This project will provide an opportunity for leaders and educators in Law to collaborate and drive forward innovation in assessment during a time of additional challenge.
In recent months, significant changes have taken place in assessment and feedback as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic. This makes it even more important to consider and refine assessment and feedback in the changing landscape. The project design takes account of recent NSS results in Law, consultation meetings we have held with colleagues working in Law, and other pedagogic developments in the field.
This project will inform and guide best practice in the context of Law, helping faculties and schools improve and innovate in assessment and feedback.
Cost: £5,000 for Advance HE member institutions or £6,000 for non-member institutions.

The project is designed to maximise the value of working alongside other institutions, while benefiting from Advance HE’s expertise in assessment and feedback. The project structure will allow for knowledge and good practice exchange as well as bespoke consultative support to develop your institution’s expertise, structures and processes.
We anticipate the entire project will be undertaken online with no face-to-face meetings or events necessary. This is reflected in the price of the project.
The project will begin in October, the deadline to join is 18 September 2020.
The project is comprised of:
- an introductory consultation
- a diagnostic survey
- an interactive online collaboration event
- two bespoke individual online workshops for each institution
- an interactive concluding collaboration event
- a summary report with outcomes.
Benefits of joining the project
This project brings a number of benefits to individual participating institutions, but also to other schools/faculties with law provision, and more broadly to the HE sector. Benefits include:
- data-grounded diagnostic to identify your areas of strength and challenge
- bespoke intervention for a selection of staff to address key challenges
- access to, and learnings from, leading experts in assessment and feedback
- network with, and learn from, other law schools/faculties facing similar challenges, or who have identified innovative practices to overcome challenges
- reflecting on the learnings from the project together, including the learnings of other institutions developed through the course of the programme
- shaping best practice for the future of assessment and feedback in a changing world
- networking with other assessment and feedback leads in law
- a tangible recommendations report to shape your practice, and the opportunity to contribute towards a sector wide practice-based publication to distil findings for the sector.
Who should join the project?
The project is aimed at those who are responsible for the provision of assessment and feedback for law subjects. Each institution will be invited to nominate two representatives to take part in the project.
See how we worked with Medical Schools on assessment
The National Collaborative Medical School Assessment and Feedback Project was a collaboration between Advance HE and six medical schools. Through a series of structured and collaborative activities, participating schools looked to achieve a deeper, more all-encompassing understanding of the challenges of assessment and feedback.
“By collaborating with other schools we have identified that there are a number of shared issues, challenges and areas of focus for development across the sector … The project has helped foster relationships with our peers and through these we are now starting to build on some of the ideas generated during the project work.”
