Each year, the CIJ, in collaboration with the Graduate School of Business and Law, delivers a Study Tour, either overseas or here in Melbourne.
The Study Tour is a course available to RMIT JD students designed to introduce students to new approaches to the organisation of justice systems and the delivery of legal services, including innovative approaches that have been implemented in international jurisdictions. The course will assist students to develop an understanding of innovative justice, court innovation and affordable justice and to engage with legal and practical issues that may accompany the adoption of such practices in Australia.
In 2017, the Study Tour involved a trip to Auckland, New Zealand and included observations of the Rangatahi Court at Manurewa, the Rangatahi Youth Court and the Drug and Alcohol Court, as well as a visit to Massey University.
