Submission of research papers written in conjunction with 300- and 400-level LAWS papers.
If you are admitted by invitation, this means that in the year after you are admitted
to the Honours programme, you must submit at least two pieces of legal research in
conjunction with your 300- and 400-level papers and the research and writing programme
in the same year (you may count only one piece of research and writing per paper for
this purpose). The best two of these, taken together, must average B+ or better.
If you are planning to spend all or most of that year on subjects other than Law, see the Honours Co-ordinator before you accept the invitation to join the Honours programme. There is a discretion to postpone the invitation in such cases. If you are admitted after an application, you will necessarily have satisfied the standard required for Preliminary Honours and will be credited with having passed it.
