main method of tuition for external students is the two weekend
schools offered each semester. Students enrolling as external students
should do so on the understanding that, although the weekend schools
are not compulsory, it is expected that students are able to attend
at least these classes during the semester. If students are unable
to attend either evening lectures or the weekend schools, they enrol on
the understanding that they may be at a disadvantage to those students
who are able to attend.
in external mode should not, however, be confused with what may
be generally understood as correspondence or distance learning.
The LEC is unable to provide a comprehensive distance or correspondence
teaching program. All students have access to supplementary materials.
who reside outside the Sydney Metropolitan area receive certain
special borrowing privileges and other services from the University
of Sydney Law Library (see the Law
Library website. Examinations are scheduled in
NSW regional centres for external students - (see the LPAB website for details). External students can keep in touch and discuss
their studies with fellow students through the Forums for each subject.
