Focus on Skills
Law Lecturer Michael Eburn with his book Criminal Law and Procedure in New South Wales
The Law School's undergraduate law degree focuses on the essential skills that make a competent lawyer. These lie in the areas of legal analysis and problem solving, research, written and oral communication, and information literacy.
The transmission of these skills is a central objective of two compulsory units: LS 100 - Introduction to Legal Systems and Methods, and LS 480 - Advanced Legal Writing and Advocacy, incorporating moot court. Many other units also focus on the development of core legal skills, particularly LS 459 - Advanced Torts, and LS 478 - Advanced Criminal Law.
Read more about these units in the School of Law Handbook.
