Academic & Education Support

The Blackstone Education Portfolio has put together resources on many of the academic issues that affect students in the UWA Law School.  Click on the links in the descriptions below to find out more. If you have questions, need help, or are unsure where to go for advice you can contact the Blackstone Education Vice-President Emma Boogaerdt via email.

GETTING HELP

University can be a stressful time for many students, with health issues, financial trouble, family responsibilities, and other challenges facing students. It can be difficult to find out where to go for help, so we have compiled a list of key contacts, both within the University and external, for you to utlise, that can be found here.

MISCONDUCT

Academic misconduct is extremely serious at University and includes where students are found to have broken guidelines relating to an assessment or engaged in activities that challenge the academic integrity of UWA. If you receive a charge of academic misconduct you can click here to find out about the process and who can support you through it.

TEACHING & FEEDBACK

We are committed to making sure that the education you receive at the UWA Law School is of a high quality, and we take feedback from students very seriously. Go to our page here to find out the policy on lecture recordings, unit outlines, the SPOT and SURF surveys, and give feedback on any issues you're currently facing in your law units.

ENROLMENT

Picking units, planning your degree, and coordinating exchange or cross-institutional study can all be a confusing process. As the Juris Doctor is a post-graduate degree there can be strict requirements that have to be adhered to, which you can find more about here.

ASSESSMENTS & APPEALS

Go to our page on assessment here to find out information about the new Assessment Policy and the process for Appeals and Reviews. Please note that you only have five University working days from the official release of results or a University decision to request a review. 

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION

If you have a personal issue that has affected your performance academically it can be taken into consideration for upcoming exams or assessments. You can apply any time before, but only up to three University working days after. Click here to find out more.
