Dr Andrew Burke is opening up the LAWS8013 Civil and Criminal Procedure tutorial to provide you with an opportunity to observe teaching – live and in-person, as part of our ‘Open for Observation’ program in Session 1. Register below to observe this class.

The teacher: Dr Andrew Burke is a Lecturer, Director Juris Doctor and Acting Director of Education in the Macquarie Law School, Faculty of Arts.

The class: LAWS8013 Civil and Criminal Procedure – 1 hour tutorial, On campus. These tutorials in March all involve client interview exercises. Client interview is a key professional skill in criminal procedure, and this is part of the Law School’s shift towards embedding professional skills and authentic assessment. Three client interviews will be done in each hour, with students working in pairs to interview the client (played by Andrew). Each interview is followed by a broader class discussion on issues arising. This interview is predominant factor in determining each student’s class participation mark (10% of unit grade).

Before the class: Download the observation Reflection Sheet and read the LAWS8013 Unit Guide.

During the class: Consider the prompts on this guided Reflection Sheet as you observe the class. Andrew has indicated that this client interview exercise is a trial, and will look to build upon it for future offerings, so any feedback would be welcome.

After the class: If you would like to arrange an informal chat with Andrew after the class as an opportunity to ask any questions about the class and to reflect on your experience, please email Andrew directly andrew.burke@mq.edu.au.
