This program is designed for lawyers working in (or aspiring to work in) criminal practice as a prosecutor or defence lawyer. It attracts practitioners from across Australia, New Zealand and PNG. You will gain practical experience in a supported environment, applying your legal knowledge to case scenarios. You will also develop your written and oral critical analysis skills. The program consists of six subjects, four of which satisfy the related Graduate Certificate in Criminal Practice program. These subjects cover: the fundamentals of criminal practice, with a focus on bail and sentencing; examination of applied criminal law areas, such as character, incompetency of counsel, separate and judge alone trials, and mental health issues in criminal practice; complex evidentiary issues, such as identification, tendency and compellability; and the use of experts.
