Legal Research Class - 9th September
9th September - 5:00pm - 6:00pm in the Tom Smith Reading Room
The LSS are presenting a legal research class to help students develop industry-relevant research skills. This research class will be lead by Cath Nolan with a panel of industry guest speakers and RMIT alumni.
We'll be showing you how to get started, what the best databases are for your search topic, what skills and questions to ask when you're looking and getting tips from industry professionals on how to establish good search practices.
This research class is for everybody. However, this may be particularly useful for early students who have received feedback from their first assessments, it's also perfect for ongoing students needing a refresher on legal research and anyone looking ensure their search practices are industry-relevant and durable.

Compete for a $200 cash prize against other first-time mooters!
This competition is open to RMIT students who are in their first year of study or have not participated in a moot before. It is aimed at teaching students how to compete in your first foot and is an essential stepping stone for students who wish to compete nationally and internationally and represent RMIT.
The problem will be focused on Criminal Law. This is an excellent opportunity to try out mooting in a supportive, internal RMIT environment where you will be given support and mentoring from experienced mooters. In 2019, there will be two optional, but highly recommended workshops for all competitors to assist you in preparing your written and oral submissions. Registration has now closed.
