Write an essay of 2,000 words in length to answer one of a choice (of at least 2 questions) about a theme, issue, policy or principle of employment and industrial law in a structured and analytical manner. Students are also required to write a short 500 word summary of the searches and other activities they conducted in order to collect material for the writing of their essay.
This 500 word search summary (10 marks) may include information on: references to journals and books in the subject outline (and class materials and discussion) which informed an initial research inquiry and lead to other inquiries; the UTS library and other databases which you used to find information; what search terms/Boolean inquiries you used to search within databases; how many hits you discovered under specific searches made; brief text on which searches produced the best information for the particular topic; any other information which illuminates the processes you went through in your research of the essay topic. Tables and dot points may be used in this 500 word research summary.
A bibliography and adequate referencing system must be provided. Specifically, students can use either the Harvard style footnoting system or the Australian Guide to Legal Citation system of footnoting. (The UTS Law Faculty’s Guide to Written communication recommends the Australian Guide to Legal Citation version 4.)
Before commencing preparation for this task, it is strongly advisable for students to read the UTS Law Faculty’s Guide to Written Communication http://www.uts.edu.au/sites/default/files/law-form-guide-written-communication.pdf . This guide has a section on writing an essay in law.
