Jersey Law Course Modules

 

The syllabus for each module is issued by the Bailiff. Candidates taking the course in order to qualify as a Jersey advocate or solicitor must take six core modules:

  • Jersey Legal System and Constitutional Law
  • Civil and Criminal Procedure
  • Contract Law
  • Law of Security Interests and Bankruptcy
  • Law of Immovable Property
  • Testate and Intestate Succession

In addition, candidates must take one of these optional modules:

  • Company Law
  • Family Law
  • Trusts Law

 

Each Module of the Jersey Law Course can be taken as a one off (with or without the examination) for personal knowledge or as a refresher course for those who have passed the course a few years back. For more information visit the Refresher courses page.

In addition, students who do not have any knowledge of the French language are advised to register for classes with the Alliance Francaise.
