Out of Bounds App

The Out of Bounds App is an educational and interactive app about laws relating to sexting, cyberbullying and age of consent in South Australia. The app has been specifically designed as a resource to develop understanding and prevent confusion regarding these laws in an increasingly online and interconnected world. The app was developed by the Law Society of South Australia in collaboration with the University of Adelaide, and generously funded by the Law Foundation of SA.

ACCC

The ACCC (Australian Competition & Consumer Commission) have recently updated their teaching resources that are available to Australian teachers. After a change to “business-to-business unfair contract terms law” in November of 2016, they have updated their “Unfair selling practises” module.

The ACCC has 12 online modules, 10 of which have online quizzes that your students can take. They are designed to be incorporated into your current programs, with no background in consumer or competition law necessary.
