Newcastle Law School academic honoured for making law accessible to all

A University of Newcastle (UON) academic has been recognised for his quality teaching practice and outstanding contributions to student learning, specifically for his leadership of the successful clinical program at the Newcastle Law School.

Mr Shaun McCarthy, Director of UON’s Legal Centre, was presented with a 2017 Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning, awarded by the Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT).

An advocate for innovative and multidisciplinary initiatives within the Bachelor of Laws and Juris Doctor, Mr McCarthy has noticeably transformed the way students think about clients and the law, while also supporting the people of Newcastle.

“I am passionate about providing people from all walks of life the means to access the law, whilst also ensuring our students have the opportunity to undertake important client casework.

“Students are exposed to vital public interest and human rights cases such as assisting refugees and investigating possible miscarriages of justice. To truly advocate for a better outcome is such a privilege and having this experience embedded in one’s practical study of the law offers our students a distinct advantage,” Mr McCarthy said.

The person behind UON’s successful Law on the Beach program, which provides free legal advice in an informal atmosphere to those who would otherwise struggle to access a service, Mr McCarthy said he was thrilled to receive a prestigious AAUT Citation.

“It is recognition of the importance that Newcastle Law School places on work integrated learning and clinical legal education. It highlights the real client experiences and opportunities law students have at the University of Newcastle Legal Centre, which I am incredibly proud to be part of,” he explained.

Mr McCarthy’s teaching approach and his introduction of real life client casework into his courses has been instrumental in enabling students to acquire and foster skills in advocacy and problem solving.

“Being a lawyer is not just about text, case studies and theoretical argument. While it is those things, a great theoretical lawyer will find themselves ultimately challenged when they step into their first case if they have been a student of law in the lecture theatre only.

“I hope my work with UON has helped shape positive experiences of those I have had the pleasure to teach, as well as helped lay the foundations for long and successful careers,” he said.

Newcastle law students love their new digs at NeW Space

UON’s Faculty of Business and Law and staff moved into the University of Newcastle’s (UON) $95-million NeW Space facility city in July. So far, the NeW Space facility has received rave reviews from students and the community… and some comedic ones—just have a peek at that video!

An interview with a Newcastle Law School professor

You’re heading to the University of Newcastle Law School for the 2018 intake? We’d like you to meet one of your professors!

Meet Newcastle Law School Associate Lecturer Sher Campbell, who specializes in Legal Education, Wellness and the Law, Disruptive Innovation and the Legal World, ADR, and Rural Law.

1. How long have you been teaching at Newcastle Law School?

An interview with a Newcastle Law School professor

Nearly ten years! I started as Dr John Anderson’s research assistant.

2. How would you describe your typical workday?

Dynamic! It’s like having a wonderful conversation with lots of people. That means by interacting in NewSpace, online or in class.

3. What do you find most enjoyable when teaching students?

I enjoy being with students who have so many possibilities and opportunities in their future. I love their refreshing perspectives, intelligence and their curiosity.

4. What are some of your key interests and hobbies?

Travelling and visiting art galleries as much as I can. Why? Art is an inspiration for change.

5. If you were studying law in 2017, what advice would you give to students?

Lucky you are studying at the University of Newcastle! We care about you and our aim is to provide you with the foundations for a long, happy and successful life in law.

The world of legal practice is changing. We regularly hear about new technologies that have the potential to remake long-term approaches to practicing law. You are part of an incredible revolution that is changing all of us in terms of how we function and how we do things. It is important to recognise that we are all a part of a new era that will change the justice sector as a whole.

To make sure that I do not fall by the wayside here, I am working with Law and Psychology researchers at the University of Newcastle and the ANU College of Law to reduce breaching of Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVOs) in NSW. We won a pitch tournament as part of the NSW Government Innovation Launch Program securing a grant of $150,000 from NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation to develop a mobile phone application for defendants of ADVOs.

The team is participating in an incubation program run with access to mentors and subject matter experts, education and support, as well as networking opportunities with potential partners and investors. The project will develop a mobile phone application called “Bernie” that will be freely available through lawyers advising respondents in ADVO applications at Newcastle Local Court.

Bernie reinforces practical and legal information given by the lawyers, information that is often forgotten due to heightened anxiety in court. Bernie can be personalised to include appointment reminders and court dates. It also provides useful support contacts, an emergency button for stressful situations, and psycho-social resources.

The team has contracted Mudbath Pty Ltd, a Newcastle-based app developer to develop the app and the program is supported by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet, Department of Finance Services and Innovation and Justice NSW. This technology journey for a baby-boomer has been wonderful and I have learnt so much. I am sure that you all have ideas about this technological and how it will affect your future in a positive way.

Questions about Australian law schools? Don’t miss the OzTREKK Study Law Abroad Webinars!

If you’re considering studying law, you know it can be extremely competitive to get into a Canadian law school—and there are very few places available. Not being offered a coveted place often forces some students to rethink their career goals. For others, it just makes them more determined: they begin to look at other options, like studying law abroad.

Questions about Australian law schools? Don't miss the OzTREKK Study Law Abroad Webinars!

Don’t forget to register for the upcoming law webinars!

Australian law schools have made a name for themselves in the world rankings arena, many of them placing in the top 50 in the world—and trust us when we say that means something, because there are hundreds of law schools in the world. But studying law in Australia raises a whole new crop of questions: What are the admissions requirements? Do I need the LSAT? What about the NCA exams? What about articling? What happens when I want to practice in Canada?

To help answer these questions and more, OzTREKK has organised three Study Law Abroad webinars.

We know you can’t always attend an in-person seminar, so we’re bringing an Australian law school alum, a current student, and an Australian law school faculty member to you! During the following webinars, you can find out more about what it’s really like to study law in Australia: getting adjusted, campus life, student groups, law program structures, graduating—and of course, practicing in Canada.

Professional placement for University of Newcastle Juris Doctor students

Professional placement during your law degree at the University of Newcastle

The Newcastle Juris Doctor / Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP) is the only fully integrated law degree and practical legal training course offered at an Australian university that is centred on acting for real clients.

Professional placement for University of Newcastle Juris Doctor students

Learn more about Newcastle Juris Doctor program

As part of the GDLP, students undertake 285 hours of legal professional workplace experience. A minimum of 105 hours of that practical experience is undertaken at the University of Newcastle Legal Centre, under the supervision of the law school’s solicitors.

University of Newcastle Legal Centre is the centrepiece of the Newcastle Law School’s clinical program. Here students engage with the community and with legal professionals to develop practical skills in the application of the law. The centre offers a range of services to members of the public, including free legal advice and assistance, representation, law clinics and community education seminars. All of the services provided by the Legal Centre are overseen by in-house lawyers and delivered together with law students.

Newcastle Law School staff also assist students to arrange external placements at other law firms to make up the remaining 180 professional training hours. This is very attractive to potential employers and gives Newcastle graduates a significant advantage over graduates from other universities whose only practical experience has involved simulated client advice sessions, rather than providing advice and other legal assistance to real clients.

Program: Juris Doctor / Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice
Location: Newcastle (Callaghan)
Duration: 3 years
Semester intakes: February and June each year
Application deadline: Candidates are encouraged to apply at least three months prior to the program’s start date.

Entry Requirements

Entry to the program is available to students that have successfully completed a 3-year bachelor degree in any discipline other than law, from a recognized institution.

University of Newcastle opens NeW Space facility

The University of Newcastle’s (UON) $95-million NeW Space facility will soon be welcoming students and the community, with staff moving into the building last week.

UON Vice-Chancellor Professor Caroline McMillen said this first stage in the transition of staff and students was an exciting milestone for the university.

“Over the past four years, we have watched this remarkable building take shape in the heart of the CBD, visibly transforming the Newcastle skyline and contributing to the renewal of our city and region,” Professor McMillen said.

“Opening the doors to our staff on Monday is a proud moment. While a building may have ‘great bones’ and a strong physical presence, it is the people who work and study there who will deliver the full potential of its design for the benefit of our community.”

UON’s Faculty of Business and Law and staff from the new School of Creative Industries will move into the city from Monday, with 320 staff working from the new city campus this week. Up to 3,000 students will study at NeW Space from the start of Semester 2, 2017.

NeW Space will deliver new academic and research programs in business, law and emerging fields including creative industries, innovation and entrepreneurship. The new campus will also play an important role in connecting the university with business, industry and community partners in Newcastle and the Hunter.

As part of NeW Space planning, the university has developed an integrated transport strategy to support students, staff and community members travel to and from NeW Space.

Transport options include new Callaghan-based park-and-ride facilities with over 300 parking bays available, a free UON-exclusive express shuttle bus service running every half hour during semester, and the introduction of a new Liftango ridesharing app to encourage ride sharing with 20 dedicated RideSharing car parks adjacent to The Conservatorium. One hundred fifty parking spaces with an independent parking operator have also been secured for staff and students in the CBD to support the university’s transition into the city.

University of Newcastle Chief Operating Officer, Nat McGregor, said the university also strongly encouraged active travel and public transport.

“We are actively encouraging staff and students to consider a range of travel options, including more sustainable modes of transport, such as walking, cycling and public transport,” he said.

“The university also continues to advocate for better and more frequent public transport options for our students and staff. We are working closely with transport providers and those that are responsible for planning the future transport strategies for the city and the region to facilitate further improvements to service provision.”

Independent analysis show that NeW Space will contribute $1.3bn in economic benefit to Newcastle and the Hunter, including almost $200 million during construction and a further $134 million annually flowing from the emergence of the CBD as a vibrant student hub.

NeW Space was supported by Australian Government funding of $30 million through the Education Investment Fund Regional Priorities Round, NSW Government funding of $25 million and an investment of $40 million from UON.

University of Newcastle Law School

Newcastle Law School will be moving to NeW Space, where law students will enjoy the highest quality social learning spaces, digital library services and information commons, collaborative learning and research spaces, and facilities for engagement with industry, business and the community.

Program: Juris Doctor / Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice
Location: Newcastle
Duration: 3 years
Intakes: February and July
Application deadline: Candidates are encouraged to apply a minimum of three months prior to the program’s start date.

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.

Meet Newcastle Law School human rights professor Amy Macguire

Prof Dr Amy Maguire (Photo: UON)

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

Program: Juris Doctor
Location: Newcastle (Callaghan)
Duration: 3 years
Semester intake: February and July
Application deadline: June 9, 2017 for the July intake; however, candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
