The assignment should be written in the style of an essay. All assertions should be supported with appropriate references to Australian law (cases) and relevant articles/journals. Students should be wary of using internet sources that are not of acceptable academic standard.
Footnotes and bibliography (Australian Guide to Legal Citation format) are required. Other referencing styles (e.g., Harvard style) are not to be used for this assignment.
