    I just got this task a few days ago and it's due in 4 weeks time after the holidays, and I wouldn't mind getting some help due to the fact that it seems like such a large task, not to mention the speech I'm presenting tomorrow for Legal.

    Re: Year 11 Preliminary LEGAL STUDIES - MEDIA FILE / RESEARCH TASK

    My school makes me use original articles because they say people can plagiarise by photocopying other students articles which are printed ones off the internet -.-

    So I can't find any recent articles relating to
    - the purpose of the hierachy and jurisdiction of state and fed courts
    - the role and structure of parliament and the legislative process
    - the role of the high court in the interpretation of the constituion
    -how international law impacts on and is incorporated into Australian law
    - the operation of the different mechanisms of reform.

    I have just received this assessment and I am having trouble finding cases that illustrate: courts' ability to create common law. They must be cases so can anyone suggest some?

    Look for cases that set precedents for future cases.

    An example could be The Queen v Tang [2008] HCA 39 (28 August 2008), a case which defined the meaning of human trafficking and slavery. i think thats right

    hope it helps

    Re: Year 11 Preliminary LEGAL STUDIES - MEDIA FILE / RESEARCH TASK

    I go this task last week and am having trouble getting my head around as what defines a legal term as we must list all the legal terms in our 10 sources. Here is an example of what one of the sources I am using and the terms I have found. Are they right?
    Source: http://www.hrw.org/print/news/2015/0...rgaining-chips
    Legal Terms:
    counterterrorism laws
    free speech
    policies
    offences
    criminal penalties
    unauthorised disclosures of information
    refugee status
    civil liberties
    detention
    bilateral
    authorities violated international law
    torture
    persecution
    detainees
    rape
    abuses
    foreign policy
    asylum seekers

    Thank you!
