LLH401 Legal Research Capstone

The final year capstone experience will support you in your transition from university to professional work. You will consolidate your legal knowledge and skills by responding to real-world legal problems and developing your professional reflection skills. You will develop an awareness and appreciation of the impact that technology is having, and will continue to have, on the way law is practised. Whether you see your future career in a law firm, community legal centre, law reform commission, government department, research institution, or somewhere else, you will need to understand the technology that is being used in practice and the ethical obligations that accompany their use. You will also broaden your capabilities in planning, developing and completing a complex research project.
