Legal literacy

National Security College | Professional course

Summary

Australia’s national security agencies operate within a complex set of laws. It is essential that those who work in the sector can navigate through the complexity.

This two-day program, co-designed with the ANU College of Law, is primarily aimed at non-lawyers. It provides an introduction to reading and using relevant legislation, how the Constitution affects national security laws, the role of international law and the ways our national security laws are made, amended and overseen.

The course is particularly useful for those working in legal policy, governance and oversight roles as well as operational staff who need to understand the framework that underpins legal authorities such as warrants and authorisations.

No security clearance required.
