This is an essay submission guide for a School of Law course in International Law. It provides instructions on how to submit the essay, the word limit, the penalties for late submission, and the criteria for marking the essay. The guide emphasizes the importance of academic integrity, including avoiding plagiarism, citing sources properly, and submitting original work.

Essay – Semester 2 – 2022/2023
Submission Date: 11 May 2023 Word Limit: 3,500
INSTRUCTIONS
1. The assessment will count for 100% of your total marks for this module.
2. Your completed assessment must be submitted electronically to Turnitin through Minerva VLE
by 12 noon on 11 May 2023. To do this, you must log into Minerva Portal & VLE and click on the
‘Modules’ tab. Select the appropriate module title (named at the top of this template), then click on
‘Submit My Work’ in the module menu. Select the link to the relevant assessment then upload
your work. By submitting your assessed work through the VLE you are accepting the
Declaration of Academic Integrity, extending to a declaration that the work is not plagiarised
and that the word count is accurately stated.
3. You should complete an Assessed Coursework Cover Sheet with details of your Student ID
number, Module Code & Title and Declared Word Count and insert this at the beginning of your
assessment before uploading to Turnitin.
4. Work which is submitted after the deadline will be penalised in accordance with University rules as
follows: you will be deducted 5 marks for every 24 hour period or part thereof that your assessment
is overdue, up to 14 days. If your work is more than 14 days late, or if the deduction is larger than
the mark you receive, you will receive a mark of 0.
5. Extensions of the deadline for submission can only be granted in exceptional circumstances and
can only be obtained from Student Support Officers (StudentSupportLaw@leeds.ac.uk).
6. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have submitted the correct version of your work. If, after
making a submission, you claim that you mistakenly submitted a draft, the wrong version or a
different assessment, the original version, which was submitted by the deadline, will still be treated
as your submission.
7. You should obtain your digital receipt of submission. You are also required to keep an additional
copy of your work for your own reference. In addition you must keep your notes and draft copies of
the work.
8. You should ensure that you do not include your name anywhere on your assessment in
order that it remains anonymous for marking – however, you should include your Student ID
number, module code, module title and state the word count on the header of each page and
as the file name of your document.
9. The length of your work should not exceed 3,500 words (excluding footnotes, endnotes,
bibliography, and restatement of the assessment question). If you exceed the maximum by
less than 10% no penalty will be applied. However, if the total is 10% above the maximum or more
then you will be penalised in accordance with following School rules:
10% and over – 5 mark penalty
20% and over – 10 marks
2
30% and over – 15 marks
40% and over – 20 marks
50% and over – a maximum of 0 marks would be awarded.
10.Plagiarism and Cheating
It is essential that your assessed work represents your own work and that it has not been
produced in collusion with any other party. Text and ideas derived from written sources
(including electronic sources) must be acknowledged by way of appropriate citation. If you are
not aware of the University’s rules on plagiarism and academic malpractice, please familiarise
yourself with the relevant regulations as set out on the secretariat website. You should also refer
to the Academic Integrity Handbook on Minerva VLE under
Organisation/Law/Undergraduate/Academic Integrity.

School of Law Undergraduate Assessment Criteria
These assessment criteria are intended to be used by staff and students. Staff should use them when
marking essays to (a) assess the level of the essay across the five main criteria (taking into account whether
it is a Level One, Two or Three module) and (b) when preparing feedback. For students their purpose is two fold. First, they should be used when preparing the essay, in particular when assessing an early draft.
Second, they provide some indication of why an essay has been placed in a particular category for each of
the five main criteria by the marker. Key aspects for each of the five criteria are listed in italics.
