Cases must be cited correctly, but the full citation may be contained in footnotes. Please note that work which is not properly referenced will not achieve a good grade. Word count must be recorded. You must fully attribute any judicial quotations or passages taken from articles or textbooks. Failure to do so may result in your work being referred to the Academic Registry for plagiarism. For more information on how to reference see: http://libguides.mdx.ac.uk/plagiarismreferencing Submission of coursework
Coursework must be submitted electronically by Thursday, 17 January 2019 at 16:00 on Turnitin via the module site on UniHub, where it will be checked for possible plagiarism, collusion and word counts using the appropriate software. Failure to submit on Turnitin will result in the award of 0%. The work must be submitted without the title and without setting out the question in order for the word count to be checked. Please remember to state your word count excluding the title, question, footnotes that are used for citation purposes only and bibliography. The bibliography is to be submitted with your answer. Please do not submit hard copies in this module – submit only on Turnitin.
The deadline is fixed and missing the deadline will result in the award of 0%. There is no such thing as an extension. Where you can demonstrate a good reason to defer, you may apply for a deferral. If you are granted a deferral, you must take the new assessment at the next opportunity.
You must take care to upload your final answer by the deadline as once the deadline is passed you will not be able to submit another version. The responsibility for timely submission is yours, and except for proven failures of University systems, reasons for late submission relating to your computer malfunction will not be accepted as a reason not to apply the penalty for late of submissions.
MAURITIUS AND DUBAI LLB STUDENTS SHOULD FOLLOW THE ADVICE OF THEIR LECTURERS REGARDING PROCEDURES FOR THE SUBMISSION OF ALL COURSEWORK. You must retain a copy of your work.

(f) Coursework which exceeds the word limit by more than 10% will be penalised by the deduction of 5% on a pro rata basis for each 10% that the word limit is further exceeded.
Please note: If you do not reference your coursework properly, you cannot gain a grade 1 or 2.1. In doubt, consult your tutor. Academic misconduct The University Regulations (Section F) detail procedures in relation to Academic Misconduct. Academic Misconduct includes:
– Collusion – Plagiarism (see below) – Infringement of exam regulations
The work presented for assessment in either the MCQs or the exam must be the student’s own and not the same as another student’s.
Collusion In relation to collusion on coursework, please note that Turnitin on UniHub shows what percentage of students’ work is the same as that of other named students. The work presented for assessment must be the student’s own (or where the assessment is the work of a project group, the work of the group). Plagiarism What is plagiarism? Plagiarism is the presentation of someone else’s work as if it were your own. This includes the work, whether or not in printed form, from an internet site or otherwise of any other person, including another student. Put simply, plagiarism is stealing. Examples of plagiarism may include: · verbatim copying of another’s work – without acknowledgement · the close paraphrasing of another’s work – without acknowledgement
· unacknowledged quotation of phrases from another’s work · the deliberate and detailed presentation of another’s ideas as one’s own All cases of suspected plagiarism are reported to the Registry, who will apply a penalty if a finding of academic dishonesty is made. Plagiarism is easy to avoid. The standard method which is accepted in all academic institutions is to acknowledge your sources. This can be done in the following ways: 1. Separate all direct quotations from your own work by using quotation marks (and if using long quotations, separate by indenting the quoted section). 2. Quote the precise source of the quotation in a footnote, including the page number on which it appears in the edition quoted. 3. List all sources used in preparing the coursework in a clear and detailed bibliography at the end of your work. 4. Even if you are not deliberately copying someone else’s work, it is still plagiarism if you are paraphrasing someone else’s argument. You should note the original source in the same way as for a direct quotation, except that here quotation marks should not be used. Instead, you need to make it clear that you are presenting someone else’s ideas by using phrases such as ‘According to Jones…’ or ‘Smith argues …’ 5. If you reproduce material from books, journals, internet sources etc, you should always clearly indicate that it is a quotation, in addition to acknowledging the source. If in doubt about how to acknowledge sources, consult your module leaders or the programme leader. Information on the correct way of acknowledging work from other sources is also available from the learning resource centre.
