LWN601-1 Professional Project in Law

Your study in this unit will provide you with assistance to design the research strategy and conceptual framework for the final semester capstone project to be completed in LWN601-2 Professional Project in Law. Your project will be focused on a specialised legal area in which you have a particular interest. You will consolidate the research and communciation skills that were introduced in LWN304 Legal Research Methodologies and developed throughout your course. While your research will be individual, you will work with other students in your group who are researching under the joint supervision of an expert in the field. You will develop skills in peer review by providing feedback to other students in your group and you will also benefit from their feedback on proposed research areas and approaches.
