Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

critique the law from a number of theoretical perspectives, exploring how legal and social phenomena are inter-related; the role of the judiciary in mystifying and legitimising law, and law’s claims to be neutral and objective

utilise specific skills to predict the ways in which legal rules will be interpreted and applied, namely the theory of precedent and the rules governing the interpretation of statutes

communicate face-to-face, online and in writing, with precision and clarity, utilising a variety of media to engage with the process of learning

demonstrate an ability to work collaboratively with other students.
