Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) On-Campus Consultancy - LAWS499

Students will interact directly with legal practitioners and policy makers from Participation and Community Engagement (PACE) partner organisations drawn from the legal profession, government, industry and civil society. Mentors from partner organisations will work with students on real world research projects that will feed into and support the law reform work of the partner organisation. Mentors will also discuss with students the highlights and challenges of working in legal practice and policy development, and the leadership role of their organisation in working for progress in areas such as legal governance and social justice. Students will work in professionally oriented teams to meet the research needs of the partner organisation and will present the results of their research to their partner organisation and their peers for consideration and feedback.
