The TC Beirne School of Law is offering a unique new course in China. Up to twelve Bachelor of Laws students will be supported by grants to study in China for two weeks  in January 2018 ($3000 per student). The project will explore issues in Criminal Justice from a comparative perspective. Students will mix academic study with field-based learning, such as institutional visits and observations. The project will equip students with a distinct advantage for the pursuit of future opportunities in China and throughout the Indo Pacific.

Applications due 4:00pm on 6 September 2017.

The project is part of the New Colombo Plan Mobility Program. Knowledge of the Chinese justice system and China more broadly will be developed through direct learning in China and through pre-departure courses at UQ led by subject matter experts.

While abroad, students will benefit from the opportunity to engage with academics, as well as legal practitioners and members of the judiciary.. Upon their return, students will undertake independent research on key issues relating to Criminal Justice, including crime and punishment, the financing of terror, and police use of lethal force.

To be eligible for funding, students must:

  • be enrolled in a Bachelor of Laws (or associated dual program) at TC Beirne School of Law
  • be Australian citizens
  • not have dual citizenship or residency rights in China
  • be 18 years of age or older
  • not have previously received a Short Term Mobility Project Grant.

Please note, you do not have to be eligible for funding to participate in the course, but you will have to pay additional expenses.
