On Wednesday the 16thof October the University of Sydney Interfaculty Sporting competition came to a conclusion with Law crowned champions.

For the first time in history Sydney Law School will be home to the prestigious Emily Small Shield awarded to the leading faculty.

The final event for 2013 was a 5km run around campus where each participant received one point for completing the course.

Throughout the year Law excelled across various events resulting in a slim one-point lead over reigning champions, the Faculty of Education and Social Work heading into the run. Through excellent individual performances and notably the largest contingent amongst any faculty, Law was able to streak ahead and win the final event and with it be awarded the overall prize.

Sydney University Law Society (SULS) Sports Director, Daniel Dressler was elated by Law's performance.

"It was amazing to see the amount of students get involved today.

"For a faculty not known for sporting prowess we certainly showed today, and all year, that we can more than hold our own".

The final results for 2013 saw Law finish on top with 181 points, Education second on 139 and Engineering third on 96 points.
