Legal Clinic (5022LAW)

This course combines weekly placements at the Caxton Legal Centre with small group classes to assist students to develop their appreciation of the practical application of the law. Students will consider the nature of law reform, casework and community legal education along with encountering, under close supervision, the legal issues facing Legal Centre clients. Lawyering skills considered in other courses will be further developed and students will enhance their understanding of the role of law and lawyers within society. Attendance at the clinic and seminars is compulsory. NOTE: Due to space constraints and the teaching methods used, this course has a quota of 6 students per offering. Places will be determined on the basis of a ballot, with priority being given to final year students. Information on application process is available at the Griffith Law School Organisation site on Learning@Griffith. Prerequisite: Students must be in their final or penultimate year of their LLB degree program to undertake this course.
