Context and Method in Australian Law takes an innovative approach to introductory teaching and learning for first year law students. The approach is based on inquiry-guided learning and emphasises higher-order, creative and critical thinking skills because these transferrable skills underpin student learning, legal analysis and future legal practice. Context and Method in Australian Law develops these fundamental, transferrable skills through a comprehensive and innovative coverage of the historical, institutional, analytical and statutory context of law in Australia. This title includes a chapter on legal research and legal writing contributed by Dr Narrelle Morris, a Senior Lecturer with Curtin Law School.
