You won’t be disappointed! I have felt a sense of belonging at ECU since my first day; lecturers and tutors are welcoming and keen to share their knowledge and expertise. As a mature-age student I was a little apprehensive about being the odd one out in class, but I’ve made a point of participating in events and embracing uni life. Instead of being a barrier, my life experience has proved to be an asset to my study experience. In 2007 I won the nicholson Shield for ‘negotiating’ and the d.P. murphy medal for ‘Best Orator’. In 2008 I was a finalist in the Tottle Shield mooting competition. In 2009 I was selected to be part of an ECU team for the lAWASIA Competition in Ho Chi minh City. The experience of participating with 16 other universities from the Asian region, together with a field of international judges, was tremendous and unforgettable. gRAnT nARBEy ECU law student eleCTiVe uNiTs lAW4110 International Trade law CRI1103 Criminology lAW2106 Intellectual Property law lAW3109 Taxation law lAW2105 Employment law lAW3105 Alternative dispute Resolution lAW4609 Remedies lAW4206 Advanced Criminal law lAW4108 International law lAW4607 Family law lAW3260 Asian legal and Political Systems III lAW2600 Terrorism and the law lAW3201 law of Banking and Credit III lAW2601 Planning and developmental law I lAW2602 Environmental law and Administration lAW3602 Community legal Practice lAW3700 Supervised legal Research Paper lAW3600 Coronial law and mortuary Practice lAW3608 Advanced Taxation law lAW3605 Occupational Health, Safety and Security law and Policy lAW3221 Trade Practices, Competition and Consumer Protection law lAW4130 Innocence Project lAW4601 mining and Resource law CRI3109 International Human Rights IAS1115 Indigenous Australians, Cultural Competence and the Criminal Justice System lecturers and tutors are committed to creating challenging classroom environments by drawing on their industry experience. eleCTiVe uNiTs � HoNours ECU law and Justice staff are actively engaged with industry, lAW4710 Advanced legal Research Thesis the professions and the community, developing significant (30 credit points) relationships with bodies such as The law Society, the Western Australian dispute Resolutions Association (WAdRA) and the See more course information: northern Suburbs Community legal Centre. reachyourpotential.com.au/courses/V72 17 BACHelor oF lAWs (GrAduATe eNTrY) This course is modelled on the Bachelor of laws (v72) All units are worth 15 credit points, unless and enables graduates to complete a Bachelor of laws otherwise specified. degree (llB) in three years of full-time study or part-time The degree has the following main components: equivalent, with necessary overloading. n Core units – 330 credit points (22 units) The course satisfies the academic requirements for n Elective units – 105 credit points (7 units) admission of law graduates as legal practitioners in Western Australia.

I’ve completed degrees with other universities, so when I told my friends and family that I’d chosen ECU instead to complete my law degree, they were surprised. Originally my decision was based on the campus’ proximity to my work. now, I’m glad I didn’t make any other choice. ECU lecturers are more than academics; they’re current practitioners in their fields, offering world-class knowledge and practical experience. The facilities are fantastic too. I was able to remotely access the largest and latest information databases which meant I could spend nights and weekends with my family and still complete my homework and assignments.

With the legal profession experiencing a shortage of lawyers in regional and remote areas, the new delivery mode means studying law is now accessible to students from these communities without the need to relocate. “The legal profession has acknowledged a shortage of lawyers in regional and remote areas and we hope that by providing access to legal studies to people from these communities, ECU will be contributing to alleviating this issue,” said Professor mark Stoney, Head of School for ECU’s School of law and Justice. “Technology has made it possible for us to provide off-campus students with learning opportunities that are equal to standard, lecture-based, on-campus studies.” The course also provides an alternative study mode for those with work and other commitments that may prevent them from attending traditional lectures on-campus. ECU's deputy vice-Chancellor, Professor Arshad Omari, says that the introduction of the online course exemplified ECU's commitment to enhancing access to quality higher education. “As society changes, students are less able to attend traditional university classes and the new online Bachelor of laws program will go a long way towards developing much needed qualified legal practitioners in Australia.” But studying online doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the university experience. Off-campus students have access to the same opportunities as on-campus law students, through interactive learning spaces, recorded lectures and online discussion groups. They also enhance their electronic communications skills, something that has become very important in the industry. ECU’s Law degree bridges the gap between theory and practice. Practical skills are incorporated into the course from the very start. In my first year I was conducting mediations and negotiations and by my third year I was interviewing clients, under supervision, at the on-campus Joondalup Community legal Centre. In my second year I was fortunate to receive an ECU sponsorship award to attend and compete in a national mooting Competition. We won first prize for best written submissions and brought back to WA the Clayton Utz Cup. Before graduating I was selected for a Judges Associateship with the Supreme Court of WA and I already have a job lined up with Perth’s top independent commercial law firm, Jackson mcdonald, after my Associateship.
