Unit Enrolment Restrictions
This is a unit for Law students in a clinical legal practice setting who have completed the pre-requisites and priority would need to be given to such students. The unit is not considered appropriate for non-LLB students by virtue of its nature. Students enrolling in this unit may need to have a Criminal Records check and consent declaration as some students may be conducting their placement in circumstances where they are 'working' with minors.

About this Unit
Clinical Legal Placement allows you to attend the Parramatta Community Justice Clinic (PCJC) or a community legal centre for five (5) days. Places are limited and enrolment is based on merit. This unit provides you with an invaluable opportunity to use and reflect on your study of law in an interactive, legal service environment. Under the supervision of a legal practitioner you will work on advice, casework, policy or project work, as required by the PCJC or relevant centre. You will examine the practical application of the law and the interaction of law, facts, policy and ethical issues. You will be exposed to a system of self-analysis and self-criticism. You will be required to record and reflect on your experiences, deliver a presentation and submit a paper.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
It is foreseeable that students entering these units may need to have a criminal records check and consent declarations as some of them may be conducting their placement in circumstances where they are 'working' with minors.
