Current requirements around social distancing have had an impact on the way many of us deliver services and programs. Early on, it became clear our usual face to face Law Talks and Classroom Law Talks programs would not be able to proceed for the remainder of the 2020 school year. Despite this, we wanted to continue to support legal studies teachers and their students over this challenging time however we could.
To support distance learning, we worked closely with the Victorian Commercial Teachers Association and Victorian Curriculum Assessment Authority to produce a set of study resources for Units 1 & 3 that we believe have value both for distance and classroom learning.
The new resources include a combination of topic outlines, practical tasks, and relevant recent case studies. Teachers can use these resources in their lessons, and students can use them for study and revision in lead up to their SACs and exams. The resources for Units 1 & 3 include:
- Task: Civil Liability
- Task: Sorts of Torts
- Outline: Tort of Negligence
- Task: Tort of Negligence
- Outline: Tort of Defamation
- Task: Tort of Defamation
- Case Study: Defamation in Action – Geoffrey Rush
See the full suite of new resources produced by the Foundation in our Legal Studies resources database.
We are now preparing a series of resources for Units 2 & 4 which should be finalised early in term 3. We will be providing details of these in the near future in our Education Newsletter.
Victoria Law Foundation is committed to making a significant contribution to raising awareness of our law, and to provide evidence and insight to improve justice for all Victorians.
