The CPAP Legal Studies Workshop is unlike student lectures offered by CPAP and other organisations. The workshop is designed to be interactive, with the ability for students to quiz our expert facilitator, Megan Blake, along with the provision of exercises to both stimulate students and improve their ability to correctly interpret questions, avoid the mistakes of past students and write efficient and concise responses that will impress the assessors.  Megan Blake has developed expertise in VCE Legal Studies identifying those issues that are relevant and important to students preparing for their examination.  Common problems areas will be clarified, relevant past exam questions will be explored, and possible questions for the 2018 examination will be analysed. Students will be shown how to simplify or ‘unpack’ difficult questions, minimising the risk of ‘straying’ or ‘rambling’ in the examination, and will be provided with strategies to help deliver concise and accurate responses that impress the assessors. If you are a student aiming for a 40+, but require that extra ‘something’, then this workshop could be the key! All participants will be provided with morning tea and refreshments.

Megan Blake (LLB.,B.A.(Melb) Dip.Ed.(Monash)) completed a law degree at the University of Melbourne and worked for a number of years with private law firms and large corporations.  Since joining the teaching profession, Megan has been a teacher of VCE legal studies and has been actively involved in Legal Studies education.  She had positions of responsibility with the VCAA, most recently as a member of the panel designing the new Legal Studies ‘study design,’ and she has had a number of years experience as a VCE Legal Studies examination assessor.    Megan also has several years experience presenting student lectures and workshops and is a prolific writer of assessment materials, for both CPAP and other organisations.  She is also the author of the CPAP Study Guide to VCE Legal Studies, the CPAP Legal Studies Quarterly Updates as well as web-based materials published by Jacaranda.
