Legal Research 3 - LAWS7002

Year - 2018

This unit provides students who are nearing the end of the process of writing their thesis with the support and resources to assist them to complete in a timely manner. It provides opportunities for participants to refine and improve their writing by exposing central ideas from their theses to constructive criticism by colleagues; to develop the skills of presentation of scholarly work in an academic setting; to provide access to a group of people who are all engaged in completing theses and who can provide informed support. The unit can be tailored to the needs of individual students.

Classes
Students are required to attend an initial meeting as scheduled on the Sydney Law School timetable. One other session involving a one or two day conference in which students give presentations of their thesis will be held in later in the year. The date will be confirmed at the first meeting.

Assessment
Seminar presentation on an aspect of the student's thesis; a written outline of goals for the unit and written reflection on achievements during the unit and reading, commenting on and providing written feedback on a chapter of the thesis of another class member. The unit will be assessed on a pass/fail basis.
