LAWS8195 Taking Facts Seriously: Fact-finding, Evidence & Proof

JURD7595 Taking Facts Seriously: Fact-finding, Evidence & Proof

This course takes a theoretically sophisticated but practically orientated look at how facts that may constitute evidence are used to prove particular outcomes in legal settings. It is not in any way a conventional course about the law of evidence. Rather, it is primarily about the nature of factual inference and it stresses the practical salience of forms of inquiries, for example in formulating and interpreting forensic science evidence. It considers how 'evidence' might establish 'proof' in terms of story-telling and trial narratives, as well as through formalised representations of inferential relationships (such as Wigmore charts and Bayes nets) and calculations of probability.

Available to students enrolled in Juris Doctor, Master of Laws, Master of Law and Management , Graduate Diploma in Law, Master of Criminal Justice & Criminology, Graduate Diploma in Criminal Justice & Criminology, Master of Dispute Resolution and Graduate Diploma in Dispute Resolution.

 

LAWS8147 The Australian Judiciary: Judging & the Judicial Process

JURD7447 The Australian Judiciary: Judging & the Judicial Process

This course looks at the institutional and individual role of the judge in the justice system. The aim of the course is to examine the constitutional position of the judiciary, the role of the judge in securing access to justice for the Australian public, including the important development of case management, the process of hearing and deciding cases and judicial accountability.

Available to students enrolled in Juris Doctor, Master of Laws, Master of Law and Management , Graduate Diploma in Law, Master of Dispute Resolution and Graduate Diploma in Dispute Resolution.
