Student contribution band : Band 4

Version produced : 23 May 2022


There were originally two Criminal Law courses in the 4 year LLB. With the introduction of the new 3 year LLB, only one Criminal Law course is now offered. There is now a need for a Criminal Law elective, particularly for students who want to practice criminal law or work for the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The focus is on Australian jurisdictions that have Criminal Codes: Commonwealth, Qld, WA, Tas, ACT and NT. The elective provides the opportunity to compare and contrast the Codes, particularly the Cth Code with the Griffith Codes, and drill down into criminal law issues in far greater detail than in the core course.
