The diverse background and experience of both students and lecturers is a strength of the program; for example, practising lawyers can contextualise the application of legal principles, based on their experience as legal practitioners, whereas international students and members of School can contribute comparative perspectives and knowledge, based on their experience in non-Australian jurisdictions.
