Students of legal studies learn about the rule of law, justice and the rights and responsibilities of citizens. Legal studies offers students an opportunity to:
- learn about Australian and international law
- the rule of law and how both Australian and international legal systems work
- inquire into and analyse legal issues and communicate in structured arguments.
The NESA legal studies page contains the syllabus and support materials including a sample assessment schedule, specimen paper, HSC exam rubrics, standards packages and past papers.
