Content

The unit aims to provide students with an understanding of migration law. The unit analyses the substantive and procedural rules and principles governing this area of law, and discusses policy considerations behind them, equipping students with the basic background needed to work in the area, as well as providing useful skills in statutory interpretation for students who wish to work in workplace or employment law, family law, and several areas of public policy, as well as providing necessary background awareness as to where immigration issues arise in these areas of law, as they regularly will in a cosmopolitan society such as Australia.
