MP15 Major Project
Students who have enrolled in the Master of Laws (Applied Law) without a major, are required to complete the Major Project in one of the practice areas offered by the College’s Masters Program; it is usually the final subject. The Major Project is taken over one intake and is a research-based project focusing on best practice in your chosen topic resulting in the submission of an 8,000-10,000 word paper. This is an independent learning subject involving non-timetabled study. Students should expect the weekly workload involved in research and writing to be approximately ten to twelve hours per week.
Eligible students are required to submit a synopsis, one page (maximum) in length at least two weeks before intake commences. The synopsis will be sent to the supervising lecturer for approval or feedback. Once approved, the student will be formally enrolled in the Major Project. If not approved, feedback will be provided to assist the student to refine the topic
