Strategic litigation uses law to pursue social change. It goes beyond using law to advocate for individual rights and remedies. Rather, litigation is initiated to achieve a social change. This subject gives students skills to work in strategic litigation generally, as well as particularly as it applies to advancing indigenous justice. Students have opportunities to gain knowledge and real world practical experience in strategic litigation for Indigenous clients and nations. Through working on strategic litigation cases derived from real world experience and developing strategic litigation plans, including in practice groups, students gain practice based, cross-cultural skills in legal advocacy for indigenous communities.

The subject also furthers objective 3.4 UTS Indigenous Education Strategy: to develop Indigenous competency among UTS students.
