Online Law of Evidence module open to all at the University of Limerick


The School of Law at the University of Limerick is pleased to offer a Law of Evidence module for 12 weeks starting in September 2018. This module is open to everyone, and can be taken as a standalone link-in module, called a University Certificate of Study.

The Law of Evidence is the means by which we go about determining accurately what occurred in the past, while also determining how it ought fairly to be understood or interpreted, and how it ought fairly to be evaluated. It is the material offered in court during a trial for the purpose of enabling the finder of fact (judge or jury) to reach a decision on the issues in dispute. The purpose of this online course is to examine all of the main topics within the Law of Evidence.

LA4082: Law of Evidence Module

  • This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in the court process and fact finding.
  • CPD Credit: A solicitor practising on a full-time basis and undertaking this course, can claim a maximum of 10 hours eLearning.
  • The module is worth 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System points) at Level 8.

How it works
