This dynamic final year capstone course reinforces and consolidates what LLB students have learned in the whole LLB degree program. It allows them to demonstrate their mastery, analysis and synthesis of legal knowledge and skills. Students will engage with a case study involving all their legal skills such as drafting documents, giving advice and using negotiation and mediation skills. They will also take part in group work and oral presentations. Other sections of the course cover wellness and resilience, bi-cultural skills in a multi-cultural society, career readiness, technology and work, the culture of law and the reality of legal work and workplaces. The main aim is that law students will graduate with strengthened employability as a graduate attribute and be able to move more easily into workplaces where they will be using their LLB.
