Summer Session 2017-18 lec > student services
Ongoing Student Message Board
Webcampus Login

Discussion groups are provided for each of the 26 subjects in bulletin board format.

The forum section is designed to promote constructive discussion on issues and principles in law. For conditions of use, please refer to the Course Information Handbook and, in particular, "Studying Law with the LEC".

When using these forums, remember that you are engaged in a course of study leading to entry to the legal profession. Much of the communication between members of the profession, and between legal professionals and their clients, is now conducted using electronic forms of communication such as those found in these forums. Are you using them in a way which is helping you to develop appropriate forms of professional communication? If not, you should be.

Students are also advised generally in relation to electronic/web postings that a number of employers now conduct web searches on potential employees and take into consideration the nature of their postings on the web when considering whether or not an applicant would make a suitable employee in a professional office. Students should bear this is mind when making comments on the forums. Personal comments about another student are rarely likely to be regarded as professional and are an abuse of the opportunities provided by these forums.

The forums are designed primarily for you to discuss your studies and exchange ideas, and are also an effective way for students, especially external students, to get in contact with others studying the Diploma in Law course.

Some teachers have indicated their willingness to browse the discussions taking place and, if time allows, provide some input, however the discussions are designed to be student-driven.
