LAW429: Information Technology Law
LAW503: Taxation Law:
LAW521: Health Law and Ethics
LAW402: Family Law

LAW415: Dispute Management
LAW421: Foundations of Commercial Law
LAW423: Intellectual Property Law

*also, if you have any other law units that were fantastic, please recommend

LAW521 - is fantastic! I loved it as was LAW415, I would recommend both. LAW415 is very practical and you get to role play disputes so its very fun! I am doing LAW421, LAW428 and LAW522 this year so I'll let you know. I'd also recommend LAW438 - access to justice although apps would be closed for this year, look at it fot next year

Thank you so much - just as I was struggling to decide what to pick :)
I know, it can be hard give the limited information we get. Also don't rely on the handbook dates when things are running, they often say they will run and they wont...check out the email the dean sent to your student email.

LOL - the handbook is optimistic propaganda designed to lull students into a false sense of satisfaction and excitement...I read all those emails from the dean - a joy! In a way I'm disappointed at how few units actually will be running, but then in another way, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Random - are they going to get more staff for the law department or is it wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking ;)

Also wishful thinking- the idea that they will actually decrease 4th and 5th year subject workloads to correspond to the cp standardisation. I'll believe it when I see it
