Course Aims and Relationship to Other Courses

This course is important for anyone interested in pursuing a career in business. It will provide students with an understanding of the relationship of the law to business. Particular emphasis will be given to understanding legal reasoning and argument. This course will also introduce students to the legal method of writing, analysis and research. In addition, the knowledge and skills developed in this course will be essential for successful study of other business law or taxation courses for those students who are interested in undertaking other courses offered by the School of Taxation and Business Law.

The study of business law and taxation is essential for attaining a deep and well-rounded understanding of the other disciplines offered by the UNSW Business School.

  • Accounting - This course is recognised by CPA and CAANZ as satisfying some of their educational requirements for admission to their associations.
  • Banking and Finance - All financial transactions are based upon a legal framework that allows for property rights to be leveraged and transferred. This course provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to understand how various financial transactions are used.
  • Marketing - Modern marketing practices must operate within the confines of the tort law, contracts and the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, for which this course provides an overview.
  • Information Systems - This course provides an overview of intellectual property which is the fundamental legal mechanism for ownership and exploitation of commercial information.
  • Organisation and Management - This course provides an understanding of the legal system under which organisations operate.
  • Economics - This course provides students with an overview of the operation of the legal system which will enhance your understanding of the legal framework within which the economy and government policies operate.

Tutors will provide students with their contact details in the first tutorial class.

Communication with staff

In the first instance, students should consult with their own allocated tutor.

Students may also refer questions to the Lecturer-in-Charge. Students will also be able to consult with staff during their official face-to-face consultation hours in Weeks 3, 5, 6, & 13 (see Tutorial Program for details) or can make contact with their tutor by email to make an appointment for an alternative time.

When you contact staff by email please:

Use your university email address.

Specify the course TABL1710 as your lecturer may be teaching more than one course.

Sign off by using your name and your zid.

Students should note however, that email is not an appropriate medium for learning and emails to staff should be limited to short questions that can be answered briefly, and as far as possible with a yes/no answer. Do not expect staff to reply to emails that request extensive or substantive answers. Such questions should be directed to staff during tutorials or consultation hours.

Do not expect a response to a question that can be answered by reading this course outline, the tutorial guide or other information posted on Moodle.

3. Learning and Teaching Activities

Approach to Learning and Teaching in the Course

This course is conducted with the aim of promoting student-centred learning.

This aim will be achieved by requiring students to engage with the topics presented in the course through set weekly readings and, as required, independent research.

While the assessment in this course is designed to test students’ knowledge of the key principles that establish the framework of common commercial transactions, the primary focus of the assessment regime is to test how well students can apply legal principles and practices in a realistic commercial context.

Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies

Lectures are an essential part of learning. Lectures do not summarise or replace the required reading in the textbook.

Students should not merely rely on their lecture notes. The readings from the textbook place the lecture material in its proper context and provide the full understanding of the topic that is needed for successful completion of the course.

The purpose of the lecture is to highlight key aspects of the course, not to fully explain the week’s topic. Students are expected to read and study the prescribed text and reading material provided and to engage with sources outside of their prescribed text, such as information on the internet. Students should not assume that material not covered in the lectures is either unimportant or not subject to assessment. The assessment will cover all material dealt with in the course including the lectures, tutorial work and the reading material.

Tutorials commence in Week 2 and continue to Week 13.

You should enrol in a tutorial through myUNSW. Students note: myUNSW does not allow for allocated class times to clash. Therefore, you will not be allowed to change your tutorial time if you cite clashing times as your reason. If for some reason you are unable to attend your assigned tutorial, or you are not enrolled in a tutorial, you should contact the Lecturer-in-Charge. Tutorial allocations will not be changed after the end of Week 3.

Students must attend their allocated tutorial and no other. In exceptional circumstances (illness, compassionate grounds) a student may be permitted to attend a make-up tutorial. Students attending other tutorials without permission will not be marked for attendance at that tutorial. This makes it essential that you ensure that you are allocated to a tutorial. This semester 25th April, Anzac Day public holiday, falls on a Wednesday week 8. Students allocated Wednesday tutorials will be advised in tutorials of the attendance arrangements for that week.

The tutorial assessment will be based upon the official myUNSW allocated tutorial class lists.

Topics and problems for each week are set out in the Tutorial Guide.

As a general rule, tutorials will deal with issues lectured on in the previous week. The purpose of the questions in the tutorial program is to help you to interpret and apply the previous week’s lecture material. The tutorial problems and discussion questions also allow you to practise for the final exam, which will consist of similar questions. Note: there will be no suggested answers given out to the tutorial questions. Do not ask for answers to the tutorial questions to be given out or posted on Moodle. The purpose of the questions is to allow you to apply the course material and gauge your own level of competence. Simply giving you the suggested answers will defeat this purpose.

Each topic/problem must be prepared for discussion in class by each student using the prescribed readings and the lecture notes for the relevant topic. It is your responsibility to prepare for tutorials so that you are able to make a valuable contribution to class activities. The tutorials are not designed as a repeat lecture. The tutorials are provided to give students the opportunity to work through any problems/issues that may be outstanding after doing the required reading and attending the lecture.

Program Learning Goals and Outcomes

The Business School Program Learning Goals reflect what we want all students to BE or HAVE by the time they successfully complete their degree, regardless of their individual majors or specialisations. For example, we want all our graduates to HAVE a high level of business knowledge and a sound awareness of ethical, social, cultural and environmental implications of business. As well, we want all our graduates to BE effective problem-solvers, communicators and team participants.

You can demonstrate your achievement of these goals by the specific outcomes you achieve by the end of your degree (i.e. Program Learning Outcomes—henceforth PLOs). These PLOs articulate what you need to know and be able to do as a result of engaging in learning. They embody the knowledge, skills and capabilities that are identified, mapped, taught, practised and assessed within each Business School program.

All UNSW programs and courses are designed to assess the attainment of program and/or course level learning outcomes, as outlined in the UNSW Assessment Design Procedure. It is therefore important that you become familiar with the Business School PLOs, as they constitute the framework which informs and shapes the course components and assessments of the courses within your program of study.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism

Academic Integrity is honest and responsible scholarship. This form of ethical scholarship is highly valued at UNSW. Terms like Academic Integrity, misconduct, referencing, conventions, plagiarism, academic practices, citations and evidence based learning are all considered basic concepts that successful university students understand. Learning how to communicate original ideas, refer sources, work independently, and report results accurately and honestly are skills that you will be able to carry beyond your studies.

The definition of academic misconduct is broad. It covers practices such as cheating, copying and using another person’s work without appropriate acknowledgement. Incidents of academic misconduct may have serious consequences for students.

Plagiarism

UNSW regards plagiarism as a form of academic misconduct. UNSW has very strict rules regarding plagiarism. Plagiarism at UNSW is using the words or ideas of others and passing them off as your own. All Schools in the Business School have a Student Ethics Officer who will investigate incidents of plagiarism and may result in a student’s name being placed on the Plagiarism and Student Misconduct Registers.

Below are examples of plagiarism including self-plagiarism:

Copying: Using the same or very similar words to the original text or idea without acknowledging the source or using quotation marks. This includes copying materials, ideas or concepts from a book, article, report or other written document, presentation, composition, artwork, design, drawing, circuitry, computer program or software, website, internet, other electronic resource, or another person's assignment, without appropriate acknowledgement of authorship.

Inappropriate Paraphrasing: Changing a few words and phrases while mostly retaining the original structure and/or progression of ideas of the original, and information without acknowledgement. This also applies in presentations where someone paraphrases another’s ideas or words without credit and to piecing together quotes and paraphrases into a new whole, without appropriate referencing.

Collusion: Presenting work as independent work when it has been produced in whole or part in collusion with other people. Collusion includes:

  • Students providing their work to another student before the due date, or for the purpose of them plagiarising at any time
  • Paying another person to perform an academic task and passing it off as your own
  • Stealing or acquiring another person’s academic work and copying it
  • Offering to complete another person’s work or seeking payment for completing academic work

Collusion should not be confused with academic collaboration (i.e., shared contribution towards a group task).

Inappropriate Citation: Citing sources which have not been read, without acknowledging the 'secondary' source from which knowledge of them has been obtained.

Self-Plagiarism: ‘Self-plagiarism’ occurs where an author republishes their own previously written work and presents it as new findings without referencing the earlier work, either in its entirety or partially. Self-plagiarism is also referred to as 'recycling', 'duplication', or 'multiple submissions of research findings' without disclosure. In the student context, self-plagiarism includes re-using parts of, or all of, a body of work that has already been submitted for assessment without proper citation.

To see if you understand plagiarism, do this short quiz: https://student.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism-quiz

Cheating

The University also regards cheating as a form of academic misconduct. Cheating is knowingly submitting the work of others as their own and includes contract cheating (work produced by an external agent or third party that is submitted under the pretences of being a student’s original piece of work). Cheating is not acceptable at UNSW.

If you need to revise or clarify any terms associated with academic integrity you should explore the 'Working with Academic Integrity' self-paced lessons available at: https://student.unsw.edu.au/aim.

For UNSW policies, penalties, and information to help you avoid plagiarism see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism as well as the guidelines in the online ELISE tutorials for all new UNSW students: http://subjectguides.library.unsw.edu.au/elise. For information on student conduct see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/conduct.

For information on how to acknowledge your sources and reference correctly, see: https://student.unsw.edu.au/referencing. If you are unsure what referencing style to use in this course, you should ask the lecturer in charge.

Student Responsibilities and Conduct

Students are expected to be familiar with and adhere to university policies in relation to class attendance and general conduct and behaviour, including maintaining a safe, respectful environment; and to understand their obligations in relation to workload, assessment and keeping informed.

Information and policies on these topics can be found on the 'Managing your Program' website

Workload

It is expected that you will spend at least nine to ten hours per week studying for a course except for Summer Term courses which have a minimum weekly workload of eighteen to twenty hours. This time should be made up of reading, research, working on exercises and problems, online activities and attending classes. In periods where you need to complete assignments or prepare for examinations, the workload may be greater. Over-commitment has been a cause of failure for many students. You should take the required workload into account when planning how to balance study with employment and other activities.

We strongly encourage you to connect with your Moodle course websites in the first week of semester. Local and international research indicates that students who engage early and often with their course website are more likely to pass their course.

View more information on expected workload

Attendance

Your regular and punctual attendance at lectures and seminars or in online learning activities is expected in this course. The Business School reserves the right to refuse final assessment to those students who attend less than 80% of scheduled classes where attendance and participation is required as part of the learning process (e.g., tutorials, flipped classroom sessions, seminars, labs, etc.).

View more information on attendance

General Conduct and Behaviour

You are expected to conduct yourself with consideration and respect for the needs of your fellow students and teaching staff. Conduct which unduly disrupts or interferes with a class, such as ringing or talking on mobile phones, is not acceptable and students may be asked to leave the class.

View more information on student conduct

Health and Safety

UNSW Policy requires each person to work safely and responsibly, in order to avoid personal injury and to protect the safety of others.

View more information on Health and Saftey

Keeping Informed

You should take note of all announcements made in lectures, tutorials or on the course web site. From time to time, the University will send important announcements to your university e-mail address without providing you with a paper copy. You will be deemed to have received this information. It is also your responsibility to keep the University informed of all changes to your contact details.

Special Consideration

You must submit all assignments and attend all examinations scheduled for your course. You can apply for special consideration when illness or other circumstances beyond your control, interfere with your performance in a specific assessment task or tasks. Special Consideration is primarily intended to provide you with an extra opportunity to demonstrate the level of performance of which you are capable.

General information on special consideration for undergraduate and postgraduate courses can be found in the Assessment Implementation Procedure and the Current Students page.

Please note the following:

  1. Applications will not be accepted by teaching staff. The lecturer-in-charge will be automatically notified when you lodge an online application for special consideration
  2. Decisions and recommendations are only made by lecturers-in-charge (or by the Faculty Panel in the case of final exam special considerations), not by tutors
  3. Applying for special consideration does not automatically mean that you will be granted a supplementary exam or other concession
  4. Special consideration requests do not allow lecturers-in-charge to award students additional marks

Business School Protocol on requests for Special Consideration

The lecturer-in-charge will need to be satisfied on each of the following before supporting a request for special consideration:

  1. Does the medical certificate contain all relevant information? For a medical certificate to be accepted, the degree of illness and its impact on the student must be stated by the medical practitioner (severe, moderate, mild). A certificate without this will not be valid. Students should also note that only medical certificates issued after physically visiting a registered medical practitioner will be accepted. Medical certificates submitted for Special Consideration should always be requested from a registered medical practitioner that you have seen at a medical practice. Certificates obtained online or via social media may be fraudulent and if relied upon could result in a breach of the UNSW Student Code.
  2. Has the student performed satisfactorily in the other assessment items? To understand what Satisfactory Performance means in this course, please refer to the 'Formal Requirements' section in Part A of your Course Outline

Special Consideration and the Final Exam in undergraduate and postgraduate courses

Applications for special consideration in relation to the final exam are considered by a Business School Faculty panel to which lecturers-in-charge provide their recommendations for each request. If the Faculty panel grants a special consideration request, this will entitle the student to sit a supplementary examination. No other form of consideration will be granted. The following procedures will apply:

  1. Supplementary exams will be scheduled centrally and will be held approximately two weeks after the formal examination period.

    Supplementary exams for Semester 1, 2018 will be held during the period 14 - 21 July, 2018. Students wishing to sit a supplementary exam will need to be available during this period.

    The date for all Business School supplementary exams for Summer Term 2017/2018 is Wednesday, 21 February, 2018. If a student lodges a special consideration for the final exam, they are stating they will be available on this date. Supplementary exams will not be held at any other time.

  2. Where a student is granted a supplementary examination as a result of a request for special consideration, the student’s original exam (if completed) will be ignored and only the mark achieved in the supplementary examination will count towards the final grade. Absence from a supplementary exam without prior notification does not entitle the student to have the original exam paper marked, and may result in a zero mark for the final exam.

The Supplementary Exam Protocol for Business School students is available at: http://www.business.unsw.edu.au/suppexamprotocol

For special consideration for assessments other than the final exam refer to the ‘Assessment Section’ in your course outline.

Protocol for Viewing Final Exam Scripts

The UNSW Business School has set a protocol under which students may view their final exam script. Please check the protocol here.

Given individual schools within the Faculty may set up a local process for viewing final exam scripts, it is important that you check with your School whether they have any additional information on this process. Please note that this information might also be included in your course outline.
