Did unit as part of Business Law major. Really enjoyed it and found it my favourite unit of this semester. Slightly more challenging than commercial law in terms of citing specific case law and legislation, but found it much more relevant and applicable to a future career. Sam explained the topics in a clear way, using examples and making sure that students understood the content. This carried through to the tutorials he taught. Although some found him harsh, I appreciated his firm style of teaching that corrected inaccuracies in our answers and pushed us to get the correct answer. Felt like he wanted us to succeed and not make simple mistakes. Participation worth 10%, just show up to class and be prepared. One online test worth 30%, also relatively easy but prepare well as he tries to trick you. Exam worth 60%, open book, easy to do well if you can manage time and have studied.

Bizarre unit. Sam is extremely dry, speaks agonisingly slowly (2x speed replays are a necessity), and is clearly disinterested in teaching, bordering on outright contempt for students. This is, however, very funny if you don't take it personally. I genuinely thought he had been fired at one point in the semester, but that's a story for another day. Seemed relatively easy to do well if you did the work asked of you (exam results pending), but very unsatisfying unit. I did it as an elective simply because I'm interested in law, and the content was generally interesting to me personally even if the lectures were not. That being said, I don't recommend doing this unit unless you absolutely have to.

The unit coordinator literally said in the first lecture, "I miss covid when I didn't have to see your faces", feels like that explains what type of unit this is. If you don't have to do the unit don't do it. Unbelievably unorganised, the lectures seem to make sense and then suddenly the tutorial questions expect much more. Saving grace is the exam is quite similar to the tutorial questions.

A lot of content to learn.Buying the textbooks and reading through them help a lot with understanding the content. The take home assignment is a little tough, and make sure you apply the right statutes and cases. For my open book exam, I wrote summary sheets of the topics being examined. Final exam is full on. You need to know the content off the top of your head so you don't stump over questions and run out of time like I did.

Very interesting unit, Peter is a great lecturer but he's though. I found the assessments challenging as not used to law units, make sure you understand and do well the IRAC method and know how to reference for the assignment. As mentioned, this unit requires a lot of work, summarise everything and focus more on the topics being assessed.

Really loved this unit. Was administered very well an the lecturer was very thorough and explained things very well. There is an open book exam and the best way to prepare for this is to write up tutorial questions using the IRAC method. Lots of reading and work is required to do well in this unit.

Very thorough and comprehensive study of company law, even through the lectures. Supplement your lectures with the required textbook for other case law. This unit has an open book exam (in 2015), so the best way to prepare for this is to have written out answers of your tutorial questions with the relevant case law or legislation. It's a good idea to have that checked by your tutor before using it for the exams.
