Synopsis: This subject will give students an understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts of Australian constitutional law, State and Federal, and of the philosophy underlying them. Students will acquire the capacity to identify and analyse constitutional issues and to apply them in relevant factual contexts which they are likely to encounter in practice. The subject will examine briefly some different constitutional systems in nations with which Australian legal practitioners are likely to have dealings through trade contracts and discuss ways in which such different constitutional systems may affect dealings between citizens of those countries and Australia.

Assessment: Research essay: 30% Final examination: 70%
