Interdisciplinary Project - LAWS5208

Year - 2020

This unit is designed for final year LLB and JD students to participate in various interdisciplinary group projects that allows them to work with one of the University's industry and community partners. Students will work in teams on a real-world problem provided by the external partner, gaining valuable experience in working across disciplinary boundaries.

Classes

It will likely be: group plan (10%), group presentation (20%), 5000 wd group project report (50%), 1500 wd individual report (20%).
