7 Comments on Principles of Business Law (BLAW10001)
Good easy breadth for those who are interested in law. The subject is compulsory for those studying accounting, and some of the content is specifically included to fulfill the requirements of accounting accreditation. The exam is worth 80%, which is obviously a lot if you don't like exams, but its multiple choice and you get to take a cheat sheet, so its not a bad one.
Good experience with this subject as it is multiple choice and had learnt a lot about the business legislation in Australia within the scope of this subject. The cheat sheet is an important element for this course. As time is limited during the finals, make sure to prepare a cheat sheet which enables you to search for facts easily. Sorting your notes well could potentially lead you to finding facts fast. Time management skills is important as there is a limited time frame during the finals.
Good class with engaging lecturers, however, the lectures are not recorded which can be frustrating if you miss one. The exam was relatively easy (as you can bring in a cheat sheet) and only an hour and a half. I found that the readings were more helpful than the lectures as the test/exam content was taken directly out of the readings.
Do not underestimate the difficult of this subject. So many people say BLAW was their easiest subject and while it may seem straightforward due to the multiple choice exam, it requires a LOT more work and study than you may think. Reading all the readings is a must to score well on quizzes and the exam, and ensure you don't slack off this subject just because there aren't any tutorials.
