The Sydney Juris Doctor (JD) – Student Contribution Rates, Costs and Fees


Anna-Lisa Doumani

“The Sydney JD forms an excellent basis for success within the legal profession, demanding from students a high level of critical thinking and competence. The depth of experience within the faculty in countless areas of the law inspires and enables students to immerse themselves in their studies with enthusiasm. The program boasts a strong international flavour, with the possibility of studying offshore units or participating in a semester long exchange opening the doors to suit a wide range of interests. Perhaps most importantly, the structure of the JD facilitates the immediate development of close relationships with fellow students, providing a strong support network which endures far beyond completion of the degree."
