This paper considers some of the problems confronted by teachers teaching law subjects in an Australian tertiary institution where the student class population comprises both domestic Australian and international exchange students. Four particular factors are identified which frequently need to be addressed to reduce classroom and student dislocation, these being human, international, knowledge-context and learning-mode-experience. The paper considers the notion of education as sustainable product and discusses the legislation enacted by Australia’s Federal Government in an effort to protect and assist international students studying in Australia. In particular, the consumer protection of the legislation is considered.
