A pre-requisite is a unit that you must pass before you will be permitted to enrol in a related or subsequent unit. Most pre-requisite units will contain foundation knowledge which is essential for success in later units. Read more.
A restriction describes a unit that you have already successfully completed, which is considered the equivalent to another unit that you are attempting to enrol in. Depending on the units you have completed previously, you may be exempt from completing subsequent restricted units. Read more.
It is helpful but not essential that students have studied International Law.

Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
- demonstrate a broad and coherent understanding of the principles underpinning law of the sea, including the legal framework for maritime activities and how it develops in order to meet new threats as well as enduring tensions and Australia's implementation of law of the sea;
- use well-developed and autonomous judgement to develop persuasive legal arguments, using appropriative technical language, that identify, critically analyse and consolidate contemporary legal issues, legitimacy, coherence and integrity and the process of development of law of the sea; and
- use advanced communication skills to demonstrate the skills of legal research techniques and legal reasoning to develop independent views on legal issues that critically evaluate and synthesise future developments of law of the sea.
