Sydney Law School launches new program with Cambridge
The Sydney Law School has entered into a pathways agreement with the Faculty of Law at the University of Cambridge. The agreement will allow high achieving Sydney students to be offered early admission into the Master of Laws or the Masters degree in Corporate Law at Cambridge.
Instead of completing the final semester of law at the University of Sydney, students will commence either the LLM or the MCL. At the successful completion students will be awarded the Sydney LLB or the Sydney JD. The time to complete the program will be three and half years instead of the normal four years.
The Sydney Law School will be the first Australian law school to enter into a pathway agreement, joining Harvard Law School as the only other law school to offer this program with Cambridge.
Dean of the Sydney Law School Professor Joellen Riley said the she was delighted to form this new partnership with one of the world’s great law schools: “We are providing opportunities for our students to study law in a globalized legal world. This new partnership with Cambridge builds on our existing agreement with Oxford Law, our exclusive exchange programs and our offshore programs.”
