Contribute to the cutting edge work of the Centre for Innovative Justice by being part of its research projects.
Each year, students are invited to participate in a research project being undertaken by the CIJ as part of the course ‘Legal Research Project’, under the supervision of both CIJ and GSBL academic staff.
Places available: Varies, but usually no more than 4.
Course credit available: If selected, JD students can complete this work for course Legal Research Project (LAW 1040/LAW 2424) subject to meeting course prerequisites. Sometimes, opportunities are available to students from other disciplines, such as Social Work.
In early 2017, Professor Gillian Triggs launched a report by JD students enrolled in this subject on the impacts of a hypothetical Human Rights Charter on a number of old cases, a report commissioned by the Australian Human Rights Commission. You can read more about the project on our blog and read the final report here.
You can listen to a podcast of the launch here.
The CIJ’s Student Program Coordinator, Anna Howard, is available to discuss these opportunities with students. Interested students should contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
