23 September 2010

Sydney Law School is pleased to announce its Postgraduate Program for 2011.

It continues to offer one of Australia's largest postgraduate programs in law, with over 160 units of study scheduled to be taught in 2011.

80 per cent of these units of study are set to be delivered in the popular intensive format, where units can be completed in four to five days, either in a block or consecutive format.

For the third successive year, the launch of Sydney Law School's Postgraduate Program coincides with the publication of a comprehensive Postgraduate Guide and enhanced online presentation of its units.

In addition, Sydney Law School will offer over 30 new units of study.

The new units include:

While Sydney Law School will continue to teach some of its semester length units of study at its former premises in the Sydney CBD, the majority of its units, both intensive and semester length, will be taught at the Law School Building on the University of Sydney's main campus.
