The purpose of the course is to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the law, procedure and practice of parliaments and other related public law topics, such as the relationship of parliament to the executive and the courts. The course will examine common-law Westminster systems and their incorporation into the governments of Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

The Graduate Certificate in Parliamentary Law and Practice is a professional training program specifically designed for parliamentary clerks. However, because the law and custom of parliament is of interest to persons other than clerks, such as members of parliament and students of the parliamentary process, it is proposed that it be open to any person with undergraduate or post graduate qualifications in law or politics.

  2. Provide an in depth understanding of the law, custom, practices and procedures of parliament and other related public law topics for persons working with parliament and for students of the parliamentary process.
