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.

CHANGE TO WEEKEND SCHOOL TIMETABLING, LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND PLANNING

All Local Government and Planning students should have received an email from us today regarding the change in the timetabling for this subject at the upcoming weekend school. This rescheduling has been necessary so that Mr Bill Henningham will be able to teach both Conveyancing and Local Government and Planning at the weekend school, as Mr Ross, who usually teaches Conveyancing at the weekend schools, will not be able to teach for us this weekend. Lectures in Local Government and Planning will now be held from 8 am to noon on Sunday 30 November in New Law School Seminar Room 020 (as originally scheduled) and then noon to 4 pm the same day (venue to be confirmed), with breaks.

Local Government and Planning evening lecture students are welcome to attend the weekend school lectures, if they wish to do so.

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.

SCAM ALERT

We have been informed that students at the UTS and UNSW have reported dubious Facebook approaches by a person purporting to offer jobs for students.

One ploy seems to be a request for money in return for arranging an interview. Another involves an advertisement for a non-existent legal research position.

Students are being advised to monitor their social media sites carefully to ensure that they are not vulnerable to exploitation.
