LAWS1115 Preparation

NB: If downloading the 60MB readings off blackboard isn't your thing … the homework we assigned to Jeremy was to load the compressed Learning Guide version on Google.

  • This article can be found on p. 59 of the Learning Guide.

  • This article can be found on p. 70 of the Learning Guide.

Read the two articles on the Victorian Charter of Rights.

  • A reputable source says that it's on Blackboard. This is assuming that people ACTUALLY go to their lectures prepared … :v :v :v

The Course Profile also recommends the following. I will not judge you if you go for it (seriously):
