Minimum C result for semester one, Year 10 Humanities
Legal Studies focuses on the interaction between society and the law. Students study the legal system and how it aims to protect the rights of individuals, while balancing these with obligations and responsibilities.
Knowledge of the law enables students to have confidence in approaching and accessing the legal system, and provides them with an appreciation of the influences that shape our laws.
