WELCOME TO THE LAW EXTENSION COMMITTEE

DIPLOMA IN LAW COURSE

 

Prospective students should visit the future students section for more information about the Diploma in Law program and visit the LPAB website for information on how to register as a Student-at-Law.

The Law Extension Committee (LEC) was established by the Senate of the University of Sydney in 1964. The LEC's function is to provide legal education for students undertaking the NSW LPAB Diploma in Law examinations.

The LEC is appointed by the University Senate and comprises members and nominees proposed by the University, the Chief Justice of New South Wales, The NSW Bar Association and Law Society, and the Faculty of Law. Lectures are given by practitioners and university teachers. Weekend Schools are offered each semester for external students.

The aim of the LEC is to provide affordable and accessible legal education in support of the LPAB Diploma in Law course. The program is not able to offer all the services and individual attention of a comprehensive campus, however through our webcampus we endeavour to provide additional support and materials to aid students in their studies. This course requires students to manage their time efficiently to meet all requirements and to be able to work independently. There is a strong orientation towards education for legal practice.

LEC WEBCAMPUS

The LEC has expanded all of its WEBCAMPUS facilities and all students enrolled in the course are given access to online registration, change of details, subject guides, notes and supplementary materials, subject discussion forum, secure assignment lodgement and receipting, assignment processing and results screen. This facility is constantly growing as we expand our services.

LAW LIBRARY CHRISTMAS CLOSEDOWN AND OPENING HOURS IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY 2016

Dear LPAB students

As previously notified, the Law Library will close for the University Christmas / New Year Closedown at 5pm on Thursday 17th December 2015 and will re-open at 9am on Monday 4th January 2016.

Please note that no books that you have on loan (including items that are recalled) will have a due date during the closedown period.

Distance students please note that no further requests for distance loans by post can be processed before tomorrow’s closedown as we can no longer guarantee that they will be sent through the University’s internal mail network prior to the closedown.

The Law Library’s opening hours from Monday 4th January 2015 to Sunday 28th February 2016 are as follows:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: 9am to 6pm
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 9am to 8pm
Saturdays: 9am to 5pm
Sundays and Public Holidays: Closed (except Sunday 31st January during Weekend School 2, when we will be open from 10am to 5pm).

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season and I look forward to working with you in 2016.

Regards
Patrick O’Mara
LPAB Librarian

FAMILY LAW EVENING LECTURE VENUE AFTER CHRISTMAS BREAK

We have been advised that Mills Lecture Room 209 will not now be available to us during January and February, as the University will be refurbishing that room over the summer period. Family Law lectures after the Christmas break will therefore continue to be held in New Law School Learning Studio 030, as they have been in the first half of the semester.

UNIKEY ACCOUNT INFORMATION - REGISTER NOW!

From Monday 2 November 2015, new students who have registered online with the LEC can begin to self register for their UniKey account. Refer to the instructions for more information.

To self register for your UniKey acount, click here.

Existing students will have their UniKey account re-validated once they have registered online for the current session.

Since the enrolment packs for the Summer 2015-16 Semester were sent to students, the ICT Helpdesk has asked us to advise students that, if they are having password issues, they should phone the Helpdesk rather than email them, as passwords cannot be reset by email. They have also asked us to advise students that their business hours are 8 am to 9 pm.

If you have not yet registered online, this will delay your access to the supplementary materials available on the Law Library's electronic reserve. Please register online without delay.

     
30 Oct 2015  

LPAB CONFIRMATION OF ENROLMENT

Would students please note that registering online with the LEC is not a confirmation of their enrolment with the LPAB. If students have not received their enrolment confirmation letter within 28 days of the last day of enrolment, they should contact the LPAB's Student Services Officer.

The LEC online registration process for the current session allows the LPAB's students to gain access to their course materials (where applicable) by the commencement of lectures. A successful online registration with the LEC does not mean a student's enrolment application has been processed and accepted by the LPAB.

CAMPUS WiFi

The University of Sydney ICT has advised that any LPAB students unable to access the UniSydney wireless network should contact the ICT Help Desk directly on 9351 6000. The Help Desk will reset your password over the phone so that WiFi is enabled.

     
14 March 2012   LEC CODE OF CONDUCT

The Course Information Handbook in recent years has included a section “Conduct, Character and the Study of Law”. Principles of behavior appropriate to the environments in which our program is offered have been gathered into one foundation document. You are welcome to make suggestions. It will be part of the obligations of all involved with the LEC program to become familiar with, and abide by, the Code. A copy of the document is available on the Ongoing Message Board in the General LEC Notices section.
