WELCOME TO THE LAW EXTENSION COMMITTEE

DIPLOMA IN LAW COURSE

 

Prospective students should visit the future students section for more information about the Diploma in Law program and visit the LPAB website for information on how to register as a Student-at-Law.

The Law Extension Committee (LEC) was established by the Senate of the University of Sydney in 1964. The LEC's function is to provide legal education for students undertaking the NSW LPAB Diploma in Law examinations.

The LEC is appointed by the University Senate and comprises members and nominees proposed by the University, the Chief Justice of New South Wales, The NSW Bar Association and Law Society, and the Faculty of Law. Lectures are given by practitioners and university teachers. Weekend Schools are offered each semester for external students.

The aim of the LEC is to provide affordable and accessible legal education in support of the LPAB Diploma in Law course. The program is not able to offer all the services and individual attention of a comprehensive campus, however through our webcampus we endeavour to provide additional support and materials to aid students in their studies. This course requires students to manage their time efficiently to meet all requirements and to be able to work independently. There is a strong orientation towards education for legal practice.

LEC WEBCAMPUS

The LEC has expanded all of its WEBCAMPUS facilities and all students enrolled in the course are given access to online registration, change of details, subject guides, notes and supplementary materials, subject discussion forum, secure assignment lodgement and receipting, assignment processing and results screen. This facility is constantly growing as we expand our services.

SUCCESSION TUTORIAL FRIDAY 27 MAY

As stated in the subject guide for Succession, this semester the LEC is intending to offer non-compulsory Succession tutorials. The first tutorial will be held from 12 noon to 4 pm on Friday 27 May, at the start of Weekend School 1, in New Law School Annexe Seminar Room 446. The lecturer will be Mr Andrew Stevens, Barrister. No second tutorial has been arranged at this stage.

Succession students intending to participate in the tutorial on Friday 27 May should download a copy of the Succession Law Tutorial Question Booklet that is now available in the Course Materials section of the Webcampus and prepare answers to the questions for discussion in the tutorial.

It is not necessary for students to submit an expression of interest form or notify us of their intention to attend the tutorial on 27 May. The seminar room should be large enough to seat any Succession student who would like to participate.

LPAB CONFIRMATION OF ENROLMENT

Would students please note that registering online with the LEC is not a confirmation of their enrolment with the LPAB. If students have not received their enrolment confirmation letter within 28 days of the last day of enrolment, they should contact the LPAB's Student Services Officer.

The LEC online registration process for the current session allows the LPAB's students to gain access to their course materials (where applicable) by the commencement of lectures. A successful online registration with the LEC does not mean a student's enrolment application has been processed and accepted by the LPAB.

CHANGE OF VENUE FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY EVENING LECTURE SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY 23 MAY

Therefore, if you were intending to attend the lecture on 23 May, would you please go to Castlereagh Seminar Room 1804, which is on Level 18 of 133 Castlereagh Street, between Market and Park Streets, near David Jones’ Market Street store.

LEC WEBCAMPUS ONLINE REGISTRATION - PLEASE REGISTER WITH THE LEC WITHOUT WAITING FOR ONLINE ENROLMENT WITH THE LPAB TO COMMENCE

Despite the delay in the introduction of the LPAB's new online enrolment process, which has meant that students will not be able to enrol with the LPAB for the Winter 2016 Semester until Thursday 28 April 2016, students should not postpone their online registration with the Law Extension Committee. Please register with us as soon as possible. Where the registration form asks for the date on which the enrolment was lodged with the LPAB, you may enter 28 April 2016.

No further changes to the calendar for the Winter 2016 session are anticipated, so the first Legal Institutions class is still scheduled for Wednesday 4 May, the LEC Orientation for Friday 6 May and the Legal Institutions Intensive Introductory Classes for Saturday 7 May and Sunday 8 May. Therefore it is particularly important that Legal Institutions students register with us without delay, so that they have access to the slides for those lectures and can be allocated to a group for the legal research workshop at the introductory classes.

WINTER SESSION 2016 - LEC WEBCAMPUS ONLINE REGISTRATIONS

ALL students should register online between Thursday 21 April and Friday 29 April 2016 (even if you have an application pending with the LPAB). Registering during that period ensures that you have access to the LEC Webcampus prior to the commencement of lectures.

Subject guides can also be accessed, together with additional materials (if available), via the Webcampus upon successful completion of the online registration form. Please note that you will not have immediate access to the Webcampus once you have registered.

The enrolment packages were posted to students earlier this month.
