Reflective Journal (1500 words)

The reflective journal consists of 4 questions that should be answered on a fortnightly basis:

1.    What are the two sources of law in Australia? Outline the way in which each type of law is made and explain which law prevails in the event of a conflict. Do you think that these are an effective or efficient way of developing new laws?
2.    You are the director of a company that filed for bankruptcy and owed creditors $7 million. Are you liable as a director for that debt? Why/why not? Would your answer change, if, as director you allowed the company to trade while insolvent? In your answer you should consider any relevant cases and materials discussed in lectures and tutorials.
3.    In regards to contracts for carriage,  Australian courts have found that damages can be awarded for distress and disappointment. Do you agree that these kinds of damages should be available to potential plaintiffs? In your answer you should  consider any relevant cases and materials discussed in lectures and tutorials.
4.    The Fair Work Act provides protection for employees under certain circumstances. What makes a dismissal unfair? Do you think that this type of proctection is warranted or necessary? In your answer give examples or refer to cases.

The reflective journal needs to be answered in a report format including an introduction and conclusion (an executive summary is not required for this assessment).
