BEWARE: ESSAY WRITING SERVICES ARE TRYING TO LURE YOU INTO ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT!

Yesterday morning, cards for an essay and dissertation writing service  were being distributed outside the front of the Marylebone campus. This service is not linked to the university in any way and is offering a service that could result in students being excluded from their course. 

 The card states that their services are 100% legal. This is true – they are not breaking the law by selling essays but submitting work that has not been written by you is an ACADEMIC OFFENCE which is taken very seriously by the university and could result in exclusion. 

 If you are struggling with your writing, please sign up for the excellent workshops and tutorials offered  by our Academic Learning Development team: https://www.westminster.ac.uk/study/current-students/support-and-facilities/academic-learning-development or discuss your writing difficulties with your personal tutor.

Following the success of 2016’s  Seminar Series, the 2017 Construction Law Seminar brings together high profile partnerships alongside academics, researchers and students from the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Westminster Business School and the Westminster Law School . This seminar provides students with the opportunity to develop key skills for the professional environment.

The seminar is open to all students on the undergraduate and postgraduate Construction programmes and other students from Westminster and other Universities.

The University of Westminster is an international diverse environment, educating for professional life. Construction projects also have strong international character, especially regarding infrastructure in the Developing World. The UK has a strong and sophisticated framework for construction disputes, which raises the question of the applicable law in construction enterprises that involve more than one jurisdiction, or an enterprise involving common and civil law jurisdictions.
