Meet Newcastle Law School human rights professor Amy Maguire

Happy Law Week!

Meet Dr Maguire, a Senior Lecturer at Newcastle Law School. She is an expert in international human rights law and conducts research on the rights of Indigenous peoples and refugees, potential legal responses to climate change impacts, and capital punishment, among other areas. She is also an award-winning teacher who coordinates the subjects Public International Law, International Human Rights Law and Indigenous Peoples, Issues and the Law. She has a regular column in The Conversation and tweets as @DrAmyMaguire.

Dr Amy Maguire is becoming a well-known social commentator on contemporary human rights issues. This month she was interviewed on Channel 7’s Sunrise Program regarding the case of Australian woman Cassandra Sainsbury, who has been arrested in Colombia on drug charges. Dr Maguire developed her analysis of this case through an article in The Conversation, arguing that Ms Sainsbury should not be denied the presumption of innocence. Dr Maguire was also quoted in The New Daily, noting that the potentially very long delay before trial in Colombia places pressure on someone in Ms Sainsbury’s position to plead guilty, even if they believe themselves innocent.

Studying International Human Rights Law

International Human Rights Law is designed to expose students to the theory, law and practice of human rights protection. While it is primarily concerned with international law, students will have several opportunities to explore the interaction between international and domestic human rights protections, and consider the comparative positions of various states. This course begins with a consideration of human rights theory and the international human rights framework. It proceeds with investigation of how human rights can be protected and enforced, and related gaps in human rights protection. Students will have the opportunity to select special topics for further study, including the rights of Indigenous peoples, the rights of refugees, and the rights of women. The course will conclude with an exploration of the roles and responsibilities of lawyers in relation to human rights protection, and activities focused on human rights law reform.

University of Newcastle Law School Juris Doctor

It’s National Law Week in Australia

National Law Week in Australia takes place throughout Australia in May each year. This year, it runs from May 15 – 19. Law Week provides Australians (and visitors) to get a closer look at how law and justice works in each Australian state. A range of exciting and interactive activities are being held around Australia celebrate Law Week, including courthouse tours, mock trials and student competitions.

Law Week events in Australia are organized individually or by a group of organizations collaborating to share ideas and resources. Some examples of organizations who participate in and support Law Week include the Courts Administration Authority, law firms, Australian police departments, municipal libraries, community legal centres, legal aid, and the Attorney General’s Department. Usually, Law Week’s major highlight is Courts Open Day, which provides a chance to explore the rich heritage of the courts. Tours, mock trials, sentencing exercises and meet-the-judge sessions give visitors an insight into court operations and personalities.

Law Week events are aimed for the whole community to enjoy. These events provide opportunities for people from all walks of life to gain new perspectives on legal and justice issues. These events will be of interest to those who work in legal and justice agencies and students, especially students studying at Australian law schools.

Australian Law Schools are a popular option for Canadian students wishing to attain qualifications to practice law.

But how do you know which degree to take—the LLB or the JD? It’s a question we receive a lot here at the OzTREKK office. Just what is the difference between the Bachelor of Laws and the Juris Doctor? Although we’ve covered the topic before, with so many new applicants, we felt it was important to have another look and answer some other common questions we receive.

What is the difference between the LLB and the JD?

The Bachelor of Laws and the Juris Doctor are both professionally recognized degrees. Both LLB and JD programs educate students to practice law and allow them to apply for registration in Canada. The main difference is that the LLB is offered at the undergraduate level, and the JD is offered at the postgraduate level. LLB students can study the program directly from high school or after having completed post-secondary studies, while the JD or graduate-entry LLB requires a completed bachelor degree for admission.

At some Australian law schools, JD programs are fast-tracked, so that you can complete them in two calendar years, as opposed to a three-year, graduate-entry LLB. Entry requirements for JD programs can be more competitive, especially as they become more popular with North American students. At universities where both a Juris Doctor and a Bachelor of Laws are offered, students who have already completed an undergraduate degree normally apply for the postgraduate professional qualification (JD).

After I graduate, what do I have to do in order to be eligible to practice law in Canada?

An assessment based on your academic and professional profile is done before you may apply for admission to a law society in a Canadian common law jurisdiction. Once a file is assessed by the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA), you may be asked to complete one or more exams and/or attend and complete specific law school courses within a prescribed time frame. Upon successful completion of these requirements, the NCA issues a Certificate of Qualification. The certificate will state that you have education and training equivalent to that of a graduate from a Canadian law school.

How can I take the examinations in Canadian law?

There are two ways of taking these examinations if they have not been taken as part of an Australian Law School degree. Once an assessment is complete, you may either complete assigned subjects with NCA “challenge exams” or complete assigned subjects at law school.

The more popular route for Canadians is the challenge exams.

NCA assessments focus on the competence of applicants in core common law subjects, including four Canadian subjects which are mandatory for all applicants:

  • Principles of Canadian Administrative Law
  • Canadian Constitutional Law
  • Canadian Criminal Law and Procedure
  • Foundations of Canadian Law

A syllabus and sample exam are available for each subject.

How much difference is there between Australian and Canadian law?

The principles and methodology of Australian and Canadian law are similar. The details of statutory provisions and case-law obviously differ, but an Australian law degree provides a good basis for taking examinations in Canadian law and for legal practice in Canada.

Will I be able to practice law in Australia?

These are two separate issues: qualification as an Australian lawyer and possession of a visa entitling you to work in Australia. Admission to the legal profession in Australia requires—depending on the state—the completion of either articles or a six-month Practical Legal Training program. Australian immigration operates on a “points” system for working visas. Some points are awarded for having an Australian degree, but additional points are required. Some of OzTREKK’s Australian law school graduates have qualified and are working in Australia. For further information, you should contact the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection or an Australian consulate in Canada.

Bond Law talks about professional admission to practice law in Canada

Many Canadians are deciding to study law at an Australian university. And why not? Many Australian law schools are among the top 50 in the world! But what comes after you’ve received your law degree?

Bond Law talks about professional admission to practice law in Canada

Learn more about Bond Law School

To practice law in Canada, you will need to complete articles and a bar admission course. To be eligible for articles and a bar admission course in any of the common law provinces, a graduate of an Australian law program will need a Certificate of Qualification (CQ) from the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. The NCA issues a CQ to international qualified applicants confirming that the applicant has an understanding and knowledge of Canadian law and knowledge equivalent to that of a graduate of a Canadian common law program.

Application for a CQ is made to the NCA at the end of your Bond Law degree. Once a Canadian law student receives a final graduation certificate and applies to the NCA, it currently takes about three months for the NCA to issue a CQ, or to advise which extra challenge exams the graduate must complete in Canada. In order for the NCA to issue the CQ, assessment criteria must be met.

Students are strongly encouraged consult the NCA website and conduct their own research to ensure they are aware of the requirements pertaining to their specific circumstances.

The NCA certifies that an applicant has

  • an understanding and knowledge of Canadian law, and
  • knowledge equivalent to that of a graduate of a Canadian common law program.

Equivalence to an approved Canadian common law, law degree serves as the benchmark when the NCA evaluates applicants with legal education or training in another country or in a Canadian civil law program. The NCA Certificate of Qualification does not, however, duplicate a Canadian law degree, which varies between law schools. NCA applicants may be asked to challenge examinations in subjects that all law schools may not require for a law degree.

Effective January 2015, the NCA introduced a new Assessment Policy. The new policy clarifies different aspects of the NCA Assessment process and brings the policy into compliance with the Federation’s National Requirement for Canadian Common Law Programs. Other NCA policies, including Assessment Appeal and deadlines for completing assigned requirements, are unchanged.

Recognized as one of the top-ranked Australian law schools, Bond Law School has earned a reputation for its innovative teaching methods, international focus, skills training, and the outstanding success of its graduates.
