Learning activities and experiences in this degree include case-based learning where you will be encouraged to engage in critical discussion in seminars and online forums, supplemented by industry-engaged, authentic experiential learning opportunities in various simulations that will develop your legal skills.
These simulations include writing briefs and other legal documents, mooting, and negotiation/mediation and technology skills. All legal skills are integrated into core law subjects to ensure that students develop the requisite skills in close connection with the legal knowledge.
Through your studies, you will have the opportunity to take part in legal skills experiences which provide you with opportunities to demonstrate advocacy, negotiation, problem solving, legal reasoning, technology and communications skills. Clinical legal education and industry placements are also available.
Your introductory-level business foundation subjects are designed to help you contextualise business education and learning. You will also develop an eportfolio to consolidate your learning journey, and provide evidence of your developed skills and knowledge for your next steps after graduation.
You can expect to learn through tutorials, workshops, practical and theory-based lessons, and online resources. You may undertake presentations, assignments and other forms of assessment, depending on the subjects you select.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
