School of Law and Justice Workshops

The School of Law and Justice offers a number of workshops to provide students studying online the opportunity to attend on campus classes and to meet staff and other students.

Workshops may be compulsory and therefore must be attended as a requirement of a unit of study or non-compulsory, however, highly recommended as a learning experience for a particular unit of study.

Bachelor of Laws Workshop Program

Compulsory Workshops

The workshop program is compulsory as learning experiences and skill required at an LLB level cannot be taught effectively solely online.

These learning experiences include critical analysis and familiarity with legal theory at an LLB level, the stimulation of social critique, the ability to develop legal argument, and the ability to communicate effectively in a range of communication modes, particularly oral communication skills as applied in advocacy, moots (practice court), negotiation and mediation.

There are two compulsory workshops attached to the Bachelor of Laws and students must attend these workshops to pass the course. 

The workshops are attached to the follow units:
