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 CLOSURE AND OPENING HOURS IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY

Dear LPAB students

As previously notified, the Law Library will close for the University Christmas closedown at 5pm on Thursday 18th December and will re-open at 9am on Monday 5th January.

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.

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays: 9am to 6pm
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 9am to 8pm
Saturdays: 9am to 5pm
Sundays and Public Holidays: Closed (except Sunday 1st February 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 2015.

Regards
Patrick O’Mara
LPAB Librarian

EVIDENCE ASSIGNMENT

Ms Miiko Kumar has asked us to pass on the following comments to Evidence students.

"Dear Students,

Due to the critical incident at Martin Place on Monday, the lecture on hearsay was cancelled. This means that I have decided that hearsay is not examinable in the assignment. I will award NO marks for hearsay - it is NOT part of the marking guide.


Kind regards
Miiko"

LEC OFFICE RE-OPENS

You will probably be aware by now that the LEC office staff were evacuated from the St James Campus in Phillip Street on Monday morning due to the siege at the Lindt cafe. We have only just been allowed back into the building this morning. As you can imagine, we have returned to many email enquiries and hundreds of assignments that now need to be processed before the Christmas break and we would ask for your patience over the next couple of days as we try to catch up.

If you have sent an email simply asking what is going on or about lectures that were scheduled to be held at the St James Campus in the last two days, would you please accept this as a reply to your email, as we may not be able to respond to you individually. We will be working through all other emails over the next two days. Please give us some time to get back to you.

If you have submitted your assignment over the last few days and are concerned that it is not showing on your record, this is because we have not been here to send data to the server. This will be rectified this morning and your submission should appear shortly.

All lectures scheduled to be held at the St James Campus this evening will take place as scheduled and we will be rescheduling the lectures that had to be cancelled on Monday and Tuesday evenings. We will notify students of the arrangements in the New Year.

Again, we would request your patience over the next two days while we try to catch up with the backlog of emails and assignment processing.

CANCELLATION OF TONIGHT'S EQUITY LECTURE

We have just been advised that, due to unforeseen circumstances, Mr Peter Radan will not be able to teach this evening. Would you please note, therefore, that tonight's Equity lecture will not take place. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this late cancellation. We will need to notify students at a later date about arrangements for a rescheduled lecture.

     
9 Dec 2014  

CHANGE TO CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE LECTURE PROGRAM

Mr Greg Sarginson has asked us to notify students that the Criminal Law and Procedure lectures on 9 and 16 December will cover the issues of assault, sexual assault, and indecent assault. Property offences will then follow in subsequent lectures in the New Year.

     
5 Dec 2014  

CHANGE OF VENUE FOR ALL LECTURES SCHEDULED TO BE HELD IN THE CARSLAW BUILDING 15-18 DECEMBER 2014

We have been advised that there will be a full power shutdown of the Eastern Avenue and Carslaw Buildings between 15 and 18 December. It has therefore been necessary to find new venues for lectures that were to be held in the Carslaw Building that week. Would students who normally attend lectures in the Carslaw Building please refer to the message board for ongoing notices, under the relevant subject heading, for more information.

UNIKEY ACCOUNT INFORMATION - REGISTER NOW!

From Monday, 3 November, new students who have registered online with the LEC during the enrolment period can begin to self register for their Unikey Account. Refer to the instructions for more information.

To self register for your Unikey Account click here.

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

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

     
30 Oct 2014  

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 assignments and course materials (where available) 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.

     
13 Dec 2013  

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.

     
16 May 2013  

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.
