Introducing Law and Justice is the first of the foundational level core courses for the LLB degree. This course introduces students to the history, operation and contemporary dynamics of our legal system. It provides a grounding in the core legal skills necessary for successful study and practice, including legal research and writing; case analysis and critique; and the interpretation and application of statutes. All of these skills will continue to be developed through your LLB studies.

The course has two parts, a Coursework Seminar and a Research Tutorial. All students enrolled in Introducing Law and Justice participate in two Coursework seminars each week, starting in Week 1. And a 1hr per week Research Tutorial, also starting in Week 1. All classes in Introducing Law and Justice are small, with a focus on interactive teaching, so while the topics covered in Coursework seminars and Research tutorials are linked, they do not follow a standard lecture/tutorial model.
