The unit explores the law of public governance (from to the delivery of services and the recognition of entitlements to the regulation of markets) in contemporary Australia. It offers an understanding of government as shaping the private sector (e.g. through consumer protection and investment frameworks) and as accountable under law in provision of services and recognition of entitlements.
This unit may be co-taught with a PG version of the unit.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify and explain governance of the state's delivery of services and recognition of entitlements in terms of legal systems, principles and processes;
2. Analyse the nature of the state in shaping society and the economy through regulation;
