“So, parliament on the orthodox understanding can legislate to reverse any judicial interpretation of its legislation that it doesn’t like or it can, you know, completely replace common law rules with statutory rules. Parliament could do that, and we’ve got plenty of examples of that actually happening.”

Student Experience

I’ve built some really great friendships out of LawPod and also strong relationships with staff members as well, and it really is the perfect opportunity to feel more connected with the School of Law.

One of the reasons I joined LawPod was to strengthen my presentation skills. I thought if I go and do this, I’ll put myself out there. I’ll be interviewing people over a microphone. You really don’t get the opportunity to do that every day.
