IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT BORROWING FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY LIBRARY

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. Therefore it is important to regularly log in to My Loans - https://opac.library.usyd.edu.au/patroninfo~S4 - to check the status of your loans.

1/6/16

DISTANCE STUDENT BORROWING

Could all students using this service please ensure, as per the mailing instructions sent with your books, that all return postage to the Library is marked for the attention of the LPAB Distance Loans Officer? This will ensure that all books are checked in as quickly as possible.

1/6/16

LIBRARY GROUP STUDY ROOM BOOKINGS

Due to a change in the booking system, LPAB students are no longer able to use their UniKey login and password to book a Library group study room. We are working on a solution to this problem. In the meantime, if you wish to book a Library group study room, please email Patrick O’Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian, directly at patrick.omara@sydney.edu.au.

LIBRARY 24 HOUR SPACES - ACCESS FOR LPAB STUDENTS

The Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library and Fisher Library are open 24/7.
The Library still has advertised Information Desk hours – see the drop down menu for each Library at https://library.sydney.edu.au/libraries/locations.html. Outside those hours both the Law Library and Fisher Library are staffed by security personnel only.
LPAB Student / Library cards are not currently enabled with swipe card access. Negotiations between different stakeholders at the University to rectify this are ongoing and you will be notified as soon as this is resolved. However, LPAB students are still able to access the Law Library and Fisher Library 24/7.


The current arrangements for LPAB students and 24/7 access, until further notice, is as follows:
- During Information Desk hours you can enter the Law Library directly as normal.
- Access to and from the Law Library and Fisher Library outside Information Desk hours is via the front entrance to Fisher Library only, with the Law Library being accessible via the internal tunnel on Level 1 of Fisher Library.
- A security guard is stationed inside the entrance to Fisher Library at all times. Just attract the attention of the security guard, show your student ID / Library card through the glass doors and the door to Fisher Library will be opened for you.
- The security guards will be doing ID checks throughout the night so make sure you have your card with you at all times.
- Exiting both Libraries after Information Desk hours is also via the main Fisher Library entrance.  


Full details about 24/7 services at the Law Library and Fisher Library can be found here: https://news.library.usyd.edu.au/fisher-and-law-libraries-go-247/.
If you have any questions at all, or have any difficulties accessing the Library via the above arrangements, please contact Patrick O’Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian directly at patrick.omara@sydney.edu.au. Please do not direct your enquiry to the Law Extension Committee.
Kind regards

Patrick

Library Cards

All new and continuing students who registered with the LEC during the official registration period ending Friday 28th October now have an up to date record on the Library’s circulation system with an expiry date of 31-05-2017. If you registered with the LEC after the official registration period there may be a delay before this takes effect.

New students who registered during the LEC’s registration period can now start borrowing on presentation of photo ID until such time as they receive their cards in the post. You can obtain the Library Borrower Number that will appear on your card by phoning the Law Library Information Desk on (02) 9351 0216. Continuing students who registered during the LEC’s registration period and currently have books checked out to them can now renew these books to obtain the full twelve week loan period (subject to recall of items).

If you have not applied for a Library card the application form can be accessed via the Administration link on the Law Extension Committee’s website.

Tour of NSW Parliament

As you know from your subject guide, there is an optional tour of NSW Parliament House scheduled for Wednesday 22 February 2017. However, the NSW Parliament have contacted us to say that are now unable to accommodate us on this date.

Instead, we have agreed to move the date of the tour forward one week to Wednesday 15 February 2017.

Information about how you can sign up for the tour will be sent out in the new year.

Two questions must be answered.

Part A consists of one compulsory question concerning procedural fairness issues involving allegations of apprehended bias relating to the NSW Ombudsman’s Office. You will have to provide advice to both sides. This question is worth 60 marks.

Part B consists of two questions, from which you have to choose one. One question concerns the hearing rule in procedural fairness. The second question concerns administrative tribunals such as the AAT. This question is worth 20 marks.

Students should familiarise themselves with Kaldas v Barbour (No 2) [2016] NSWSC 1886 (16 December 2016].

The exam will provide a long Subject Case List, to remind students of cases. Only cases dealt with by lecturers in class, need to be referred to.

Assignment Summer 2016/17

Would students please note that the lecturers have decided to give students three questions to choose from for the assignment, rather than two. Therefore, a new version of the assignment question has been uploaded to the WebCampus today.

26 Understanding Legal Language and Legislation 23/1/17

Just a brief note with some information about the exam and the assignment:

  • The additional examination material discussed on Saturday can be found as a post on the ULLL forum on the webcampus;
  • The word limit for question one of the assignment is 1,000 words. There is no word limit for question two (but it is highly unlikely it would take you 1,000 words to answer the legal research questions.) Please ignore the general instructions about word limits, and focus on the limits for the individual questions instead. My apologies for any confusion.
