The University of Malta Faculty of Laws has removed all capping of students for Master of Advocacy elective units following the chaos created on Thursday.

Law students enrolled in the M.Adv course can now register for elective units of their choice as all candidates will be accommodated, the faculty said.

Capping was only applicable for a small number of electives and these were introduced to ensure that students benefit from small-group tuition, given the practical approach of the modules, the statement said.


As this year in particular, some modules attracted a large number of students, the University will be ensuring that parallel sessions of the elective modules spread across the two semesters will be made available to accommodate all those who registered.

The Faculty of Laws said welcomed nearly 400 Freshers this year and is offering a total of 12 programmes of study, including eight at postgraduate level. An average of 320 students graduate from the Faculty each year

Law students had camped outside their faculty office overnight to secure their course choices after the capping of places in elective study units.
