Up to 200 Year 12 Legal Studies students from Coffs Harbour to Tweed Heads are expected to attend Southern Cross University’s Legal Studies Day, on September 8.

The day is designed to prepare students and their teachers for the Higher School Certificate Legal Studies exam, with experienced HSC markers in attendance to give advice on the syllabus and examination questions.

Students will have the benefit of keeping up-to-date with recent changes to Australian laws and be given handy tips and traps for the HSC.

“We hope the day will give Legal Studies students a competitive edge when it comes to sitting for their exams,” said Professor Bee Chen Goh, head of Southern Cross University’s School of Law and Justice.

“It is designed to give them more confidence when it comes to answering questions in their Legal Studies HSC exam.

“This is our 10th year of running the day and it is a great example of how our University engages with the local region to provide a valuable service to the community.

“This year the main sessions will be on human rights, family law and crime and there will be tutorials on consumers, world order and the global environment.”

The day has been organised in conjunction with the Far North Coast Legal Studies Teachers’ Association and will be held on Friday, September 8, at Southern Cross University’s Lismore campus.
