Summer semester intensive unit
Semester 2 Off campus offering is only available for outbound exchange students studying an equivalent unit overseas on approved international exchange.
This subject examines the major legal and policy issues relating to Australian citizenship and migration law. The subject begins with an historical background to immigration in Australia and an overview of the legislative framework. The subject will identify the role of registered migration agents in Australia, then focus on an analysis of the legislation, policy and developing case law in relation to the main visa classes. It will then pass on to the often controversial issue of asylum seekers and refugees (including detention and offshore processing), visa cancellation and the "character test", and merits review and the judicial review of migration decisions.
