A transnational law subject in the Australian law curriculum
Bond Law Review (2014)
  • Vai Io Lo, Bond University

To internationalise the Australian law curriculum, law schools may adopt a particular approach or a combination of approaches. Regardless of what approaches law schools have adopted or will adopt, this article argues that a foundation subject introducing the basic elements of international and comparative law and enhancing students’ capability to function in an increasingly globalised legal market should be offered as a compulsory unit. Toward this end, this article first explains why it is judicious to offer a transnational law subject and then explores how such a subject can be effectively delivered in terms of substantive topics, graduate attributes, learning activities and assessment.
