  • In this course students will be introduced to the general principles of international criminal law and the basics of international criminal procedure. In addition to discussing the general legal obligations to ensure respect for the laws of armed conflict/international humanitarian law, the course will include a practical focus on the legal frameworks for investigation and prosecution of both international and domestic atrocity crimes. It will commence with a general view of the legal sources of international criminal law, before focusing on specific international criminal law provisions. Students will complete an individual research project on a legal issue, that will form the basis of their final paper - which will be a submission for the prosecution or defence – of a fictitious ICC case. It offers students an opportunity to translate legal principles of international law into practice, and understand the challenges presented in enforcing international legal obligations, from both a theoretical and practical perspective. The course includes multiple guest lecturers with experience in the investigation and prosecution of international crimes domestically and internationally.

  • Practitioners commonly have a good working knowledge of the principles and rules which govern the conduct of civil litigation in Queensland and Federal courts. The challenge is to develop the further knowledge and skills which are required to use these principles and rules to best effect - whilst avoiding common pitfalls. The purpose of this course is to draw upon the experience of a wide range of leading practitioners to analyse: (a) the purpose and content of the key principles and rules governing civil procedure; and (b) the strategies and approaches which used in practice to apply these principles and rules to best effect, whilst avoiding common pitfalls. The focus of discussion will be on civil proceedings in the Supreme Court of Queensland. However, specific consideration will also be given to civil proceedings in the Federal Court, in QCAT and on the commercial list of the Supreme Court. The course will seek to examine the purpose and content of the key principles and rules, with a focus on current controversies and pitfalls and the practices currently adopted to develop appropriate strategies and approaches.
