The context of the assessment task for this 4th Year Final capstone assessment is based on the widely acclaimed ‘Dragon’s Den’ BBC programme that showcases entrepreneurs' business ideas to investors. The investment for the commercial transaction is reflected in a shareholder's agreement. This authentic assessment is linked to the professional practice of a commercial lawyer. The rationale of this capstone assessment is to engage final year students in the Commercial Law module in the Law and Tax Level 8 programme to draft and negotiate a shareholders’ agreement. This real-world problem-based assignment is designed to embed learning outcomes to include teamwork, problem solving, collaboration, communication to deepen learning and evaluate and critically analyse commercial clauses and key concepts. Students collaborate with peers to negotiate the terms of the commercial agreement. Students' adversarial skills are linked to professional practice and develop key law graduate attributes.
