Advocacy - LAW477

The unit provides an introduction to the theory and practice of social justice advocacy. We will examine campaigning using a combination of legal and other forms of advocacy. The aim is to teach students to think creatively about how to go about achieving social justice outcomes. Learning in the unit will be structured around case studies of social justice litigation, which will be used as a practical basis for exploring effective legal and non-legal strategies. The trial advocacy component covers analysis, strategy and preparation of cases; written submissions; cross-examination of witnesses; and opening and closing addresses. Experienced counsel are also involved.
