Reviews and tips for LAW109

This is such a time consuming subject. They'll assign group tasks when assessments are due and in general I found LAW109 very stressful. Because there is so much content under crim law the lectures are very brief. Yet, we are expected to write about the topic in great detail. The readings are ridiculously time consuming and the textbook overall is just so hard to follow. I didn't bother doing the readings in the end. You really need to put in a lot of effort to do well.

Good unit, stay on top of material. Disliked the inconsistent marking standards across tutors.

Assignments were very time consuming regardless even when the weighting was only 10%. Marking criteria was harsh and often confusing and the markers and tutors (Liz) never made properly clear what was expected. They did not give clear instructions causing a lot of confusion and a loss of marks. Elyse is passionate about the topic, however she wasn't very helpful when it came to answering questions and her lecturing style was disagreeable. Liz was my tutor, however I found her teaching style very drab, monotonous and she was ignorant to many aspects of NSW Criminal Law, having practiced in Queensland only. Conversely, Kevin Yee is a fantastic tutor. Had him a few times and he really brought back the passion and interest into the subject. Wish I'd had him as my actual tutor. This unit could have been better had the convenor and tutor been different.

Interesting unit, lecturer was very organised and generally responded to questions. Wasn't anywhere near as difficult as people made it out to be. They have changed the course structure a lot though.

Very well taught and organised. Wouldn't have been possible without the assistance of Dr Shireen Daft and my tutor Elyse Methven
