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.

Library Access

The Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library and Fisher Library will close at 5pm on Friday 16th December 2016 and reopen at 9am on Tuesday 3rd January 2017. There will be no access (this also means no 24/7 access) to the Law Library or Fisher Library during the closedown period.

Borrowing

No books will have a due date that falls during the closedown period. This includes any books that are recalled.

Any book borrowed from Saturday 10th December onwards will not be due back until after the closedown period even if it is recalled (this obviously excludes 2 Hour items).

If any book currently checked out to you is recalled from Saturday 10th December onwards it will not be due back until after the closedown period.

Distance students should ensure that all book requests are submitted well before the closedown period to ensure the best possible chance of the requested book being available and able to be posted to you prior to the closedown period.

LIBRARY 24 HOUR SPACES - ACCESS FOR LPAB STUDENTS

The Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library and Fisher Library are open 24/7.


The Library still has advertised Information Desk hours – see the drop down menu for each Library at https://library.sydney.edu.au/libraries/locations.html. Outside those hours both the Law Library and Fisher Library are staffed by security personnel only.


LPAB Student / Library cards are not currently enabled with swipe card access. Negotiations between different stakeholders at the University to rectify this are ongoing and you will be notified as soon as this is resolved. However, LPAB students are still able to access the Law Library and Fisher Library 24/7.


The current arrangements for LPAB students and 24/7 access, until further notice, is as follows:
- During Information Desk hours you can enter the Law Library directly as normal.
- Access to and from the Law Library and Fisher Library outside Information Desk hours is via the front entrance to Fisher Library only, with the Law Library being accessible via the internal tunnel on Level 1 of Fisher Library.
- A security guard is stationed inside the entrance to Fisher Library at all times. Just attract the attention of the security guard, show your student ID / Library card through the glass doors and the door to Fisher Library will be opened for you.
- The security guards will be doing ID checks throughout the night so make sure you have your card with you at all times.
- Exiting both Libraries after Information Desk hours is also via the main Fisher Library entrance.  


Full details about 24/7 services at the Law Library and Fisher Library can be found here: https://news.library.usyd.edu.au/fisher-and-law-libraries-go-247/.
If you have any questions at all, or have any difficulties accessing the Library via the above arrangements, please contact Patrick O’Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian directly at patrick.omara@sydney.edu.au. Please do not direct your enquiry to the Law Extension Committee.
