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.

RESCHEDULING OF INDUSTRIAL LAW LECTURES

Please note that these lectures will be held on Tuesday 3 February and Tuesday 10 February. The venue for those lectures will be confirmed as soon as possible.

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 assignments and course materials (where available) 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.

SCAM ALERT

We have been informed that students at the UTS and UNSW have reported dubious Facebook approaches by a person purporting to offer jobs for students.

One ploy seems to be a request for money in return for arranging an interview. Another involves an advertisement for a non-existent legal research position.

Students are being advised to monitor their social media sites carefully to ensure that they are not vulnerable to exploitation.

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.
