Description

Class Experience

Learners will find out how to protect their own intellectual property interests in an increasingly competitive world, as well as how to protect themselves from accidentally infringing upon the intellectual property of others so as to avoid unnecessary legal entanglements.
Pamela is a lawyer in Australia, and she has homeschooled her own children for the past 8 years and will continue to do so for at least another 17 years (her youngest child is 1y as of 2022). 

I have degrees, post-graduate, and professional qualifications in the following:

- Law - Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, Admission as a Lawyer;

- TESOL - I have completed 8 out of 8 units towards the 150-hour qualification. When I receive my official professional certificate from Arizona State University I will update this here;

- Criminology;
- I.T. Security;
- Applied Linguistics;
- Investigative Services;
- Security, Terrorism and Counterterrorism.

I have also completed the following short courses which are relevant to the classes I teach here:

- How Forensic Science should speak to the Court;
- Introduction to Key Constitutional Concepts and Supreme Court Cases (USA);
- An Introduction to American Law (USA);
- English Common Law: Structure and Principles (UK);
- Economic Growth and Distributive Justice;

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
OPTIONAL: 
When submitting your homework assignment (of finding and sharing a case) learners are encouraged to also either write a paragraph summarising their case, or a video of no more than 1 minute speaking about the case and summarising it. This is to ensure that learners who prefer to speak can do this, and learners who prefer to write can do that instead.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
- I may use YouTube to demonstrate issues with copyrighted material, and when I do, it will be screen-shared via Zoom, so that learners do not need to access it outside of Outschool.
- When applicable, I will screen share slides from Google Slides.

- Just a few bars from each of the following 8 songs will be played as audio files only in order to demonstrate the cases and copyright law we are discussing, therefore parents/guardians should listen to them first to determine that they are happy with these audio files:
“Ring My Bell” by Anita Ward (chorus)
“Ring My Bell” by Collette (chorus)
“Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gumtree” (less than a dozen bars)
“Down Under” by Men At Work (less than a dozen bars)
“Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve (approximately 26 bars)
“The Last Time” by The Rolling Stones (approximately 26 bars)
“Constant Craving” by K.D. Lang (chorus)
“Anybody Seen My Baby?” by The Rolling Stones (chorus)
The relevant legislation and caselaw will be cited, including but not limited to:
