I used these notes to receive an overall mark of 82 (Distinction) in Federal Constitutional Law.

There are two sets of notes to buy:
1) Problem Question notes - useful for the legal principles
2) Theoretical notes - useful for the essay component

In summary, these notes have been comprehensively put together in a template format and are based on the substantive topics covered in Fed Con. My notes are all COLOUR CODED and NEATLY ORGANISED into different subsections, tables and headings. They also have MINI-PRACTISE QUESTIONS, DIAGRAMS and PICTURES integrated into the notes.

In these notes, I've scaffolded a template that can be used in both the mid-sem and final exam problem question. The scaffold contains the issues, rule (law) and then possible ways to apply the law (ie. applying the facts of the case). I have included blank spaces where it is appropriate to apply the facts.

See sample for contents page. Heavy emphasis placed on HEADS OF POWER and the LIMITATIONS as this is tested in the mid-sems and finals.

I hope these notes will be as useful to you as they were for me in Fed Con. Having notes COLOUR CODED and NEATLY ORGANISED was a real asset in a time pressured exam.
