Individual Assignment: This is an individual assignment – students are not to copy each other’s work. Rather, their essay is to be a reflection of their original thoughts, analysis and research.
Lodgement: you must lodge assignments in hard copy to your lecturer during class on the due date with an assignment cover sheet that has been time and date recorded. You must ALSO lodge your assignment electronically via the LearnJCU website as a backup copy (and to check for plagiarism). Please ensure you retain a photocopy of the assignment. Your electronic copy of the assignment must also be submitted before the due time on the due day. Note the link on the web site to the University’s policy on submitting assignments electronically.
To submit your electronic copy of the assignment, follow these instructions:
For more information go to http://learnjcu.jcu.ed and click on LearnJCU Toolbox under the Support tab.
Penalty for late submission: the penalty for late submission of assignments without an extension having been granted is the loss of 5% of the total marks available (for the piece of assessment) per day vanishing down to a mark of zero after 20 days.
In fairness to all students, extensions of time will only be granted in exceptional circumstances and where there is cogent evidence supporting the need for extension. If an extension is applied for close to the due date, normally the
assumption of the lecturer will be that the student has had up to five weeks to work on the task and has done so consistently. The co-ordinator may require the student to produce their work completed to the time of the request for an extension.
If your circumstances warrant the need for an extension, or you would like to request an informal review of your assessment, please refer to the Subject Outline for further details. The “Review of Assessment” and “Request for Extension” forms are available in hard copy from the Law School office or from the Law School Please note that all enquiries and concerns relating to assessment review and teaching and learning issues should, in the first instance, be addressed to the Lecturer/Subject Coordinator. The Head of School will not enter into discussion without evidence that the Lecturer/Subject Coordinator has been formally consulted.
Word Limit: Assignment – 1500-2000 words. Note that your emphasis should not be on length but rather on clarity and precision of thought and expression. You must indicate the length of the assignment on your paper. Word count not recorded – Students will be penalized 2 marks for failing to record the correct word count on the cover sheet or assignment. Word count exceeded – Students will be penalized 1 mark for each 100 words (or part thereof after the first 100 words) above the 1,500-2000 word limit.
Style Guide: include footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography. These are not included in calculating the paper’s word length (unless the footnote is used for extremely long passages of text that may run the risk of circumventing the word limit). Referencing for all Law assignments must be based on the following – Australian Guide to Legal Citation (latest edition) University of Melbourne.
Marking Schedule: a marking sheet is attached. Marks will be primarily awarded for content, analysis and reasoning (based on sound research) but expression, grammar and spelling, presentation and form will also be taken into account (especially where such detracts from the strength of the argument/analysis). Regard shall be had to the following criteria:
Structure: While there is always a place for creativity in answering the questions set, somewhere towards the early part of the answer, there should be an outline/summary/statement of your argument/answer to the question in a nutshell.
