This unit is concerned with orientating students into the discipline of law by providing an overview of the historical, jurisprudential, commercial, cultural and global context in which Australian law operates today. Trends and influences shaping the future of Australian law and practice are also explored. Research skills relating to secondary materials are developed together with a capacity to discuss abstract legal questions through writing an academic essay.
