In 2022, the Semester Master Classes will offer students the opportunity to complete the subject LAW001: Introduction to Law.

This subject is designed to provide an introduction to the legal concepts and skills necessary to complete further legal education at a university level. In this subject, students will gain an appreciation of the nature and sources of law, the institutions and processes that underpin the Australian Legal System, and the practical skills required to find, use and understand the law. This subject will also focus on principles of contract law as the foundation of commercial transactions with attention also given to the principles of tort law and consumer law. Upon successful completion of this subject, students will gain both the knowledge and skills base necessary to succeed in a university law degree or law-related major.

Blended delivery

Due to COVID-19, the 2022 Semester Master Classes will use a blended delivery model incorporating self-directed online learning, staff-led online classes and on-campus classes. If required by COVID-19 restrictions, program delivery will be changed to be fully online.

LAW 001: Introduction to Law is a university level subject that will be delivered over 15 weeks (total 60 hours) in blended online and face-to-face at both our Bega or Batemans Bay campuses. Students will be supported by UOW academics, staff and student mentors during their study.

Our Semester Master Class has also been registered as a board endorsed course for the HSC and on successful completion of LAW001, it will count as one unit towards your HSC (note: in line with NESA guidelines, this subject is not ATAR eligible) as well as six credit points towards future study at UOW.

Successful completion of the program will guarantee you a UOW Early Admission interview or offer if you apply to UOW Early Admission in 2022.
