A maximum of 60 students will be accepted into the program and applicants are strongly urged to submit applications without delay to avoid disappointment. Preference is given to University of Sydney law students and then to cross-institutional law students. Non-degree and non-law applications are considered only if space permits. Late applications will not be considered.

Applications will be assessed and you will be notified as to whether your application has been successful in early September.

Cross-institutional applicants are advised to contact their home institution to confirm that the Winter School can be credited to their degree. Students are required to obtain written permission from their home institution before applying to Sydney Law School and paying the non-refundable deposit. Cross-institutional students are required to provide a current academic transcript at the time of application.
