Anti-requisite(s): 78291 Experiential Legal Research


This subject provides students with an experiential learning opportunity through their participation in aspects of a research project that is at proposal/development stage or currently underway at UTS. The research projects vary in terms of purpose, methodologies and the stage at which students are invited to participate. Students participate as research assistants and this is an element of the UTS Ethics application approval. Students actively contribute to many aspects and phases of research project planning and development of the research. These could include: contributing to the development of research questions, conducting literature reviews, and advancing research strategies and methodologies. Some projects also offer students the opportunity to actively participate in ongoing project field work, writing ethics applications, formulation of surveys, data collection and analysis, transcription of interviews and writing reports or other communications. Working on these projects enables students to develop and apply analytical, research, communication and collaborative skills that are important for legal professionals and researchers in the context of tangible projects and outcomes.
