POLS2116 – Politics of Law & Justice in Australia 50.4

This course was a real disappointment and I really struggle to understand how it is considered a third year course. There was not enough content to fill a 2hr lecture which dragged every week and always finished early. The guest lecturer from a community legal centre was appalling and he was very rude and disrespectful, at one point arguing with our lecturer across the room, criticising today's law students for the lack of skills they acquire in law school. He also refusing to talk about the politics of funding allocation when the lecturer asked him to, saying "these students don't want to hear about that". However, given he was lecturing to political science students about the politics of law, I struggle to understand that. Although the lecturer Dr Cvetkovski is a very nice person and very helpful, I felt this course has been a waste of time and HECS fees as I probably would have learned more in a grade 12 legal studies course.

POLS2116 – Politics of Law & Justice in Australia 88.0

Dr Cvetkovski presents a fascinating and engaging discussion on access to justice and the legal system in Queensland, in an easy to digest format for non-lawyer. Fascinating and useful for lawyers and nonlawyers alike. The course content is provided via indepth powerpoint slides, a small number of journal articles in the course reader, and a detailed learning guide.
