1. Course Details

Given the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in NSW, all Term 3 courses will be delivered online until at least Friday 22nd October and all assessment will be online throughout the term. The University remains hopeful that the situation will improve to allow for some on-campus activities later in Term 3 such as lab, practical and studio classes. UNSW will continue to review the situation regularly and keep students updated. For further information on how your study may be affected this term, please see FAQs here. See tab 8. Policies and Support in this course outline for tips on online study and assessment.

Course Aims and Relationship to Other Courses

This course is useful for anyone interested in pursuing a career in business. It will provide you with an understanding of the relationship of the law to business. You will be introduced to the legal method of writing, analysis and research. The knowledge and skills developed in this course provide an essential grounding for successful study of future business law or taxation law courses.

An understanding of business law is essential for attaining a deep and well-rounded understanding of the other disciplines offered by the UNSW Business School. Examples of how it contributes are below:

  • 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 on a legal framework that allows for property rights to be leveraged and transferred, and risk to be allocated among the parties. This course provides students with the knowledge of how transactions are documented.
  • 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.
  • Information Systems - This course provides an overview of intellectual property which is the fundamental legal mechanism for ownership and exploitation of commercial information.
  • Marketing - Marketing must operate within the confines of the tort law, contracts and the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), for which this course provides an overview.
  • Organisation and Management - This course provides an understanding of the legal system under which organisations operate.
  • Risk and Actuarial Studies - This course develops skills in interpreting and applying complex legislation which is an important skill for actuaries.

3. Learning and Teaching Activities

Approach to Learning and Teaching in the Course

This course adopts an approach to teaching and learning that builds both knowledge and skills. There is a significant focus on 'learning through doing'. Through a structured learning process in each of the topics you will be introduced to legal principles and then work in teams to practise applying them to problems based on real life examples.

This approach reflects how the law works. Legal rules are logical but can be complicated. Because each situation is different, applying the law requires careful reasoning (sometimes by analogy), and logical argument. There may be more than one correct answer. This requires you to interpret and apply nuanced concepts, not just memorise and reproduce them. This is what makes studying this subject interesting. The skills you acquire in interpreting written rules and documents, thinking analytically, working collaboratively and ethically, and arguing persuasively will equip you well for business.

Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies

The learning activities for each module are structured into 4 steps. The steps are a combination of things you do in and outside the weekly tutorial class. All are aimed at helping you become confident at applying the law to solving problems that you may encounter in business.

So what are the 4 steps each week?

Step 1 is reading the assigned chapter from the textbook and making notes.

Step 2 is watching the on-line concept videos, pre-recorded lectures and making notes. The introductory video(s) gives you an overview of the weekly topic(s). The lectures are more detailed and provide explanation of the concepts.

In the concept videos you will hear the lecturer narrating a slide presentation that aligns with the textbook. These concept videos guide your reading but are not a substitute for it. Each concept video is approximately 4-5 minutes long and each week there are between 3-7 concept videos to watch. There are also two half hour lectures on the weekly topic. You can download the slides from Moodle and make detailed notes on them combining what the lecturer says in the videos and your notes from the textbook.

If you have questions on the material you can ask them in your tutorial session or the weekly Thursday evening Webinar.

There are the weekly formative quizzes you can use to test your knowledge of the concepts. It does not form part of your assessment grade but is there to give you feedback. It is suggested you complete the quiz before your tutorial for that week.

There is also a separate section on Moodle labelled Legal Skills which demonstrate practical skills that you can use throughout your exercises in the tutorials.

Step 3 each tutorial lasts 2 hours. In these hours, your tutorial group will work together on short questions based on the week's readings. The skills you acquire in the questions will prepare you for answering the assignment exercise and the final exam.

Step 4 is important. This is where you consolidate your learning for the week. You need to:

  1. Summarise the short questions. Remember the subject is cumulative so each week you will be building on what you learnt in the previous one. You should write up your short questions after class each week, because you will need these for your assignment and in preparation for the final exam.
  2. Review your readings from the prescribed text. This will reinforce what you have learnt from the discussion in your tutorial.
  3. Complete the weekly Topic Quiz and weekly Forum Question
  4. Ensure you have clear understanding of the topic. If you have questions on any of the topics you can ask them in the Weekly Thursday 6pm Webinar.
Step 5 is the weekly online Webinar (Thursday evenings at 6pm). Attendance at the Webinar is not compulsory, however it is highly recommended that you attend the Webinar. The Webinar is an interactive 'revision' class where you will be given a demonstration on how to answer legal problem questions (highly relevant for the written assessments and final exam). You also have the opportunity to ask questions during the Webinar on any matters pertaining to the course.

8. Policies and Support

Information about UNSW Business School program learning outcomes, academic integrity, student responsibilities and student support services. For information regarding special consideration and viewing final exam scripts, please go to the key policies and support page.

Program Learning Outcomes

The Business School places knowledge and capabilities at the core of its curriculum via seven Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs). These PLOs are systematically embedded and developed across the duration of all coursework programs in the Business School.

PLOs embody the knowledge, skills and capabilities that are taught, practised and assessed within each Business School program. They articulate what you should know and be able to do upon successful completion of your degree.

Upon graduation, you should have a high level of specialised business knowledge and capacity for responsible business thinking, underpinned by ethical professional practice. You should be able to harness, manage and communicate business information effectively and work collaboratively with others. You should be an experienced problem-solver and critical thinker, with a global perspective, cultural competence and the potential for innovative leadership.

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

PLO 1: Business knowledge

Students will make informed and effective selection and application of knowledge in a discipline or profession, in the contexts of local and global business.

PLO 2: Problem solving

Students will define and address business problems, and propose effective evidence-based solutions, through the application of rigorous analysis and critical thinking.

PLO 3: Business communication

Students will harness, manage and communicate business information effectively using multiple forms of communication across different channels.

PLO 4: Teamwork

Students will interact and collaborate effectively with others to achieve a common business purpose or fulfil a common business project, and reflect critically on the process and the outcomes.

PLO 5: Responsible business practice

Students will develop and be committed to responsible business thinking and approaches, which are underpinned by ethical professional practice and sustainability considerations.

PLO 6: Global and cultural competence

Students will be aware of business systems in the wider world and actively committed to recognise and respect the cultural norms, beliefs and values of others, and will apply this knowledge to interact, communicate and work effectively in diverse environments.

PLO 7: Leadership development

Students will develop the capacity to take initiative, encourage forward thinking and bring about innovation, while effectively influencing others to achieve desired results.

These PLOs relate to undergraduate and postgraduate coursework programs.  Separate PLOs for honours and postgraduate research programs are included under 'Related Documents'.

Business School course outlines provide detailed information for students on how the course learning outcomes, learning activities, and assessment/s contribute to the development of Program Learning Outcomes.

RELATED DOCUMENTS

 

UNSW Graduate Capabilities

The Business School PLOs also incorporate UNSW graduate capabilities, a set of generic abilities and skills that all students are expected to achieve by graduation. These capabilities articulate the University’s institutional values, as well as future employer expectations.

You can use a portfolio as evidence in employment applications as well as a reference for work or further study. For support with selecting your courses contact the UNSW Business School Student Services team.





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 ten to twelve hours per week studying for a course except for Summer Term courses which have a minimum weekly workload of twenty to twenty four 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 Safety

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.
