake of signing up for any other course.

Please update your questions for End of Week Quiz 6. The EU questions are in relation to elections in 2014. There was an election in 2019.

I've never taken the course, or signed up for it. I have no interest in this course. I write to Coursera and get it deleted from my profile, then it goes a couple of weeks and gets added again. The course keeps coming back like a bad venereal disease. So I decided to give it a bad rating. Maybe by doing that it won't get added to me again. It's a shame that people have to resort to such desperate tactics to get deleted from a course.
