    Hi, I’m studying family law and workplace as part of a topic in legal studies in year 12. would this be of relevance for me? Also, do you have any notes for year 12 Legal Studies? Thanks 🙂

      Sorry I don’t have any notes for Legal Studies, as I never did it in highschool. You can have a look at these notes, but they’re probably too detailed for what would be covered by Legal Studies in high school. TT

    Hi, I’m currently doing the HSC and am predominately undertaking science based subjects, however am becoming increasingly interested in doing law after school. I was just wondering if you, or anyone you know, have done gone on to do law without doing Legal Studies or humanities during the HSC, and whether its was extremely difficult without this prior knowledge. Thanks

      Hi Liz, sorry for the late reply – I’m not checking comments that often these days. But yes, I did Law without having done any legal studies/humanities as part of my HSC, and I did not find that it inhibited me in any way. Usually, the Law degree involves a foundational subject anyway, which apparently largely covers everything in Legal Studies from Yr 11 and 12, but in 1 semester. 🙂 All the best.
