Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

develop an advanced understanding of selected topics in public international law, including the practice and procedures of the International Court of Justice

exercise professional judgment by developing appropriate written and oral arguments (based on the facts) to a hypothetical problem

build upon existing research and legal writing skills by undertaking high level self-directed legal research, particularly in the area of public international law and the practice of International Court of Justice, including locating, synthesising and analysing relevant material from primary and secondary sources to demonstrate a critical understanding of the principles of public international law

collaborate effectively with other Jessup team members to undertake research and prepare written submissions with a high level of autonomy, and reflect on and assess individual and team performance in relation to oral and written submissions.
