Postgraduate Law @ Sydney - 2009 Program

22 September 2008



Sydney Law School announces the launch of its 2009 Postgraduate Program, with a  new comprehensive Postgraduate Guide alongside  enhanced online presentation of its subjects.


Sydney Law School is set to offer Australia's largest postgraduate program in law for 2009, with 161 units of study scheduled to be taught.


70% of these units of study will be delivered in the popular intensive format, where units can be completed in four to five days, either in a block or consecutive format.


In addition, Sydney Law School will offer 31 new units of study, a 25% increase over 2008.


The new units include:



Sydney Law School will split delivery of these units of study between its New Law Building and a Sydney CBD venue.


While the majority of units of study will be taught at the New Law Building, many units of study of specific relevance to the profession and corporate sector will be delivered at a Sydney CBD location.


Sydney Law School will also deliver two new offshore units in Japan - Japanese Law and  Japanese Law & the Economy - taught in Kyoto and Tokyo respectively.


These units are offered in addition to the  Sydney Law School in Europe program and the Law School's two offshore units in China -  Chinese Laws & Chinese Legal Systems and  Sustainable Development Law in China.


Sydney Law School delivers its  Sydney LLM - Master of Laws (LLM) - alongside its specialist postgraduate coursework programs,  with a number of diverse qualifications open to Non-Lawyers.


It also has Australia's largest number of postgraduate research students in law and was the first Australian law school to introduce a Doctor of Juridical Studies (SJD), a unique qualification that permits the completion of a 75,000 word thesis alongside units in coursework.


Interested applicants are encouraged to attend the annual  Postgraduate Information Evening which takes place tomorrow evening - Tuesday, 23rd September 2008 between 5:30pm and 7:00pm.
