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.

CORRECTION TO QUESTION 4 OF ASSIGNMENT

Would students please note that there has been a correction made to Question 4 of the Legal Institutions assignment.

CHANGE OF VENUE FOR TONIGHT'S CRIMINAL LAW LECTURE

We have just been informed by University Venues that the A/V equipment in Chemistry Lecture Theatre 1 is not working properly and that they have had to move tonight’s Criminal Law lecture into Chemistry Lecture Theatre 2. That lecture theatre is right next door to ChLT1, so finding it should not be a problem, but it is a smaller venue, so we hope that you are not too uncomfortable. The technicians will be attempting to fix the A/V problem this evening.

   
   
28/5/15 PowerPoint slides for Lecture 3 and Weekend School 1 have been uploaded to the Course Materials section of the Webcampus today.

5/6/15

RESCHEDULING OF EQUITY EVENING LECTURE

As mentioned in the lecture program in the Equity subject guide, it has been necessary to reschedule the evening lecture that should have been held on 9 July, as Mr Radan will not be available to teach on that date. Please be advised that that lecture will now be held from 6 pm to 9 pm on Friday 19 June 2015 in Chemistry Lecture Theatre 3. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this rescheduling; we hope that holding the lecture on a Friday evening will minimise the chance of any clashes with other subjects.

19/6/15 Please note that a document relating to Gerace v Auzhair Supplies Pty Ltd has been uploaded to the Webcampus today. This relates to materials to be covered by Mr Radan in tonight's lecture.
24/6/15

FURTHER CHANGE TO EQUITY LECTURE PROGRAM

Would Equity students please note that Professor Cameron Stewart, who will be giving the Equity lectures after the study break, will not now be available to lecture on Thursday 13 August and therefore we will need to reverse our cancellation of the evening lecture on Thursday 9 July. Mr Stewart will, therefore, be giving his first lecture on Thursday 9 July; there will be no Equity lecture on Thursday 13 August; and the final lecture for this subject will be on Thursday 20 August. Therefore, apart from Week 13, topics will be covered one week earlier than shown in the subject guide.

Would any student who has made alternative plans for 9 July, due to the initial cancellation of the lecture on that date, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

30/6/15

CONFIRMATION OF EVENING LECTURE VENUE FOR SECOND HALF OF SEMESTER

We would confirm that all Equity evening lectures in the second half of the semester will be held in Carslaw Lecture Theatre 373, including the lecture on Thursday 9 July.

GUIDELINES FOR TAXATION ASSIGNMENT

In response to queries received from students, Mr Tony O’Brien has asked us to pass on the following advice: “In answering the Tax Assignment Question students need to discuss:

  1. the tax implications of the loans from International Ltd to John (but not consider any issues as deductibility for International Ltd);
  2. whether John is assessable on the box of meat given to him by Fred (but not consider any issues of deductibility for Fred);
  3. whether Fred is assessable on the payment made by him by John as a consequence of the damage to the shop (but not consider any issues of deductibility for John).”
   
   
13 Succession 11/6/15

CANCELLATION OF SUCCESSION LECTURE

Would Succession students please note that the evening lecture scheduled for Wednesday 17 June has been cancelled, as Mr Brown will not now be available to teach on that date. As Mr Brown believes that all topics can be covered in the remaining lectures, it is not intended, at this stage, that a replacement lecture be organised.

   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
19/6/15

UNSATISFACTORY PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT

In the second lecture, when discussing unsatisfactory professional conduct, I referred to articles in the Law Society Journal by Frank Riley and Rosemary MacDougal. Unfortunately I have yet to locate the reference to the article by Riley – although he has a section in the Solicitor’s Manual – however, the following is the reference to the article by MacDougal – “Unsatisfactory Professional Conduct. What is it?” – Law Society Journal, vol 29, no 3, March 1991, pp 42-45.
23/6/15

Mr Pierotti has now asked us to upload the following message from him.

"Further to my note of last week, the citation to the article by Frank Riley is as follows:

Volume 36
June 1998
page 64
"Unsatisfactory professional conduct to be published in Tribunal reports" - Frank Riley"

   
   
9/6/15 Calendars for this semester have been uploaded to the Course Materials section of the Webcampus. These show which lecturer will be giving which lecture.
   
   
19/5/15

CORRECTION TO INSOLVENCY ASSIGNMENT

Please note that an error in the Insolvency assignment originally uploaded has been brought to Mr Russell's attention. The question should have asked students to advise the Europa directors (and not the Jupiter directors) about the company's legal position, and their own legal position. A corrected version of the assignment has now been uploaded to the Webcampus.

12/6/15

RESCHEDULING OF INSOLVENCY LECTURE

We would confirm that Insolvency evening lectures will resume after the study break on Tuesday 14 July rather than 7 July as stated in the Course Information Handbook and Subject Guide. We understand that Mr Russell has already discussed this rescheduling with evening students. Insolvency evening lectures will now continue this semester until Tuesday 18 August (Week 13).

23/6/15

RESCHEDULED INSOLVENCY LECTURE

We can now confirm that the final Insolvency lecture for the semester, which will now be on 18 August, will be held in Carslaw Lecture Theatre 175, as will the other Insolvency lectures in the second half of semester.

   
   
26/6/15

VENUE FOR SECOND HALF OF WINTER 2015 SEMESTER

Please note that Conflict of Laws evening lectures in the second half of the semester will be held in New Law School Seminar Room 115, as in the first half.

   
   
1/5/15 Please note that a corrected version of the subject guide was uploaded this morning. Unfortunately the dates of the study break in the subject guide originally uploaded had not been updated for the coming semester. Apologies for any confusion this has caused.
12/5/15 A list of recent authorities has today been added to the Course Materials section of the Webcampus. The list has been forwarded to the Law Library and it is hoped that links to the cases will be available via the supplementary materials page shortly.
22/5/15

In response to an enquiry about the assignment received from a Family Law student, Ms Cotter-Moroz has asked us to post the following message:

“The assignment requires the student to prepare a detailed submission to the proposed amendments. The question is broad enough to allow the student flexibility in the way in which their submission is structured and the emphasis that the student chooses to place on some or all of the proposed amendments to which their submission relates. However, it is expected that the student will support their submission by considering the reason/s for the proposed amendment as well as a prognosis of whether or not the proposed amendment will be effective and that this will include a consideration of relevant case law."

26/6/15

Ms Cotter-Moroz has asked us to advise students that there WILL be a lecture on 8 July 2015, as scheduled.

   
 

 

   
   
   
   
   
   
11/5/15 Two sets of PowerPoint slides for Lecture 1 have now been uploaded to the Course Materials section of the Webcampus.

Please note that Public International Law evening lectures in the second half of the semester will be held in New Law School Seminar Room 117 and NOT in New Law School Annexe Seminar Room 446, the venue for lectures in the first half.

   
   
   
   
26 Understanding Legal Language and Legislation 9/6/15 PowerPoint slides for Modules 1 to 3 have now been uploaded to the Course Materials section of the Webcampus.
23/6/15

VENUES FOR SECOND SESSION OF ULL COURSE

New venues have now been found for the second session of the ULL course. The session with Patrick O'Mara will still take place in the Law Library's Computer Training Room 2 as shown in the subject guide. However the lectures from 1 pm to 5 pm on Friday 31 July will be held in New Law School Seminar Room 028 and lectures from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday 1 August 2015 will be held in New Law School Seminar Room 022.
