Content
This unit is taken over two semesters and parts 1 and 2 must be completed to fulfil the requirements of the unit. Students can commence the unit in either semester 1 or semester 2. The unit provides students with an opportunity to engage in research at the doctoral level on a topic of interest to them and, in particular, a topic which has engaged their interest in their legal practice. The research project must be supervised by an approved expert on the subject concerned. Enrolment in the unit thus depends on an appropriate supervisor being available.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) formulate an appropriate research topic; (2) conduct relevant research into the topic; (3) synthesise the research; and (4) write a dissertation on the approved topic.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: a research paper of 18,000 words (excluding footnotes, tables, bibliography and any appendices). Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
