All courses undertaken at UNSW Law School contain assessments. They are designed to help students know what they have learned (summative), as well as to give students feedback on what they need to improve (formative).
They are designed to assess student work in terms of both content and academic skills, and begin at a foundational level and become more complex.
An underlying feature of Law School assessment tasks is that students learn problem solving by addressing the problem from a number of different perspectives.
The kinds of assessments students undertake during a law degree include: written advice to clients on hypothetical problems, exams, policy-based essays, presentations, reflective writing, mooting, internships, case notes, and class participation.
The Law School puts great value on developing effective and innovative assessments which help to build students as resilient, effective and just learners able to adapt to the varying demands of both studying and practising law.
