Consultation Times

Generally, staff are available by appointment. In the first seminar, seminar leaders will notify their students if they have specific appointment times and these times will be published on vUWS.

Expectations of Student Conduct

1. This Unit emphasises the responsibility of each student for his/her own learning. Students are expected to prepare by doing the prescribed reading before each seminar. Students should timetable 6 -7 hours per week in which to complete the readings, work on seminar exercises and maintain study notes.

2. Each teacher has his/her individual teaching style, but generally the classes are conducted as interactive seminars which include questions and discussion. Students are encouraged to contribute to class discussion and ask questions to improve their understanding.

3. Students are expected to respect the contribution of other students. Contribution should be courteous, polite and sensitive to different points of view.

4. The Torts Law vUWS homepage is an important source of information. Students are expected to check vUWS each week to ensure they keep up to date.
