Government Accountability is available in the Master of Laws, Juris Doctor and Bachelor of Laws (Honours) programs. It explores at an advanced level the evolution of key principles and frameworks in Australian administrative law, and the problematic and now fading `public/private divide'. It examines the drivers, structures and core operations of the bourgeoning `integrity sector' in Australia - which includes auditors-general, anti-corruption bodies, public sector commissioners, freedom of information commissioners and ombudsman offices. The course also focusses in on select contemporary pressure points in current law and policy, and the broader patterns and trajectories that these reflect. It is delivered in four extended seminars (two seminars in each of two weeks), and will involve supervised research tasks and assignments.
