Study a Bachelor of Laws in Sydney
Like many Universities, such as University of Melbourne, University of Sydney and University of New South Wales, our law program is fully accredited. This accreditation includes approval from the Commonwealth Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) and the NSW Legal Practice Admissions Board.
Sydney City School of Law’s program is of the required duration and covers 11 areas of law and procedure commonly known as the Priestly 11. These are contained in Schedule 1 of the Uniform Admission Rules 2014, and form the basic content for what is required for admission to legal practice in Australia.
A clear path to a range of career options when you study for a LLB in Sydney
Students graduating with a Sydney City School of Law's Degree and seeking to enter legal practice will be on track to undertake the Practical Legal Training (PLT) course required before applying for admission to practice. Alternatively, graduates will be able to use the valuable research, analytical, communication, negotiation, and other skills learned in their law course to embark on a host of other careers. Indeed, a law degree is one of the best preparations for many roles in our increasingly complex, inter-related and law-bound society, including jobs of the future that have not yet been created.
The Uniform Admission Rules also specify that the academic requirement for admission includes completing an academic course for the equivalent of at least three years’ full time study of law.
Internationally focused Bachelor of Laws program
Sydney City School of Law’s program includes professors with extensive international experience. We offer electives that focus on such areas as: international trade, public international law, and international finance, accounting and business. Our courses take a global view and enable students to study law in an international setting. Our courses are designed to be as practical, relevant, timely and current as possible.
Our students will be part of an international network that will equip them to use their law degree in what has become an increasingly global and international work environment.
This program provides students with a course of studies leading to the award of a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree. The degree is designed to equip students with the intellectual, critical and practical skills needed for success in the practice of law.
In addition to core subjects, the program offers an extensive range of elective subjects and extra-curricular activities, including international exchange and internship opportunities, enabling students to put into practice the knowledge and skills acquired in the academic environment.
Upon completion, students can enroll in another institution for the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, and apply to the Legal Profession Admission Board for admission as solicitors.
