Law and justice

Accountancy

AYB200 Financial Accounting

External financial reports are a legal requirement for companies under the Australian Corporations Act and provide decision-useful information for interested users. Therefore, it is a requirement for accountants working in industry to know and understand: accounting concepts and procedures; specific technical accounting and legal requirements; and, general professional and ethical concepts. These are required in order to be able to prepare, present and explain external financial reports for users. Similarly, this knowledge and skill is a requirement for auditors who perform audits and reviews of external financial reports.

AYB301 Audit and Assurance

Audit and Assurance is a third year unit, which is included in the degree program to enable students to comprehend the key concepts of auditing as a discipline, to demonstrate the relationship between auditing and the systems of accountability and to demonstrate the differences between manual and computerised information systems (CIS) audit processes. The unit builds on the knowledge of accounting and accounting standards acquired in prior units by enabling students to understand in detail the audit process (including professional auditing standards and techniques and ethical requirements) which leads to the auditor providing an opinion on the truth and fairness of financial reports of various types of entities.

AYB340 Company Accounting

A large number of entities are companies rather than, for example, sole traders or partnerships. Accordingly, as an accountant, most of the work you will undertake as a practitioner will involve accounting for companies. In this context, accountants are required to interpret and apply accounting standards, and other statutory requirements governing the accounting procedures reflected in the content of a company's financial statements. Accountants are also required to integrate and apply academic accounting knowledge to solving problems that arise in practice. This unit contributes to the knowledge and skills you will need to prepare financial statements for companies. This unit builds on the prerequisite units by applying accounting principles to complex company accounting issues. It also provides a foundation for subsequent units, which develop critical analytical skills through an examination of theoretical accounting issues, accounting regulation and practice.

AYN416 Financial Accounting Processes

All firms need to prepare financial statements at least annually. AYN416 provides a comprehensive introduction to financial accounting processes from both a practical and theoretical viewpoint. Being the first accounting unit in the Master of Business (Professional Accounting) AYN416 also provides the foundation for studies in all the other accounting related units in the degree course particularly AYN417 Corporate Accounting and AYN418 Advanced Financial Accounting.

Justice

JSB209 Transnational Organised Crime and Terrorism

This unit is designed to provide students with an introduction to transnational and organised crime (TOC) and terrorism. Transnational organised crime has grown exponentially over the past two decades; similarly, terrorist organisations continue to threaten global security. Both criminal groups present an ongoing problem for governments and monarchies globally. While TOC groups benefit from the misfortune of others within the community, terrorists on the other hand seek to undermine the fabric of these communities. Organised crime and terrorist groups have existed for hundreds of years; they will continue to provide a focus for intelligence, security and policing operations for many generations to come. This unit seeks to explore and explain the basic nature of transnational organised crime and terrorism.

JSB219 Case Studies in Major Crime

Serious crimes such as homicide and child abuse are prominent in contemporary media debate and public commentary. Criminology and Justice Studies are multidiscipinary enterprises with a key focus on how both the criminal justice system and society more generally responds to these types of crime events. By closely studying different aspects of a range of historical major crimes, students will obtain a better understanding of the important criminal justice system responses and social processes associated with these events, and will develop enhanced skills in cultural analysis and social justice. The unit's focus on real world social problems will appeal to QUT's broader student market.

JSB278 Drugs and Crime

Drugs, both legal and illegal, present challenges to individuals and the community as well as to the criminal justice and health systems in Australia. The unit is designed to introduce students to key issues associated with drug use in Australia, including trends, patterns of usage and drug-related harms. Students will develop their skills proposing policy responses to drug control. The scope and content of the unit make this an important unit for justice professionals or those wanting to work in policy development, welfare and policing, and the unit's focus on real world social problems will appeal to QUT's student market.

JSB287 Crime in Popular Culture

Crime and criminality are ubiquitous in popular culture. Criminology is a multidisciplinary enterprise with a longstanding interest in cultural and social responses to crime. A critical account of how crime and criminality are represented in popular culture will provide a better understanding of how cultural genres shape mainstream attitudes and responses to crime, including shifting political and policy responses. This unit provides a comprehensive introduction to research and issues in the field that students will be able to apply in many areas of practice, including the analysis of media responses to crime.

Law

LLB205 Equity and Trusts

LLB250 Law, Privacy and Data Ethics

We live in an era where data is fundamentally changing many aspects of society, including the law. Major advances in data collection and artificial intelligence are creating new ethical and legal challenges across many different social domains.. The large-scale collection and aggregation of data is becoming increasingly crucial to many businesses, but also raises serious privacy concerns and ethical risks. Similarly, the application of predictive analytics can create competitive advantages and new value for businesses, but raises important legal and ethical issues, including problems of bias, discrimination, fairness, and transparency.

LLB301 Real Property Law

Real Property Law is a core unit in the law degree. It is required for admission to legal practice in Australia Real property law is a significant part of legal practice in government departments, in-house positions, general practice and specialised law firms.

LLB306 Civil Procedure

An understanding of civil procedure is required for admission to legal practice. This core unit draws on knowledge gained throughout the degree including contract law, torts, statutory interpretation and dispute resolution skills. This subject will develop your knowledge and understanding of procedural law in Australia and extend your skills from earlier studies in law units, such as critical analysis and dispute resolution in LLB101, LLB102 and LLB103 and negotiation in LLB202 Contract Law.

LLB349 Japanese Law

In the Asian Century, the centre of economic activity is shifting to the East. As the world's third largest economy and one of Australia's closest strategic and valued trade partners, Japan is a key player in this new global order. Future practitioners and policy-makers, therefore, must not only be able to assess contemporary developments in Japanese law, society and the economy, but also acquire broader capabilities in Asia-literate transnational lawyering. A knowledge of Japanese language or culture is NOT necessary to successfully complete this unit.
