We have been notified that St James Lecture Theatre 1 is to be repainted at the end of this week and we will not be able to hold the lectures there that we had scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday or Friday of this week.

CONVEYANCING ASSIGNMENT

We have been asked by Mr David Ross to pass on to students the following message.

"In response to inquiries of Mr. Ross at the last weekend school whether the assignment could be released early to assist those doing a number of subjects which have deadlines in the same week, Mr. Henningham has advised that the assignment will be announced after he has covered lecture 5 material which the assignment may involve.

26/6/14

FURTHER CHANGE TO ASSIGNMENT DUE DATE

Would you please note that, as one of the assignment questions is on the subject of Rawls and the lecture on Rawls is not being delivered until the evening of the current assignment due date, the lecturers have decided to push back the due date to Thursday 31 July 2014. The Jurisprudence assignment will therefore be due on the Thursday of Week 10 of the lecture program.

CHANGE OF VENUE FOR CONFLICT OF LAWS EVENING LECTURES

The venue for the lecture on 19 June will have to be confirmed at a later date as Eastern Avenue Seminar Room 311 has been reserved for University of Sydney examinations on that date.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this late venue change.

30/5/14

CONFLICT OF LAWS HANDOUT

For the information of any evening lecture students who did not attend the lecture on Thursday 22 May, the handout distributed at that lecture was an article from the Torts Law Journal: Kernick, "Shipboard torts in territorial waters" (2002) 10 TLJ 223.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY EVENING LECTURE MONDAY 7 JULY 2014

Ms Catanzariti has notified us that she has to be in Casino next Monday, 7 July. She will be flying back to Sydney that afternoon but will not be back on time to start her lecture at the usual time of 6 pm.  It has, however, been decided to start the lecture at 7 pm that evening, and have a shorter than usual lecture, rather than postpone the lecture altogether, as she does not want to fall further behind in covering the topics. If you are an evening lecture student, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this change.

CHANGE OF VENUE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LECTURES 14 JULY AND 21 JULY 2014

Would students please note that the Intellectual Property evening lectures on 14 July and 21 July 2014 will now be held in St James Lecture Theatre 2 rather than St James Lecture Theatre 4. However Lecture Theatre 2 is not available to us on Monday evenings after 21 July and therefore lectures after that date will be held in Lecture Theatre 4, as originally advised.
