Combined Law - The Sydney LLB - Professional Recognition

Completion of the Sydney LLB will lead to admission to practice law in New South Wales.

Additional requirements must be met before a Law graduate can 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.
