OzTREKK Bond Law Webinar

Would you like to hear about Bond Law School? Here’s your opportunity to chat with a current Bond Law student Ryan Stubbs.

Ryan is the current president of the Canadian Law Students’ Association at Bond University. Originally from Hamilton, Ontario, Ryan received his undergraduate degree from Carleton University with a major in Law and a minor in English Language and Literature. He has been a member of the CLSA for the past 4 semesters and will be graduating from Bond with a Juris Doctor in April 2019.

According to Ryan, his favourite part of studying in Australia is living by the beach! “Being able to see the ocean from my apartment balcony and walk down to the beach at any time is the best way to unwind after a day of grinding it out in the library.

“After I am finished at Bond, I hope to return to the Toronto area and practice in the area of entertainment law. It is my career goal to work with musicians and other content creators in the entertainment industry.”

What would you like to know about the Juris Doctor program? Ask Ryan! This webinar will be hosted in a Q&A format, so the floor is open to your questions!

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.

Apply to the University of Newcastle Law School!
