Subject outline

This subject constitutes one half of the thesis component of the Legal Studies Honours Program. Working under the supervision of a staff member, students are required to design, research and produce a 12,000-15,000 word thesis on an approved topic. The thesis is usually completed over two semesters through enrolment in this subject and also LST4THB. A final result will not be determined until both of these subjects have been completed. LST4THA and LST4THB are available to students who are enrolled in the Honours program on either a full-time or part time basis.
