Topic description

By enabling students to participate in one of the wide variety of ways the law is practised, and to assess and analyse their experiences with the guidance of supervisors and the topic coordinator, students will develop a critical perspective on such issues as legal ethics, professionalism, access to justice, and the role of law, lawyers, legal professionals and the legal services sector in society.
