Students explore Australia's legal heritage and the dynamic nature of the Australian legal system within a global context. They learn about the structures of the Australian legal system and how it responds and contributes to social change while acknowledging tradition.

Students gain insight into law-making, the processes of dispute resolution, and the administration of justice. They investigate legal perspectives on contemporary issues in society, and reflect on, and make informed judgments about, the strengths and weaknesses of the Australian legal system.
