Reviews and tips for 70103

Enjoyed it because of classmates and the group I got for my assignments. Actual content is manageable, not too bad

So. Much. Fun. Seriously. I had a brilliant, lively teacher who made my weekly 3-hour seminars not only tolerable, but the highlight of my academic week! However, my friend had a not-so-energetic teacher who turned this subject into her own personal living hell. The readings are easy and most of the content is commonsense to anyone with basic ethics and morals. The cases are interesting, and the subject overall really gets you thinking about what values you hold close in the personal and professional spheres of your life. TIPS: 1. Do your readings - they are probably the easiest readings you will get in any of the Priestly 11 subjects. This subject involves A LOT of class discussion and hypothetical situations. Don't play yourself into being the class idiot. 2. Speak up in class - participation is marked, and every mark counts towards getting that HD. This is also a great class to make friends in as you really get to know your classmates through their philosophy and personal stance on many controversial issues. 3. Take notes throughout the semester - this is a relatively laid back subject, but it can be content heavy learning all of the regulations and formalities that are expected of legal professionals. Final exam is open book, so make sure you do them right! Good luck, and here's hoping you get a good teacher!

Very interesting, too rushed. Felt a bit clueless end of semester entering into exams

I was super excited to do this subject - but it ended up being a massive let down. The seminars are poorly organised and there seems to be no greater overarching consistency across the semester. The seminar format is poor and the never-ending self-reflective assessments are ridiculous. This is perhaps one of the few subjects where I believe a class participation mark would be beneficial to the subject but ELJ currently doesn't have one. My experience in this subject was really poor which is upsetting because it contains important content for later years and had potential to be a great subject.

Offering quite the respite from the uninteresting co-introductory law subject, Foundations of Law (Subject Code: 70102), Ethics, Law and Justice is quite an interesting subject. Perhaps introducing an ethics course is necessary, and I thought it would be boring going off the name, but it is quite an interesting subject, in which you look at practical situations, discuss intriguing hypothetical questions etcetera. It is a subject which flourishes on discussion and having only the one three hour class a week, as oppose to two sessions of two hour classes means you won't get bored of this subject quickly. Complete your readings so you're prepared to discuss! 20% of your mark comes from class participation and the group assignment (another fun task where you can research a topic of your choice related to ethics and present it to the class in whatever way you want, a talk show, a quiz, a PowerPoint, a role-play interview style etcetera). The final exam is open book and hones in on the important concepts discussed during the course; and you must reference the sources in your answers during the exam (using the last name and page number). Be prepared and enjoy the subject.
