This subject enables students to undertake a specialised short course within the discipline of law overseas, and to obtain credit for this study. This subject will provide students with an opportunity to develop their international and comparative legal knowledge, while at the same time develop legal skills taught in other legal traditions and cultures. Students will also gain intercultural awareness, adaptability and resourcefulness, and will build their capacities to become future global professionals.
There are two components to this subject. The first is the successful completion of all the requirements of the short course overseas, and the second is the successful completion of all of the requirements of this subject.
Students may choose from a range of faculty recommendations or identify their own subject for study, however before enrolling in this subject students must:
- consult and seek approval (in writing) from this subject’s coordinator that the short course will be appropriate for credit, and
- conclude enrollment in the short course overseas.
The following are some the possible features of a short course that is acceptable for recognition:
- A course presented by an overseas university;
- a structured learning experience (this may include field trips, on-location visits and lectures, and some cultural activities);
- the course’s content is within the discipline of law (this may include interdisciplinary subjects, theoretical subjects, as well as practical subjects). Please note however that this subject is not an internship subject and must therefore not overlap with 78295 Global Professional Experience Project/International Legal Internship 76098;
- while typically taught intensively, the length of the subject will be an equivalent of 24 full time hours (for post graduate students) and 36 full time hours (for undergraduate students);
- a short course may also be a UTS Law Faculty led overseas study tour. Such a course would contain most of the above features but will be convened and taught by Faculty. Assessment for these courses may also vary.
All financial, travel and visa requirements are dependent upon the host country and are to be negotiated by the student. The short course upon which this subject is based is not a Faculty or University arranged course.
