Bond Law School offering free course for Canadian JD students
OzTREKK has just received an update about an exciting development with the Bond University Juris Doctor program: They are now offering a short course in Canadian Professional Responsibility to their law students at no additional cost!
The course will be delivered by a Bond Canadian academic, Semester Assistant Professor Mariette Brennan, an alumna from the University of Ottawa (JD) and Osgoode Hall Law School (PhD). The course will involve online seminars, reading lists and sample fact scenarios that will introduce students to issues of lawyers’ ethics and professional responsibility, and specifically ethical reasoning in legal practice in the Canadian context. Students will cover selected topics including the Federation of Canadian Law Societies, Federation Model Code of Professional, case law arising from this material and to the application of the law of fiduciary obligations to lawyer-client relationships.
The course does not include assigned assessment, but is designed aid students in understanding Canadian Professional Responsibility and assist with preparations for the NCA exams.
Bond Law School also offers four Canadian Law subjects in Foundations of Canadian Law, Canadian Criminal Law, Canadian Constitutional Law and Canadian Administrative Law. These courses can assist Canadian graduates in preparation for their NCA examinations in these areas.
The faculty will also be packaging their Canadian subjects as a “Graduate Certificate in Canadian Law” able to be taken by Canadian students, whether from Bond or elsewhere, to assist them in preparing for the NCA exams.
Furthermore, if you plan to apply for the September 2015 intake, Bond University is accepting applications for their Bond University International Student Scholarship!
