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.

3 Aug 2015  

CHANGE OF VENUE FOR CONVEYANCING LECTURES TONIGHT AND 10 AUGUST

Would students please note that Conveyancing evening lectures will not be returning to the Carslaw Building this evening as previously notified. Tonight's lecture (3 August) and next Monday's lecture (10 August) will be held in New Law School Seminar Room 115 instead.

     
30 Jul 2015  

CANCELLATION OF TONIGHT'S LAW OF ASSOCIATIONS LECTURE

We have just been informed that Mr Zammit will not be able to give the Law of Associations lecture tonight (30 July) due to illness and the lecture will therefore have to be cancelled. Mr Zammit is expecting to be able to cover all remaining topics in the final two lectures, so at this stage it is not anticipated that an extra lecture will be arranged.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

     
6 Jul 2015  

PLEASE CHECK YOUR SUBJECT GUIDES FOR EVENING LECTURE VENUES FOR SECOND HALF OF SEMESTER

Would you please ensure that you check your subject guides for information about your evening lecture venues for the second half of the semester, as these may be different from those in the first half. Unfortunately the venues for Australian Constitutional Law and Local Government and Planning had not been confirmed when we released those subject guides. Please note that Australian Constitutional Law evening lectures will be held in Carslaw Lecture Theatre 159 for the second half of the semester and Local Government and Planning evening lectures will be held in Mills Tutorial Room 205, as they were in the first half of semester.

     
6 Jul 2015  

VENUES FOR SECOND HALF OF SEMESTER CAN BE FOUND HERE.

     
24 Jun 2015  

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.

     
29 May 2015  

RELOCATION OF LAW EXTENSION COMMITTEE'S OFFICES AND CHANGE OF TELEPHONE NUMBER

As the building at 175 Phillip Street, Sydney, has now been sold, the LEC has relocated today to the following address:

Suite 401, Level 4, 5 Elizabeth Street, Sydney, NSW 2000.

Our new telephone number is 02 9231 3111 and calls to our previous numbers will be diverted to that number. Our new fax number is 02 9231 3277. Email addresses are unaltered.

     
1 May 2015  

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.

     
26 Mar 2015  

LEC SECOND-HAND TEXT BULLETIN BOARD

Students may have noticed that we have removed the link to the LEC Second-hand Text Bulletin Board which could previously be found on the "Second-hand Texts" page under "Student Services" on our website. This was necessary because we have been unable to gain access to administer the bulletin board and therefore unable to assist students who have wanted to remove personal details posted by them. We would apologise to students who have only recently posted messages on the board and were waiting for a response.

     
16 May 2013  

CAMPUS WiFi

The University of Sydney ICT has advised that any LPAB students unable to access the UniSydney wireless network should contact the ICT Help Desk directly on 9351 6000. The Help Desk will reset your password over the phone so that WiFi is enabled.

     
14 March 2012   LEC CODE OF CONDUCT

The Course Information Handbook in recent years has included a section “Conduct, Character and the Study of Law”. Principles of behavior appropriate to the environments in which our program is offered have been gathered into one foundation document. You are welcome to make suggestions. It will be part of the obligations of all involved with the LEC program to become familiar with, and abide by, the Code. A copy of the document is available on the Ongoing Message Board in the General LEC Notices section.
