Topic description
Law is a global profession, and lawyers need to be able to demonstrate the capacity to adapt to, and engage with, jurisdictions beyond their own. Law in a Global Age equips students with the skills to respond to these challenges through an intensive introduction to a national legal system beyond Australia.

Core to this topic is the opportunity to undertake an international study tour. Country options will change, but each will see students learn in international contexts including universities, legal institutions, government departments, and NGOs, and allow students to develop networks with their international peers. Each tour will form part of a rigorous academic program that provides students with a grounding in the national legal system and enables them to undertake research driven by their particular interests. Students will also develop and demonstrate more general skills in inter-cultural awareness, communication, and adaptability.
Educational aims
This topic aims to:

  • Introduce students to the history and operation of a legal system outside of Australia through in-country study and self-directed research

  • Provide the opportunity for students to think differently and critically about the Australian legal system

  • Allow students to develop the skills of scholarly research, writing, and critical analysis.
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic, students will be expected to be able to:

  1. Identify the foundations, context, institutions, and functioning of a national legal system outside of Australia

  2. Conduct self-directed research on an aspect of a national legal system outside Australia

  3. Reflect upon their experiences of in-country study and recognise the skills they have developed through their experiences

  4. Communicate in ways that are effective, appropriate and persuasive for legal and non-legal audiences

  5. Apply the appropriate legal conventions in their writing, including proper citation method.
