Griffith Law School is placed in the top 50 law schools in the world and research in law is a key strength of the university,’’ he said.

“The centre will continue to leverage off these strengths and expand our research presence nationally and internationally. It will undertake interdisciplinary research responsive to domestic and global change.”​​

Two of the current nine Australian Research Council Future Fellows in law, Professor Elena Marchetti and Associate Professor Susan Harris-Rimmer, feature in the line-up of the Centre’s staff from Griffith Law School—with other academics from law, environmental sciences, international relations, business, health, criminology and humanities.

The centre’s four research programs focus on solving legal problems posed in the areas of

  • Law, Governance and Global Change
  • Law & Nature
  • Law, Risk and Innovation

Celebrating National Law Week in Australia

National Law Week in Australia takes place throughout Australia in May each year. This year, it runs from May 16 – 20. 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.

Australian Law Schools in Australia

Bond University Law School Moot Court

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 at the whole community. 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.

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. Bachelor of Laws 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).

Which law programs do OzTREKK Australian Law Schools offer?

Australian Law Schools offer either a graduate-entry LLB or JD and most offer an undergraduate-entry LLB:

Griffith graduate lands UN leadership role

In the eyes of Chris Eigeland, studying at Griffith University presented the perfect platform to make his mark on the world.

His determination and his ambition were nurtured, supported, and ultimately accelerated by a university environment that gave him the impetus to bring change to the lives of the poor in Haiti, East Timor, and, more recently, South Africa through his groundbreaking Schoolbag initiative.

His relentless efforts and unflinching focus have now been recognised with his selection as Australia’s Youth Representative to the United Nations for 2016.

“Griffith has been the ideal place to study, allowing me to kick-start my career by pursuing my passion for human rights, education and the environment,” says Chris, who completed a double degree at the end of 2013.

The Australian Youth Representative is appointed by the United Nations in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, with the annual recipient dedicating 12 months to the job of unearthing the issues most important to young Australians.

Chris will deliver his findings in a report to national leaders at the end of his term, and will also address the UN General Assembly in New York as part of the Australian delegation.

“This is an incredible leadership opportunity which will put me in the same room as global leaders and international NGOs striving to bring about positive change in the world and improve human rights around the globe.

“My education experience and my university experience at Griffith combined to fill me with the confidence and knowledge to seize the opportunities that have led to this achievement.”

At the end of 2015, Chris completed an international associateship in the Constitutional Court of South Africa, the country’s highest court.

“This court embodies the transformation of South Africa with its focus on dignity and human rights,” says Chris who completed a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Arts.

His role involved researching and advising on current trends in international law, particularly in the area of constitutional and human rights jurisprudence.

“This associateship has undoubtedly deepened my understanding of nations undergoing democratic transitions, and I now have an enhanced appreciation of the immense emotional and historical weight that accompanies such a shift.”

Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Arts

If you want to play a role in the influential media industry or the arts, this double degree will suit you. You will learn about contemporary culture and society, media and the arts, and languages and cultures. You will also develop the skills and knowledge needed for a career in law.

On graduation, you may choose to specialise in law, combine your skills to work as a specialist media or arts lawyer, or use your arts qualification to explore a wider spectrum.

Law component

Griffith Law School offers a professional legal curriculum that focuses on core areas of legal practice and the legal skills that lawyers must have. You will have the opportunity to choose law electives based on your interests, including clinical courses that emphasise practical legal skills, insights and experience.

You will make connections between law and ethics, legal theory, Indigenous issues, and internationalisation. You will also develop interdisciplinary understandings of law and legal work.

You will take courses such as Constitutional Law, Legal Theory, Law and the Modern State, Corporate Governance and Regulation, Criminal Law, and Property Law.

Arts component

You will have the option to choose a major and develop specialist expertise in contemporary fields such as Journalism, Public Relations, Islam-West Relations Security Studies or Criminal Justice. Or, you can study more traditional fields such as Sociology, History and Literary Studies.

Death penalty for drug crimes denounced

Raising awareness of the use of the death penalty for drug offences globally was the focus of a special dinner held in recognition of the 13th World Day Against the Death Penalty in Brisbane recently.

The dinner, hosted by one of Brisbane’s leading human rights lawyers and friend of the Griffith Law School, Stephen Keim SC, featured guest speaker, Barrister Julian McMahon, who represented Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.

Chan and Sukumaran were both convicted of drug trafficking in Bali and were ultimately executed on the tiny prison island of Nusakambangan on April 29 this year.

Griffith Law School lecturers Dr Olivera Simic and Zoe Rathus attended the dinner.

Dr Simic says the two men reformed themselves and were contributing positively to the world in which they lived.

“Sadly, that was not enough to save them from execution,” Dr Simic says.

“In his presentation Julian outlined the devastatingly uncertain lead-up for the families as the news kept on changing about if and when the executions would occur.

“He also described the raw anguish after the event and reminded us that it was not just our citizens who died at the hands of a State that day. There were six other prisoners shot—citizens of Brazil, Nigeria, Spain and Indonesia.”

Julian’s first death row client was Van Tuong Nguyen who was convicted of drug trafficking in Singapore in the mid-2000s. Van was born in a Thailand refugee camp to Vietnamese parents and after his mother re-settled in Australia, suffered violent beatings from his stepfather.

Griffith Law School Lecturer Ms Zoe Rathus (AM) says according to Julian, it is the poor, the vulnerable, people of colour and the dispossessed who tend to face the death penalty, no matter where it is applied.

Also speaking at the dinner was the Hon Phillip Ruddock MP, who has been a long time campaigner against the death penalty.

He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1973, which was only six years after the last of Australia’s judicially decreed executions – the hanging of Ronald Ryan.

Mr Ruddock MP says Ryan was also born into poverty, alcoholism and violence.

He explained that the group of countries whose citizens were recently executed with Chan and Sukumaran in Bali provided a basis for some multi-State action but emphasised the difficulties of working in this space while the USA still used capital punishment.

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.
