The nature of the seminar courses gives students the ability to deep-dive into topics. The small enrolment numbers on each seminar, generally no more than 24, facilitates in-depth discussion. Students are expected to present an oral version of their research paper to the class during Semester Two.

Attendance at every class is compulsory and students are expected to participate fully throughout.  Students are responsible for working out their timetable to ensure the seminar does not clash with other enrolled courses. However, there is scope to apply for an enrolment concession in certain other courses (not the Honours seminar). 

The Law School tries to ensure that there are a wide range of seminar course topics available each year. However, if none interest you there is the option to defer your invitation. Find more information on deferring your Honours invitation.

Students are allocated to the seminars based on their weighted average and their recorded preferences. Students with a higher weighted average are therefore more likely to get their first choice. Generally, if you do not get your first choice you cannot switch to another given limited spaces. There is still the option to defer or withdraw from the Honours programme, however you are encouraged to discuss your options with a Student Adviser before doing so.

Due date for the final Honours seminar research paper

This is typically the Friday of the final day of lectures. However, please check the Canvas page of the Seminar that you are enrolled in. If the due date is not on the Canvas page, then please get in touch with the Course Director.
