Development of LAWS4701

Scope: BEL is developing a final-year course which synthesises core knowledges from foundational and advanced units across the law degree in a Simulated Professional Learning Environment. Students will work online and face-to-face in a “law firm” of 4-5 students, representing one of the virtual clients in the dispute.

Benefit: Students will have the opportunity to practice and build skills in multidisciplinary teamwork and solve contextualised, complex problems. These capabilities are vital to the career of a law student.

BEL MicroMasters Programs

Scope: BEL and UQx are developing two online MicroMasters programs on edX: UQx Leadership MicroMasters and UQx Innovation & Entrepreneurship MicroMasters. These can be completed entirely online and students can gain credit towards the BEL Masters programs at UQ.

Benefit: The programs will provide an enrolment pathway to studying a Masters in BEL at UQ. These programs will further develop and demonstrate UQ’s capabilities in eLearning design and production.
