Monash University Faculty of Law

Monash University Faculty of Law, or Monash Law School, is the law school of Monash University. Founded in 1963, it is based in Melbourne and has campuses in Australia and Italy; the Faculty of Law is ranked in the top 30 law schools in the world and is among the highest ranked law schools in Australia. In 2014, it was ranked 16th in the world in the QS World University Rankings. In 2018, it was ranked first in Australia in the Academic Ranking of World Universities. Entry to the Bachelor of Laws is competitive, with an ATAR score of 98 required for guaranteed entry in 2017; the Faculty of Law offers a wide variety of degrees, including the Bachelor of Laws, with which students may combine other degrees as part of a double degree, the Juris Doctor, Master of Laws, the Doctor of Juridical Science and the Doctor of Philosophy. It has 3,500 undergraduate and postgraduate students and over 100 professors and teaching associates; the Faculty of Law's alumni include two Chief Justices of the Supreme Court of Victoria and former judges of the Federal Court of Australia, Supreme Court of Victoria, Supreme Court of New South Wales, County Court of Victoria and High Court of Hong Kong, distinguished academics and legal scholars and state politicians including two Treasurers of Australia, prominent businesspersons and media personalities.

A number of senior judicial positions in Victoria, including Chief Justice of Victoria, are occupied by alumni of the Faculty of Law. The Monash University Law Review is the Faculty of Law's flagship academic journal, it is supervised by faculty advisors. In the 1950s, it had become clear that Melbourne's only law school at the time, Melbourne Law School, would soon be unable to meet the rising demand for legal education. Although Monash University was founded to focus on science and technology, it would establish a law school; the need was not considered pressing enough to make a law school a foundation faculty of the new university. The Victorian Council of Legal Education, the Chief Justice of Victoria and the Victorian Government pushed for the overnight establishment of a law school at Monash University, but this was resisted by the University's Vice-Chancellor, Sir Louis Matheson, who wanted a high quality, well-planned, original faculty of law. In the end, it was over a short period of time – 5 months from October 1963 to March 1964 – that a first-year law school curriculum was established and two teaching staff were appointed.

However, when students first arrived in 1964, they did so with the knowledge that the curriculum for their years was still being written. A law library was established with impressive speed, after substantial book donations from two former justices of the Supreme Court of Victoria. Appropriately for a law school, the Faculty's establishment was delayed by a dispute over the interpretation of the Monash University Act, concerning when and how the University Council could set up new faculties. Following debate between Monash University, the Crown Solicitor and the Parliamentary Draftsmen, the Act was amended. David P. Derham was the Faculty of Law's first dean, beginning his term on 29 February 1964 after resigning his post as Professor of Jurisprudence at Melbourne Law School the day before. Derham sought to depart radically from the way that law had been taught in Australia, his appointment was announced on a Monday, he was outlining detailed proposals for first-year subjects by the following Friday.

He drastically reworked the curriculum and teaching style which his faculty had taught at Melbourne Law School. Monash University introduced small-group teaching, interactive lectures and a curriculum which emphasised legal skills in addition to a knowledge of the law itself. According to Derham, the reason behind this move was that the law is "not static, it moves and grows." This was in contrast to the conventional style of teaching in other Australian law schools, in which part-time staff members would deliver lectures to a hall of students with little or no student-teacher interaction. A similar transformation took place at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. In years, Derham managed to establish strong international links with law schools in North America and Europe, which continue today; the first intake of law school students began in March 1964 with an initial enrollment of 149 students, after a lengthy selection and interview process. The first lecture, for the first year subject "The Legal System", was held by Derham on Monday 9 March 1964, with all staff sitting anxiously in the front row.

According to the Faculty of Law's early staff members, the opportunity to develop a new and original law school excited all those involved in Monash Law School's early years. In addition to its teaching reforms, Monash became the first law school in Australia to establish its own community legal centres, which were and continue to be run by students under the supervision of staff and other lawyers. In 1971, Monash set another precedent for Australian law schools when Enid Campbell became the first female Dean of any Law School in Australia's history; when Monash University expanded in the 1990s, the Faculty of Law chose not to extend itself to other campuses. Instead, it chose selectively to use Monash University's global presence to create new opportunities for international study and research; the result was the establishment and expansion of intern

Battle of Warbonnet Creek

The Battle of Warbonnet Creek was a skirmish characterized by a duel between "Buffalo Bill" Cody and a young Cheyenne warrior named Heova'ehe or Yellow Hair. The engagement is referred to as the First Scalp for Custer, it occurred July 1876, in Sioux County in northwestern Nebraska. After the defeat of Gen. George A. Custer at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, many Native Americans joined with Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, encouraged by the Indians' success. About 200-300 Cheyenne warriors led by Morning Star set out with their families from the Spotted Tail and Red Cloud agencies in Nebraska; the United States Army had sent the 5th Cavalry Regiment, commanded by Lt. Col. Eugene Asa Carr, from Oklahoma to a position on the Cheyenne River in South Dakota to guard against such an occurrence. Carr was replaced in command on July 1 by Col. Wesley Merritt, when news of the Battle of the Little Big Horn reached Gen. George Crook on July 5, the 5th Cavalry was ordered to reinforce Crook on Goose Creek in Wyoming.

Word of the breakout of the Cheyenne reached Merritt and, guided by "Buffalo Bill" Cody, he was able to intercept the Cheyenne warriors. Merritt planned an ambush, he posted sharpshooters nearby out of sight. Spotting Merritt's unescorted wagon train along Warbonnet Creek, a small war party of six Cheyenne warriors charged directly into the trap to divert attention from the main body of Cheyenne. A few warriors were wounded by the troopers, but the only real action of the engagement was a "duel" between Buffalo Bill and a Cheyenne chief, Yellow Hair. Cody shot and killed the Indian with his Winchester carbine pulled out a Bowie knife and scalped him; the main body of warriors attempted to rescue the small war party, but fled so after seeing the true strength of the U. S. forces that not a single trooper was injured. Merritt joined Crook, whose expedition linked up with that of Gen. Alfred H. Terry, bringing the combined strength of the U. S. force to about 4,000. The showman, Buffalo Bill returned to the stage in October, his show highlighted by a melodramatic reenactment of his duel with Yellow Hair.

He displayed the fallen warrior's scalp, feather war bonnet, knife and other personal effects. He often celebrated the killing during his Wild West shows in a reenactment he entitled "The Red Right Hand, or, Buffalo Bill's First Scalp for Custer".

Exchange District

The Exchange District is a National Historic Site of Canada in the downtown area of Winnipeg, Canada. Just one block north of Portage and Main, the Exchange District comprises twenty city blocks and 150 heritage buildings, it is known for its intact early 20th century collection of warehouses, financial institutions, early terra cotta clad skyscrapers; the Exchange is home to the Manitoba Museum as well as a Science Gallery. The Exchange District spans the East Exchange and the West Exchange; the east Exchange area is located between the Disraeli Bridge, Waterfront Drive, William Stephenson Way and Main Street, the West Exchange is bounded by Adelaide Street, Ross Avenue, Notre Dame Avenue and Main Street. The Exchange District’s name originates from the Winnipeg Grain Exchange, the former centre of the grain industry in Canada, as well as other commodity exchanges which developed in Winnipeg between 1881–1918, some of which are still active today. Winnipeg was one of the fastest growing cities in North America around the turn of the 20th century.

The city became known as the Chicago of the North. Much of Winnipeg’s remaining architecture of the late 1800s and early 1900s is influenced by the Chicago style. By 1911, Winnipeg had become the third largest city in Canada. At the time it had more than two dozen rail lines converging near the city centre along with over 200 wholesale businesses. World War I and the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 slowed Winnipeg's growth, as there was a new route for shipping goods from Eastern Canada and Europe to Western Canada and from East Asia to the larger markets on the Eastern seaboard; as wholesale operations began to open in other Western Canadian cities, such as Edmonton, Moose Jaw, Regina, Winnipeg's importance as a wholesale centre declined in the 1910s and 1920s. By the 1940s, many of the warehouses in the Exchange District had been converted into uses related to the garment trade; as Winnipeg began to experience growth in the years following World War II, much of Winnipeg’s downtown development shifted to the area of downtown south of Portage Avenue along Broadway and on towards Osborne Village.

The lack of new development, mixed with the existing demand for inexpensive wholesaling and manufacturing space, left the Exchange District intact. As a result, Winnipeg today has one of the most intact early 20th century commercial districts in North America. In the early 1980s the streetscaping in the area was improved with the creation of wider sidewalks appropriate street furniture and decorative paving patterns and materials. On September 27, 1997, the Winnipeg Exchange District was declared a National Historic Site by federal Minister of Canadian Heritage, Sheila Copps; the Exchange District today thrives as one of Winnipeg's commercial and cultural centers, as home to an array of specialty retailers, nightclubs, art galleries and condos. Winnipeg's theatre district is located on the east side of the Exchange District, home to the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, Centennial Concert Hall which houses the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Manitoba Opera; the west side of the Exchange is home to Cinematheque, a small movie theatre located on the main floor of the Artspace building on Albert Street.

Red River College's Roblin Centre is a 220,000-square-foot building that features the original façades along Princess Street, incorporates modern green building technology. The Roblin Centre's construction merged five prominent heritage buildings on Princess Street as well as a 1905 warehouse on William Avenue, it is home to 200 staff and 2,000 students. The Centre has a focus on modern media, information technology, business; the Paterson Globalfoods Institute is a new addition to Red River College's Exchange District Campus as of 2013. The Institute is located at the Union Bank Building, an 11 storey building that dates back to 1903, is the home of the Culinary Arts and Tourism Management and Professional Baking and Patisserie programs. Old Market Square hosts the annual Jazz Winnipeg Festival, the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, the Manitoba Electronic Music Exhibition, its cobblestone streets and friendly pedestrian environment contribute to The Exchange District's popularity as a period backdrop for the movie industry.

Most notably the 2006 film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford starring Brad Pitt, the 2006 film The Lookout starring Jeff Daniels. Old Market Square originated in 1889 as a public market building. Located on the site of what is now the Public Safety Building, it was the centre of Winnipeg's early commercial trade. In 1964 to 1965, the original building as well as several nearby structures were razed to make room for the current Civic Centre. In 1970, an "Old Market Square Association" was created to lobby for the preservation and improvement of the site. In 1976, the national historic trust, Heritage Canada, announced a $500,000 grant to towards the purchase and restoration of significant buildings in the Old Market Square area, with a focus on Albert Street and what was known as "Albert Street Park"; the park became the venue for a farmer's market which brought momentum to the rejuvenation of the area. In 1990, a permanent stage was built in the park. Begun in 2008 and completed in 2012, a revitalization program began that improved landscaping, drainage and lighting.

Developed by Scatliff+Miller+Murray, the new area features a performance space, a sunken event lawn, serpentine seating wall and seating planters encircling elm trees. The focal point of the renovation was "The
