This online unit from RMIT University is a broad introduction to international human rights law, teaching students about its background, administering institutions, and sources, to equip them with knowledge about the legal profession, provide skills in legal research, and bolster their professional practice as human rights lawyers.
While it is international in scope, the unit is geared towards domestic legal practice, applying jurisprudence and international law sources such as the main human rights treaties and UN supervisory bodies to Australian law.
Delivered entirely online by Open Universities Australia, Human Rights Law in Australia gives students an opportunity to analyse a range of human rights law sources including the Constitution, state human rights legislation, the common law, and international human rights norms. Students will apply their knowledge in a range of contexts, including anti-terror laws, Indigenous Australians, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, and corporations.
