In 1993, the faculty of Law and Criminal Justice at Southern Cross University developed an innovative block or intensive teaching for the delivery of the first and second years of its three-year graduate LLB program. This model represented a significant departure from the standard format for the teaching of LLB programs in Australia. In this article, the authors report on evaluation of the effectiveness of the model. The results of the evaluation shed light on its potential strengths and weaknesses and provide insights into what some Australian law students value in teaching and program design.
