SULS provides the law school community with a variety events, activities and programs, including social events, educational support, mooting and skills competitions, careers events, sporting functions, and initiatives that inspire students to use the law as an instrument for social change.

The Combined Law program at the University of Sydney Law School will allow you to study the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) in conjunction with another degree. It works by spreading out the first part of the Sydney LLB over three years of a partner degree in arts, commerce, economics, engineering or science.

  • Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Laws
  • Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Laws
  • Bachelor of Economics / Bachelor of Laws
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Laws
  • Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Laws

All combinations are five years with the exception of Engineering/Law which is six years.

In the first three years (or four years for engineering) you’ll enroll with other faculties and then transfer to the Law School at the completion of your other degree to finish the last 2 years of your law studies. In addition to law core units of study, you’ll have access to a broad range of electives from areas such as contracts, constitutional law, criminal law, corporate law, health law, environmental law, media law, and international law.

Applicants must have a high school diploma and need to meet the entry requirements for the bachelor’s degree you wish to take in combination with your LLB. Please contact OzTREKK for more information.

“…the program is incredible”

So far, the program is incredible. I’ve always had a passion for law and understanding the world around me, and the University of Sydney Law School provides ample opportunity for students to gain vast amounts of knowledge, starting from day one. At the start of the program, the university languidly introduces students to the topics they will be studying in an effort to allow students to figure out how they study best and how they should set up their schedules. But it seems that... Read More

“The professors often draw from Canadian, American and New Zealand case law”

I love the diverse array of students in my classes and the amazing profs who come from all different backgrounds as well. The professors often draw from Canadian, American and New Zealand case law which makes the lectures relevant and very interesting. Also, the feedback opportunities are very helpful for first-year students. The curriculum is tough and demanding; however, the law school gives you ample tools in order to succeed. The professors are really approachable as well.
