It seeks to provide a sound, contemporary and relevant education in law for those students who wish to become professionally qualified. The LLB (Hons) aims to offer students the opportunity to select for themselves a portfolio of modules that matches their career aspirations and interests, and provides a succinct practical insight into the Mauritian legal landscape with two modules of Mauritian Law, each tailored to cover the legal principles under the Mauritian Civil Code and elements of the Penal Code.
