Legal Studies explores the nature of the Australian legal system within a global context. Students gain an understanding of the structures of the legal system and how the diversity of society influences the legal system. The experiences gained by students about the legal system will enable them to participate as active and informed citizens in a democratic society. Students will analyse the dispute resolution process through the criminal and civil court systems and critically analyse if the system is fair and equitable.
Students will cover the compulsory Focus Area 1: Law and Communities and two optional focus areas, including Justice and Society, Relationship and the Law, Young People and the Law, and Law-making.
