Subject Description
The Asian Legal Systems Field Study aims to provide students with an introduction to the legal systems of selected Asian countries, with emphasis on features of those systems which differ from the Australian and other common-law legal systems, as well as an introduction to contemporary legal issues and the domestic practice of law. The subject follows a comparative approach to the study of law and provides a practical understanding of the cultural, historical, economic, political and religious settings in which the law operates in Asian countries. The lectures and field trips assist students to reflect on and evaluate the efficacy of the law in terms of access to justice and to challenge their thinking about law in the real world outside of their academic readings.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Understand the legal systems of selected Asian countries, and identify their differences from the Australian and other common-law legal systems.
2. Gain a deeper understanding of the cultural, economic and religious settings in which the law operates in selected Asian countries.
3. Gain a practical understanding of contemporary legal issues and the domestic practice of law in selected Asian countries.
4. Reflect on and evaluate the law in terms of access to justice and efficacy in the real world.
5. Demonstrate an awareness of the challenges and benefits of global legal practice and knowledge of post-graduate study options and work opportunities in Asia.
