Location for submission: Unless otherwise advised, the assignment must be submitted, with a Statement of Authorship attached, in the Business Law essay submission box. Maximum word limit: 1,500 words, including words in footnotes. Details required: Ensure that you place your name and student number, as well as your tutor’s name and your tutorial time, on the cover sheet attached to the front of your answer. Total value: this assignment is worth 20 marks (being 20% of the total result in the unit). Citation: Students should follow the Australian Guide to Legal Citation, 3rd edition. The Guide is available in hard copy in the University library. ALL sources formally relied upon must be accompanied by University mandated citation rules. Penalties at the marker’s discretion will apply to students who do not pay attention to the correct citation of cases, statutes and secondary sources. Footnote your responses on a page by page basis. Footnotes must be consistent in style. Do not include a bibliography. Note that citations form part of the word length. Criteria for assessment: Marks are awarded for the accuracy and quality of the response. See the Unit Learning Guide for the criteria by which the assignment will be marked. Presentation will be taken into account when your assignment is marked. Assignments must be typed, double spaced with wide margins and size 12 font. Requests for Extension: Extensions of time will not normally be granted. In particular, extensions will not be granted merely on the ground of pressure of work. In a case of genuine hardship (for example, where illness is involved), an extension may be granted. In this event, there may be delays in finalising the student's result. To apply for an extension, obtain an Application for Extension form (refer to Unit Learning Guide) and follow the procedure set out on it. If approved by your lecturer, attach the approved Application for Extension form to your work before submission. Applications for extensions must be completed by you and submitted to your lecturer for approval prior to the submission date. Applications made after the date the assignment is due will not be considered. An application that is made on the grounds of illness must be supported by a medical certificate. 2 Late submission of your work without a prior extension having been granted will be penalised according to Law School’s policy on late submission. No marks will be given for an assignment handed in after any responses to the topic in question have been marked and returned to any member of the class. Plagiarism: University policies on plagiarism will apply to the assignment. Refer to the Business Law Unit Learning Guide. Length: as noted above, your assignment must not exceed 1,500 words, including words in footnotes and this limit will be strictly enforced. Excessive length will be penalised. Do not waste words on lengthy introductions and conclusions. Try to be precise and concise in dealing with the issues raised by the question. The total number of words in your assignment should also be noted on the front of your answer. Students who misrepresent the word count will be penalised. A copy for your records: It is important that you keep a copy of your work for your records. Submit the original copy of the assignment. The lecturer can ask you to produce the copy of your assignment, in case your assignment got lost or damaged.
