Those not seeking to practice as legal practitioners will gain a liberal learning experience, which will be enriched by its exposure to the ethos and practice of the law. The course provides students with: professional legal skills, including the ability to analyse legal material and understand fundamental legal principles; an understanding of the relationship between law and society; general analytical skills for analysing and solving non-legal problems; and specialised study into the Australian legal system. Special emphasis is placed on legal skills. During their course students will develop skills in advocacy, negotiation, legal drafting and legal research. Campbelltown campus has excellent facilities, including a state-of-the-art moot court for students to practice advocacy skills, an excellent library and computer-based law research facilities.
