LWN601-1 Professional Project in Law

Unit synopsis

The ability to complete complex projects in a legal environment requires professionals who are able to look at scenarios and the challenges they present and analyse the legal implications for the community, industry or the workplace. This unit is the first component of a two-component unit that will assist you to design a research strategy and conceptual framework for the capstone project to be completed in the final semester in LWN601-2 Professional Project in Law. You will consolidate the research and communication skills introduced in LWN304 Legal Research Methodologies and developed throughout your course. You can work on the same research project you commenced in LWN304 or on a different one. You will be working towards a real world outcome such as a law reform submission, report to benefit government, industry or the community, or a scholarly paper that may be submitted as an article to a journal.While research projects are individual, you may also work collaboratively with your supervisor and other students and develop skills in peer review of research.
