The SCU school of Law and Justice regularly offers a course on Public Interest Advocacy. Effective advocacy requires a broad legal knowledge that transects the traditional demarcations between different branches of the law. Important aspects of other disciplines such as mediation, dispute resolution, and social, political and media skills are also required.
The School of Law and Justice is offers the unit some years and not others depending on interest as part of its Byron bay Summer Law School.
This unit aims to introduce students to a broad range of skills and techniques necessary to bring about useful social change in a highly corporatised and technocratic society and to develop their capabilities as effective advocates of public interest concerns in both a formal legal environment, as well as in a broader social context.
The Summer Law School is ideal for students, lawyers, industry professionals, senior administrators and those requiring knowledge and understanding from the units on offer.
