The School's Executive Committee will allocate a supervisor for each successful applicant if the applicant has not already approached a Law lecturer prior to application. Candidates are urged to make contact with their supervisor as soon as possible to finalise the topic of their research paper. The onus of making this contact rests upon the candidate.
Candidates must enrol in the research unit (MLL401 Legal Project) in the approved trimester as indicated in their application form. Students who are not given their first trimester of preference will be notified accordingly.
The research paper submitted in fulfilment of the requirements of this unit must then be completed by the beginning of the examination period in that trimester and submitted to the supervisor for marking. Research papers are marked by a member of staff, or external examiner, and a grade entered by the Unit Chair of Legal Project, within the time allowed for returning results in that trimester.
The examination periods are usually scheduled as follows:
Under no circumstances will the date for submitting a research paper be extended unless the School's Executive Committee or Unit Chair gives approval.
The Unit Chair of Legal Project is Dr John Morss. Should a candidate have any questions of a general nature about this unit they should be directed to the Unit Chair by phoning +61 3 9244 6236. Questions about your thesis should be directed to your supervisor.
