Two quizzes of 30 mins each. The quizzes comprise multiple-choice questions that are on the content of the compulsory material covered up to the point of the quiz. Both quizzes are equally weighted.
Hypothetical problem assignment
The assignment involves a hypothetical problem question that tests students on a range of topics covered in this unit. It is designed to mimic the type of cases that international trade lawyers face in practice. More information about the assignment will be provided closer to the date.
The take-home exam can include a range of short answer theoretical and problem questions, covering any topic from the entire semester. The take-home exam is released on the exam date at 9 am and is due by 12 pm on the same day. Late submissions will not be accepted. More information about the take-home exam will be provided closer to the date.
The convenor cannot provide extensions for assessments. Any extension request must be made as an Application for a Special Consideration via ask.mq.edu.au and should be accompanied by supporting documentation. Students should refer to the Special Consideration Policy for complete details of the policy and a description of the supporting documentation required. Students with pre-existing health conditions need to register with Student Wellbeing in order to receive reasonable assessment adjustments.
Unless a Special Consideration request has been submitted and approved,
(a) a penalty for lateness will apply – 10 marks out of 100 credit will be deducted per day for assignments submitted after the due date – and
(b) no assignment will be accepted seven days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline.
No late submissions will be accepted for timed assessments – i.e. quizzes and take-home exams.
Word limits will be strictly applied and work above the word limit will not be marked.
All assessments in the unit are to be submitted electronically. Plagiarism detection software is used in this unit.
Detailed marking rubrics will be made available on the iLearn unit page. All Fail papers are double marked.
