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.

ASSIGNMENT RESULTS

We will endeavour to get the results of your assignments to you as soon as possible. Generally, you can expect your marks about 4 weeks after the assignment due date. We will email all students in a subject when we release the marks online. Your marked assignment will then be returned to you in the post.

Please do not call the office to ask after your assignment. We are in constant contact with markers to try to ensure a speedy return of assignments.

MOOTING

There are a number of student competitions run each year, and some students have expressed an interest in participating. We are gathering expressions of interest to see if we have enough students to create teams. Mooting is a lot of work - but also a lot of fun and a great experience. If you are interested in Mooting, please fill out the Expression of Interest Form.

LPAB CONFIRMATION OF ENROLMENT

Would students please note that registering online with the LEC is not confirmation of enrolment. LEC registration allows the LPAB's students to gain access to their course materials (where applicable).

Students should ensure that they have enrolled seperately with the LPAB and made payment. 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.

A successful online registration with the LEC does not mean that a student's enrolment application has been processed or accepted by the LPAB. If you have an application with the LPAB pending, you should still register with the LEC to ensure you ahve access to materials.
