Collins, Pauline and Corbett-Jarvis, Nichola and Galloway, Kate and Schillmoller, Anne and Shircore, Mandy and Thiriet, Dominique and Bradshaw, Rachel (2014) Renewal of the LLB transition curriculum for the new quality regime. In: The First-Year Law Experience: A New Beginning. Halstead Press, Ultimo, N.S.W., pp. 130-145. ISBN 9781925043105


In 2004 the first year of the James Cook University (JCU) LLB course was completely redesigned in accordance with contemporary thinking about the transition year.1 The focus of the redesign was to introduce the study of law within an explicitly designed, holistic program. The designers were cognisant of the need to move away from solely content-based subjects towards an integrated program within which students might learn both content and skills within a supportive environment.2 On further reflection, it is probably fair to say that the program represents an example of a second generation first-year experience.
