A transition program in first year law : adopting the First Year Curriculum Principles
Stickley, Amanda P. (2011) A transition program in first year law : adopting the First Year Curriculum Principles. In First Year Experience in Higher Education : Design for Student Success, 28 June - 1 July 2011, Fremantle, WA.
The First Year Curriculum Principles espouse a student-focused consistent and explicit curriculum, acknowledging diversity and the need to scaffold skills and learning. Commencing law students are no different to other first year students in that they must deal with changes in teaching and learning approaches and expectations. As well as the generic issues of transition, law students must grapple with learning the skills which are necessary for the study of law from the very start of their degree. A transition program at the commencement of a law degree as part of a planned first year curriculum provides an opportunity to introduce students to the study of law, the requisite skills as well as assist with transition to tertiary education.
