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 over a number of years.

Law School ERASMUS students may also refer to the sample LLB dissertations as examples of legal writing.

  • Dissertations may only be view 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.

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