An international leader in legal education

The Sydney Law School is one of the world’s leading law schools, with a global ranking of 11 in the QS World Universities Rankings for the discipline of law.
Sydney Law School is Australia’s first. Since its inception, it has been at the forefront of developments associated with both the teaching and research of law. The Sydney Juris Doctor (JD) is the University of Sydney’s graduate-entry law degree. It provides a world-class legal education that prepares students for the global and international environment in which they will provide legal advice. Sydney’s law students receive an education that equips them for the practice of law in a global, transnational and international marketplace for legal services.
I chose Sydney Law School mainly due to its international focus and specialization in Maritime (Admiralty) Law. The school is also ranked very highly around the world and is one of the top law schools internationally! The Sydney JD is a tough program; however, the structure gives you the skills and discipline you need to succeed in the profession. The professors often draw on cases from other jurisdictions for comparison and to provide a global education.  OzTREKK student Kate Reagh, Sydney Juris Doctor (JD). Read her story!
