LLB462 Learning in Professional Practice

Unit synopsis

This unit provides students with the experience of working in a professional legal environment. Students can either apply for one of the advertised placement opportunities or organise their own placement in a legal work place. Students will perform legal work (similar to that of a graduate solicitor) for a minimum of 60 hours, supervised by a lawyer qualified to practice in that jurisdiction. Once enrolled in the unit, students must either apply for an advertised placement opportunity or submit details of their self-organised placement to be approved by the Unit Coordinator. Students will reflect upon and learn from their experience through keeping a reflective journal, sharing their experiences with other students and using the student ePortfolio. Integral to each student's experience will be reflection and the identification and consideration of the theory/practice nexus.
