The Australasian Professional Legal Education Council (APLEC) and the Law Admissions Consultative Committee (LACC) have published standards for the pre-admission practical training of Australian legal practitioners. Those standards have been adopted in Queensland as part of the admission rules for the legal profession. This unit covers the 'Elective' practice areas as contained in those standards.
The aim of this unit is to equip you to demonstrate competence in two 'elective' practice areas at the level required for admission to the Australian legal profession.
On completion of this unit, you will provide evidence that you can:
1. apply appropriate legal and procedural knowledge, skills, values and creative thinking in two selected areas of practice (Course Learning Outcomes 1.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 3.3, 3,4)
2. communicate your advice on the legal, factual, evidentiary and other aspects of client matters in those areas in language appropriate to clients and other parties (depending on the situation) (CLOs 3.1, 3.4, 3.5, 4.2, 4.5), and
3. draft relevant legal documents and make persuasive written and oral submissions to third parties such as tribunals, courts and government agencies (CLOs 3.1, 3.4, 3.5, 4.2).
· Represent a client in her or his interactions with government agencies, tribunals and courts (as appropriate) in two selected areas of practice
· Research and advise on law and procedure in two selected areas of practice, relevant to the client's instructions
· Document client applications, submissions, requests and dealings as appropriate.
This unit engages you in your learning through a problem-based learning approach. The unit's content and its organisation are designed to facilitate your acquisition of relevant knowledge, skills and values, to assess your progress in the unit and the course, and to provide evidence that you can meet unit and course outcomes and demonstrate competence in practice areas, skills and values relevant to professional admission.
The unit adopts a blended learning approach, which includes a fortnightly briefing or online briefing note and online problem-solving activities for you to work on supported by online resources and 'authentic' problem materials. You will also have face-to-face or online access to peers and lectures to support you when working with problem material.
The unit is conducted within the bounds of Laudrillard's conversational framework, utilising real world assessment, and employs collaborative learning and peer review.
