Legal Research Project is a core course in the JD program that requires students to research and write a substantial paper on a topic approved by the course coordinator.
Each year, RMIT JD students are given an opportunity to contribute to the work of the Centre for Innovative Justice and integrate this work into their degree by being part of its research.
Places available: Varies, but usually no more than four.
Course credit available: If selected, JD students can complete this work for Legal Research Project (LAW 1040/LAW 2424) subject to meeting course prerequisites.
The CIJ’s Student Program Coordinator, Anna Howard, is available to discuss these opportunities with students. Interested students should contact Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
