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:

Interpret cultural texts, such as literature, cinema, television, as legal fictions

Appraise how various cultural texts' representations of legal process, system and concepts critically reimagine law and jurisprudence

Demonstrate an understanding of how the examination of texts from two different fields gives a new cultural study of law and a new legal study of culture.
