The Law Library holds a number of past LLB and LLM dissertations which can be consulted by Newcastle Law School students—whether it is to see what is expected of a dissertation submission, or simply to see the structure and presentation of one. The examples held are a selection of those which have received the highest marks or prizes over a number of years.

  • Dissertations may only be viewed by Newcastle University students and staff and only on production of a Smartcard
  • All dissertations must be signed for
  • Dissertations must not be removed from the Law Library
  • Photocopying or photographing of a dissertation is not allowed without the written permission of the author

Please note: as these examples are selected from a range of submission dates they may not be OSCOLA-compliant. All students engaged in a Newcastle Law School dissertation module are advised to refer to the OSCOLA Referencing Guide.

All Law School and Law exchange programme students may also refer to the sample LLB dissertations as examples of legal writing, or we advise accessing the North East Law Review for published sample essays.

Please ask for the sample dissertations at the Law Library Help Desk and remember to bring a valid Smartcard.
