Compulsory core unit for students in new Law degrees, which were introduced in 2013, with course codes: 63I, 63J, 63K, 63L, 63M, 63N, 63O and 63P. Also degrees commencing 2014 63Q and 63R.
Set against a context of the Australian legal system and the distinction between public and private law, Legal Reasoning provides students with the skills needed for the study of law. Building on Introduction to Law (LAW121) and Legal Systems (LAW122) it provides an extensive grounding in the skills of common law reasoning, case application, statutory interpretation, problem solving, legal research, and legal writing. It also seeks to embed essential personal skills in time management, reflection and the capacity to work independently as well as collaboratively.
