Based on an assessment by the Legal Profession Admission Board (LPAB) of the Supreme Court of NSW, UTS builds a tailored program of study for each student. Upon successful completion, students meet the academic requirements for admission as a lawyer of the NSW Supreme Court.
The Australian Law course from the University of Technology Sydney requires a minimum of 48 credit points of study, but total credit point requirements and subjects studied vary depending on students' individual LPAB recommendations. All subjects in this degree relate to Australian law – including contract, tort, property, ethics, constitutional and property law. In addition to meeting academic requirements, some students may also be required to complete practical legal training to qualify for admission to practise law in NSW.
Career options include lawyer in NSW within a government or corporate department, private law firm or community law centre, providing students also undertake a course in practical legal training (PLT).
