The Law School utilises technology throughout its teaching programs to enrich the learning process and enhance student access to legal resources and research tools. Technology and multimedia help to foster independent critical learning and equip students with a rich set of legal research skills that are essential in today's diverse professional legal environment.
The Law School seeks to enhance and distinguish its courses by exploiting new instructional methods that use learning technologies and Internet communication. Where appropriate, face-to-face classroom interactions may be supplemented with multimedia programs, network-based communications, state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities, and other interactive computer-based tools for learning, teaching and research.
A significant number of multimedia learning tools have been integrated into the curriculum to provide students with an alternative means of achieving a deep understanding of the law. Examples include online tutorials and case studies on issues such as native title, the legislative process and understanding law reports, an interactive simulation which allows students to participate in a trial, programs that challenge students to analyse crime scene evidence, and online virtual communities which permit students to engage with colleagues from Canadian universities to explore emerging topics in globalisation.
