Year 12 Legal Studies students recently took part in a HSC essay writing workshop led by Mr Christian DeVillar, a highly experienced HSC Legal Studies examination marker. Christian shared valuable insights into the HSC marking process including what markers look for in a response and how to write a top response. Students refined their skills in legal essay writing techniques, constructing legal arguments, using court cases and legislation, and making effective legal judgements. Christian shared detailed knowledge of criminal cases as well as his own personal stories working with young offenders in juvenile detention. The class was kept both informed and amused throughout the workshop, gaining much from this valuable experience.
