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.

LEC SECOND-HAND TEXT BULLETIN BOARD

Students may have noticed that we have removed the link to the LEC Second-hand Text Bulletin Board which could previously be found on the "Second-hand Texts" page under "Student Services" on our website. This was necessary because we have been unable to gain access to administer the bulletin board and therefore unable to assist students who have wanted to remove personal details posted by them. We would apologise to students who have only recently posted messages on the board and were waiting for a response..

This is a non-compulsory short course that is offered free of charge to all students who have completed one semester of study with the LEC. Click here for a copy of the subject guide. An email will be forwarded today to all students registered with the LEC last semester, asking those who are interested in attending the course to complete and return the expression of interest form that will be attached to our email.

BETWEEN SEMESTERS HEALTH LAW AND LANGUAGE SKILLS COURSES

As the examination period will be commencing shortly, we wanted to give students advance notice of two short courses that will be offered during the break between the summer and winter semesters.

The LEC is pleased to be able to offer an intensive course on law and health care during the break, taught by one of Australia's leading authorities on health law, Professor Cameron Stewart. The course, "Introduction to Health Law and Bioethics", will be held on Saturday 28 March and Sunday 29 March on the University's main campus. This course has been offered for the last two years during the semester break and we have received only positive feedback from students. Further information about the course will be available shortly via this message board and Expression of Interest Forms will be emailed to all current students around 16 March.

Our Language Skills for Lawyers course will also be offered again during the break, with classes on Saturday 21 March and Saturday 11 April 2015. An email inviting expressions of interest should be received by all currently registered students early next week. This course is designed for students who would like to improve the way they write, to be more precise in their language and to learn the basis of traditional grammar and punctuation. It is recommended for those students who intend to take the Understanding Legal Language and Legislation course.

It will be part of the obligations of all involved with the LEC program to become familiar with, and abide by, the Code.
