Learning Expectations and Teaching Strategies/Approach
The University is committed to a high standard of professional conduct in all activities, and holds its
commitment and responsibilities to its students as being of paramount importance. Likewise, it
holds expectations about the responsibilities students have as they pursue their studies within the
special environment the University offers. The University’s Code of Conduct for Teaching and
Learning states:
Students are expected to participate actively and positively in the teaching/learning
environment. They must attend classes when and as required, strive to maintain steady
progress within the subject or unit framework, comply with workload expectations, and
submit required work on time.
These are some of the expectations we have of you as a student enrolled in this unit:
Most of your learning will be done independently and away from the lecture theatres.
Your study need not be a solitary experience and can be more effective if you work with a friend or
informal study group. But when it comes to assessments, you must comply with the University's very
strict rules regarding academic misconduct and plagiarism: see later in this Unit Outline.
While you are expected to take responsibility for your own learning, you are not on your own. If you
need additional information refer to the Teaching and Learning website:
http://www.learningsupport.utas.edu.au/
If you still have areas of difficulty, seek help from teaching staff. One strategy to help is organising
your time to spend sufficient time studying this unit, including activities such as:
Activity
Preparing before class: All students should aim to read the required Chapters of
their Prescribed textbook.
Class contact: listen to lectures and activity in class time. Workbook will be used
as a main teaching tool and students to prepare draft answers in the IRAC
format. Off-campus students to follow the slide presentations.
Consolidate material after class: read the textbook; use MyLawLab resources
(Off-campus Students) to ensure you understand the topics.
Prepare for assessments
Work, Health and Safety (WH&S)
The University is committed to providing a safe and secure teaching and learning environment. You

MyLO Expectations
1.
Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct across all modes of
communication, either with staff or with other students. Penalties may be imposed if the Unit
Coordinator believes that, in any instance or mode of communication, your language or
content is inappropriate or offensive. MyLO is a public forum. Due levels of respect,
professionalism and high ethical standards are expected of students at all times.
2.
Submission of assessment tasks via MyLO presumes that students have read, understood and
abide by the requirements relating to academic conduct, and in particular, those requirements
relating to plagiarism. All work submitted electronically is presumed to be “signed-off” by the
student submitting as their own work. Any breach of this requirement will lead to student
misconduct processes.
3.
MyLO is an Internet service for teaching and learning provided by the University. It is expected
that you check your units in MyLO for updates at least once a day.
Using MyLO for BFA682
IMPORTANT: Before you are provided with access to your unit’s MyLO resources, you must
complete the Student Agreement form. To do this:
1. Access the unit’s MyLO site.
2. Locate the Begin Here folder and click on it to open it. You can find the Begin Here folder by
scrolling down until you see Content Browser OR by clicking on the Content button.
OR
3. Once you have opened the Begin Here folder, click on the Student Agreement file.
OR
4. Read the terms, then check the I agree box. You should now be able to access all available
unit content on MyLO. You only need to do this once in each MyLO unit.

Other important resources on MyLO
MyLO offers a number of facilities the Unit Coordinator may use. These include the following:
“Content” - files will be placed here by the Unit Coordinator including the Unit Outline, Faculty
Guide for Students and Past Examination Papers.
“Learning Hub” - files will be placed in this area by the Unit Coordinator that contains lecture
materials, slides and other materials for lectures, and assignments.
“Discussions” - this area provides facilities for on-line `Discussion' which students can use. Students
can also use the `Mail' area to forward emails to the Unit Coordinator, although using the email
addresses provided inside the cover of this unit outline may provide a quicker response. The
lecturer-in-charge will use the “News” facility on the home page to make announcements to
students.
PDF files - Many of the files made available through MyLO (e.g. in the `Learning Resources' area) will
be in Portable Document Format (PDF). These files can be viewed from within your web browser or
separately by using Adobe Acrobat Reader. This software is already installed on the machines in the
School computer laboratory, but can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe site if you want
a copy for another machine. At time of writing the required URL was: http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Student Feedback via eVALUate
At the conclusion of the unit students will be asked to provide online responses to a number of
matters relating to the learning and teaching within that unit. Please respond honestly to these
questions, as all information received is used to enhance the delivery of future offerings.
Changes to this Unit Based on Previous Student Feedback
The largest alteration to this unit for 2015 is a change in the prescribed textbook. The text listed
earier in this outline has much better online resources availble to you to support your learning.
There are also some changes to the unit’s content to make its workload more manageable.
Details of Teaching Arrangements for Hobart face to face students
If you are near Hobart, you are welcome to attend classes, whatever your mode of enrolment.
Attendance is not essential for off-campus students but provides an excellent opportunity to test
your learning, consolidate problem solving techniques and skills, and interact with staff and other
students. This unit’s 3 hourly weekly workshop will comprise lecture and tutorial-like components
(faciliated by workbook learning). See the unit’s MyLO site for times and venues.
Lectures
A weekly lecture will introduce the various topics that we will cover in the unit. PowerPoint slides for
the weekly lectures will be made available on the unit’s MyLO site. The Unit Schedule, at the end of
this Unit Outline gives you the weekly program of lecture topics.
Do not expect to learn all you need to know by just listening. It is very important that you keep up
with the prescribed reading from your textbook. It is what you do beyond that which really
consolidates your knowledge.
BFA682 Law for Managers
9
Tutorials
This unit has a tutorial component once per week beginning in Week 2. If you are near Hobart, then offcampus students are also welcome to attend tutorials. Details of the exercises undertaken in these
tutorials will be set out in your workbook, to be placed on MyLO.
Students are expected to participate in the tutorial by contributing questions and/or discussion.
Students correct their own work (if necessary) by noting corrections to their original attempt.
The amount of time spent discussing a question will relate to its importance and the degree to which
it is problematic for tutorial participants. Further, broader discussion of issues in relation to business
law is also encouraged, time permitting after tutorials– and during the lecture component.
Finally, tutorials provide an opportunity to raise and discuss any problems you may be experiencing
with the material covered in lectures and / or the readings. Group work is encouraged.
Learning Skills and Language Support (Other support details)
The Student Learning and Academic Development Team in the Student Centre works with all
students, domestic and international, to develop academic skills, literacy and English language skills.
More information can be found on this website http://www.utas.edu.au/student-learning/
Communication, Consultation and Appointments
WHEN YOU HAVE A QUESTION
Other students may have the same question that you have. Please go to the Discussion Forum on
our course’s MyLO site. Check the posts that are already there – someone may have answered your
question already. Otherwise, add your question as a new topic. Students are encouraged to support
each other using this forum – if you can answer someone’s question, please do. We will attempt to
respond to questions within 48 business hours. If your question is related to a personal issue or your
performance in the unit, please contact us by email instead.
IF AN ISSUE WILL IMPACT ON YOUR STUDIES OR SUBMISSION OF AN ASSESSMENT TASK
If you have a personal question related to your studies or your grades, please contact us by email.
A NOTE ABOUT EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE
You are expected to check your UTAS email (WebMail) on a regular basis – at least three times per
week. To access your WebMail account, login using your UTAS username and password
at https://webmail.utas.edu.au/
You are strongly advised not to forward your UTAS emails to an external email service (such as Gmail
or Hotmail). In the past there have been significant issues where this has occurred, resulting in UTAS
being blacklisted by these email providers for a period of up to one month. To keep informed, please
use your UTAS email wherever possible.
*IMPORTANT* Please email me when you have a question or issue of a personal nature, for
example, you have a medical issue that is affecting your studies. For general questions about the
unit, please add them to the Q&A forum on our unit’s MyLO site. This way, other students can
answer, and everyone else can also benefit from the answers.
When you write an email, please include the following information. This helps the teacher determine
who you are and which unit you are talking about.

Submission of Assessment Items
Lodging Assessment Items
Assignments must be submitted electronically through the relevant assignment drop box in MyLO by
8pm on the due date. Save your file name as TutorialNo[X]Qu[Y]FirstNameLastName. Where
appropriate, unit coordinators may also request students submit a paper version of their assignment.
All assignments must have a TSBE Assignment Cover Sheet, which is available as a blank template
from the TSBE website: [http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources]. All
assignments must include your name, student ID number, tutorial date, and your teacher’s name. If
this information is missing the assignment will not be accepted and, therefore, will not be marked.
Please remember that you are responsible for lodging your assessment items on or before the due
date and time. We suggest you keep a copy. Even in ‘perfect’ systems, items sometimes go astray.
Late Assessment and Extension Policy
In this Policy
1.
(a) ‘day’ or ‘days’ includes all calendar days, including weekends and public holidays;
(b) ‘late’ means after the due date and time; and
(c) ‘assessment items’ includes all internal non-examination based forms of assessment
2.
This Policy applies to all students enrolled in TSBE Units at whatever Campus or geographical
location.
3.
Students are expected to submit assessment items on or before the due date and time specified
in the relevant Unit Outline. The onus is on the student to prove the date and time of
submission.
4.
Students who have a medical condition or special circumstances may apply for an extension.
Requests for extensions should, where possible, be made in writing to the Unit Coordinator on
or before the due date. Students will need to provide independent supporting documentation
to substantiate their claims.
5.
Late submission of assessment items will incur a penalty of 10% of the total marks possible for
that piece of assessment for each day the assessment item is late unless an extension had been
granted on or before the relevant due date.
6.
Assessment items submitted more than five (5) days late will not be accepted.
7.
Academic staff do NOT have the discretion to waive a late penalty, subject to clause 4 above.
Academic Referencing and Style Guide
In your written work you will need to support your ideas by referring to literature. It is important
that you understand how to correctly refer to the work of others and maintain academic integrity.
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
The appropriate referencing style for this unit is Harvard style and/or footnotes. For information on
presentation of assignments, including referencing styles: http://utas.libguides.com/referencing
A guide to correct legal referencing for this unit will be placed on MyLO.
BFA682 Law for Managers

Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, etc), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss specifically the
marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they consider their
mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for review within five (5)
days of the meeting.
If you are dissatisfied with the response you may request a formal review of assessment by the
Head of School, if the request is lodged within five (5) days of the informal review being completed.
A Review of Internal Assessment Form must be submitted with the
request: www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assess
ment.pdf.
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources. Your unit coordinator will
then contact you within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your exam script.
If you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after completing the
review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request must be made
within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with Academic Assessment
Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/university-governance/rules). You will
need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment Form, which can be accessed
from www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessmen
t.pdf. Note that if you have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism
Academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, allowing another student to copy work for an
assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct,
see www.utas.edu.au/universitycouncil/legislation
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
• using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
• using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
• copying another student’s work.
It also means using ones’ own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your teacher for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity resources on
the web at http://www.academicintegrity.utas.edu.au/ The intentional copying of someone else’s
work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from a fine or
deduction/cancellation of marks and, in the most serious of cases, to exclusion from a unit, a course,
or the University.
The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to
a plagiarism checking service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism. Assessable
works may also be included in a reference database. It is a condition of this arrangement that the
original author’s permission is required before a work within the database can be viewed.
For further information on this statement and general referencing guidelines,
see www.utas.edu.au/plagiarism/ or follow the link under ‘Policy, Procedures and Feedback’ on the
Current Students homepage.
