There are significant fines for the non-return of high demand items and lost material. Items borrowed from the Library (including from the Law and Law Reserch collections) are subject to the fine conditions listed here: http://www.library.usyd.edu.au/borrowing/fines.html.

Overdue and recall notices are sent to students via email but as a courtesy only and the Library does not accept responsibility for the non-receipt of emails.

UPDATE ON HOWIE & JOHNSON TEXT

Following a phone call from a student last week, we contacted LexisNexis regarding the expected date of publication of a new edition of Howie & Johnson, Annotated Criminal Legislation New South Wales. We have now been advised that the new edition is not expected to be available until the end of November. LexisNexis themselves have no stock left of the 2013-14 edition, but say that the Co-op Bookshop does have stock and students can purchase online from them if they cannot visit the bookshop in person. The Co-op Bookshop also has a small number of two-book packs, comprising the two Criminal Law prescribed texts, for a special price.

29/10/14

FURTHER UPDATE ON HOWIE & JOHNSON TEXT

The LEC was advised yesterday afternoon by the Co-op Bookshop that they no longer have stock of the 2013-14 edition of the Howie and Johnson text. This information was relayed to the lecturers and Mr Greg Sarginson has now advised that students will be able to manage with the Hayes and Eburn text until the new edition of the Howie and Johnson is available.

3/12/14 It was brought to our attention this afternoon that there was a typographical error in the assignment question uploaded earlier today. The word "ant-depressant" should of course have read "anti-depressant"! This has now been corrected.

CONVEYANCING SUBJECT GUIDE FOR SUMMER 2014-15 SEMESTER

Mr Bill Henningham has notified us today that the delay in forwarding the Conveyancing subject guide to us has been due to the fact that he and Mr Ross had been hoping to sight a copy of a new Contract of Sale before finalising the subject guide. Unfortunately the new Contract of Sale will not now be available until later this month. It is expected that the subject guide will be available either tomorrow or Monday. However Mr Henningham has confirmed that the prescribed materials will be the same as those for last semester. The subject guide for last semester can be downloaded via the link to "subject pages" on the homepage. Mr Henningham says that he will be going through the list of texts and materials at the first evening lecture and you do not need to purchase any books before that lecture.

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.

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.

18/12/14

CHANGE OF DUE DATE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ASSIGNMENT

It has been necessary for us to change the due date of the Intellectual Property assignment as the assignment question is not yet available for uploading to the Webcampus and the LEC office is closing this evening for the Christmas break.
