LLB - RESEARCH METHODOLOGY 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 15
Hi,

I see that research methodology is now compulsory in our 4th year!

Anyone knows what it is about?

Regards,
Jacqueline

Hi

I'm interested now because the research module paper was/is one of the compulsory modules for the Masters - wonder if this one will now count?

Hi

I have done research methodology RME101Q as part of a Btech which is also a 4th year for Real Estate. It was NQF level 7 when I did it.

It was/is given to prepare you for a masters dissertation, sometimes they will require you to take it before attempting your maters paper. Sort of like a post grad subject to familiarise you with research and what is required/how to go about it.
It is, as I recall, devided into quantative and qualitative research, methodological research methods, data processing, research falacy, etc.

You assignment is a lit. review on a topic of your choice. (at this stage if you are planning a masters you can do a lit. review of your dissertation topic.)

The exam is based on a case study which will be some research essay and the questions will be based on that. Like the following perhaps: what data sampling was used? Why is the conclusion from the data false? What error was made...? etc. etc.

As I recall, I found it interesting, if you like critical thinking this one is for you. The assignment is pretty heavy, just getting the wording of your topic correct is a mission and staying on topic and not wharra-wharra-ing off topic is also pretty important and difficult. It is a lit. review so alot of reading on your topic is required. Can't remember how many pages are required but it's a mission if you want a good assignment mark, they will nit pick and find mistakes (to prepare you for your dissertation of course
The exam was easy-ish, with a bit of cramming beforehand I got 65%+-

Hope this helps

Perfect - thanks for the insight.

I'm about to look and see how it has affected the Masters program as a research module was mandatory.

Cheers

With the current LLB, one wouldn't be qualified enough to apply for an LLM according to the UNISA rules (I emailed them and got a reply!).

If no research module was done (with the current curriculum) then it would be impossible to apply for a Masters. You would first have to apply and complete a 1 year Post grad certificate in law to qualify for a Masters. And the only post grad certificate Unisa offers is in HIV/AIDS in SA...AT least that's what the reply I got in the email said!

I think this is simply UNISA's way of ensuring that you can actually apply for a Masters afterwards....so let's look at it in a positive light!

bedish, thats a bit of a shocker so previously, and for those finishing this semester and next, no 1 could go study masters, yet by changing 1 module others will that's just weird. bad planning but somewhere it doesnt add up. either their certificate isnt worth much or they realised there's no reason not to allow LLB graduates to study LLM. there's probably not enough interest in LLM's.

i doubt i'll go for llm anyway because everyone with a bit of knowledge on law llm's know they focus on such a small area of law that for most its not going to mean much.

if you can major in philosophy with your masters that would seriously benefit you (just joking)

As you say Tank its probably not that helpful to an attorney to do an LLM

But advocates often do them to enhance their knowledge in an area of law that is otherwise lacking or that they want to specialise in.

@Tank...yes that is pretty much it...when looking at the entrance requirements for an LLM, it says one MUST have done a research module (or dissertation) in their undergrad law degree or else they must do a post grad course in law before applying for an LLM...I think it's DISGUSTING that we weren't informed of this sooner...almost makes the LLB useless (if wanting to study further...)

I don't have much intention for practising in law, after finishing my degree, as a conventional career in law (as in attorney/advocate) isn't looking viable for me. I would probably be use a law degree in some other way, but it's interesting to note that if you have any intention of working overseas (as in the UK or Europe) you have to have a minimum of a masters. I'm currently living in the Netherlands, and all the students here have a minimum of a masters when entering the working world.

Also interesting to note that in Europe, if you have a 3 year degree, (like a three year BCom/BA) it's not recognised. Had some friends trying to do post grad in Europe, and weren't accepted anywhere! So thank goodness an LLB is 4 years long (minumum!)

thanks bedish, thats interesting. so to get work in europe its going to be easier to do a coversion to england's admission requirement after doing south africa's, rather then doing a LLM. unless you really want to do the specific LLM

@Tank and @bedish Yup, it's different in Europe since they applied the Bologna Process a few years ago. I can speak for personal experience since I am Portuguese and studied my 1st degree in my country. I have got BA Psychology, but it's not enough to practice as a Psychologist. The masters became compulsory in order to exercise in certain fields or to be recognized as a professional in certain fields.

I am also shocked that UNISA hasn't informed their students a lot sooner and better about the requirements for LLM ... I would feel completely cheated...


EDIT: Just wanted to add that I had a similar subject on my 3rd year of Psychology. If this UNISA module is like the one I had, it basically entails a couple of rules and methods of how to do a research and different phases of the whole process, including how to present it if you want to publish it.

Olá Anaisa

I came to SA for personal reasons, I've been here for 3 years now.

You must be very excited to move! I also don't plan to stay in SA forever, but moving to another country again is a plan for the future, not anytime soon hehe.

Keep well!
