This study adopts a contemporary research approach and seeks to identify, analyse, and address some specific process related problems that third year undergraduate translation students' experience when learning law and solving legal problems. This study sought to answer the following question: Is
there any change in the affective outcomes of undergraduate translation students with respect to their bias towards surface and deep approaches to learning before and after the problem-based learning intervention? The students' progression in problem solving was measured before and after the
problem-based learning intervention to check for change. The second research question addresses students attitudes to learning environments before and after the problem-based learning intervention.
