The Sir Anthony Mason Research Project in Constitutional Law provides a unique opportunity to develop specialist knowledge and skills in constitutional law by completing a research project in this field. The student will be supervised by a staff member of the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law and the project will be assessed by the Director and one other academic member of the Centre (who is not the supervisor). Applicants are invited to devise a project that interests them and meets the advertised specifications.

This course is taught in a manner similar to the research thesis electives already offered by the Faculty of Law. The student will conduct his or her research project over the course of a standard semester and over this period will meet periodically with the supervisor in order to determine the final scope of the project on the basis of the proposal submitted and to receive further guidance as the project progresses.

Each year there is a call for applications, using an online form. Only one student can be selected each year.
