Combined Law - The Sydney LLB - Professional Recognition

James Nguyen, Commerce/Law

"There's no doubt that my education at the University of Sydney Law School has been the foundation of my career to date. Private practice is such an exciting and fast paced environment and nothing prepares you better for that than learning from some of the best legal minds. The possibilities with a law degree from Sydney Law School are so broad because the skills you learn, including critical thinking and reasoning, are so highly regarded in the economy."

James Nguyen, Commerce/Law

Completion of the Sydney LLB will satisfy the undergraduate academic requirements needed to apply for admission as a solicitor in New South Wales. Additional requirements must be met before a Law graduate can be admitted and practice as a lawyer in NSW. Information on these requirements is available from The Legal Profession Admission Board.

If you intend to practice in another State or overseas, you must consult the relevant professional body or equivalent to determine whether the Sydney LLB is acceptable as a legal qualification. It is not the responsibility of the Sydney Law School to do so.
