Course description

This course examines the structure of the Australian legal system and evaluates the core concepts underpinning the contextual realities of the system such as liberalism, the nature of rights, the plurality of law and the rule of law. The course also introduces students to legal thinking, case analysis, statutory interpretation and essential legal research skills. The course will therefore provide the platform for the future study of law.
