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.

LIBRARY 24 HOUR SPACES - ACCESS FOR LPAB STUDENTS

As you may be aware, the Law Library and Fisher Library will be open 24/7 from 8am on Monday 25th July.

The Library will still have advertised core operating hours and outside those hours both Libraries will be staffed by security personnel only. Access to and from the buildings outside core operating hours will be via the front entrance to Fisher Library only, with the Law Library being accessible via the internal tunnel on Level 1 of Fisher Library.

Access outside core operating hours will be via swipe card only. This presents difficulties for LPAB students because your LPAB Student / Library cards are not currently enabled with swipe card access. Negotiations between different stakeholders at the University to rectify this are ongoing and you will be notified as soon as this is resolved.

The current arrangements for LPAB students and 24/7 access, until further notice, is as follows:

  • LPAB students can use both the Law Library and Fisher Library on a 24/7 basis but you will need to be inside the Library at the conclusion of the Library’s core operating hours for that day. For example, on Monday 25th July, both Libraries close at 10pm and re-open the following day at 8am. You will need to be inside the Library before 10pm to use the facilities between 10pm and 8am the following day.
  • Because LPAB students do not currently have swipe card access, once you leave the Library outside the core operating hours you will not be able to get back in until core operating hours resume the following morning.
  • Security guards will be doing ID checks throughout the night so you will be required to have your LPAB Student / Library card with you at all times.
  • Exiting outside core operating hours will be via the main Fisher Library entrance. There will be a security guard stationed there throughout the night.

Full details about the Law Library and Fisher Library going 24/7 can be found here: https://news.library.usyd.edu.au/fisher-and-law-libraries-go-247/.

If you have any questions at all please contact Patrick O’Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian directly at patrick.omara@sydney.edu.au. Please do not direct your enquiry to the Law Extension Committee.

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.
