About the project

This grant provided funding to produce a series of ten short videos, hosted by Lizzie O’Shea who talks to Australia’s key legal minds, explores important cases and reveals how Australian law works.

Outcome of the project

The ten videos have been designed for senior secondary school legal studies students but also aim to educate a broader audience. The videos explore Australian legal cases, ideas and concepts and align with Victorian legal studies curriculum. The series will be broadcast on ABC TV in 2016.
