Legal Professional Development (LPD) and Events Program
Sydney Law School offers an extensive program of seminars and conferences for lawyers, barristers and anyone with an interest in the diverse field of law. Experience a diversity of events within world class, purpose-built facilities at the New Law Building on the University’s Camperdown campus.
In addition to lectures, seminars and conferences presented by academic staff from the law school and across the University, our extensive program of international and interstate visitors ensures a dynamic and broad program of lectures throughout each year.
The study of the law affects, and is affected by, all areas of life – the environment, health, family, indigenous affairs, our regional and international neighbours, social and criminal justice, business and employment, and our constitution and system of government, to name but a few. Our extensive program of lectures and seminars will engage and inspire, reinforcing the all-pervading role of legal research and practice in the community.
In 2009, the Sydney Law School celebrated the move to the New Law Building with an exciting and challenging program of lectures by leading minds from across the globe. The program now expands to showcase the talent within the faculty, celebrating the high level of scholarship and community engagement that is such an integral part of what we do.

Conferences, Seminars, Courses and Postgraduate Units of Study are available to anyone with an interest in the area of study. There is no prior educational requirement although some Postgraduate Units assume a prior knowledge in the area.
It is also possible to undertake a small number of courses which are conducted in Berlin and Cambridge under the Faculty's Sydney Law School in Europe program as part of your continuing legal education.
