New Venues for Sydney's Europe Programme
The Sydney Law School is home to Australia’s leading postgraduate programme in law. Since 1998, the Law School has organized postgraduate law study in Germany and the United Kingdom. From 2008, the Programme venues will include Robinson College, Cambridge, Bentham House, University College London and the Walter Hallstein Institute, Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany.
Students are offered a range of courses taught by specialist academics from Sydney Law School and from partnering international faculty. It is possible for students to combine study in Germany with study in Australia, or to finish the entire programme in Germany. This unique initiative abroad provides an opportunity for students of law to obtain a LLM with an emphasis on comparative, commercial and international law.
The programme is well designed for busy lawyers who wish to undertake each unit in a concentrated period of time. Several units are offered every year in Germany and in the UK, with a rolling program of different offerings over three years. German students are also welcome to attend our courses in Shanghai or the wide range of units on offer in Sydney.
The Sydney Law School in Europe program delivers high quality, strongly comparative and accessible units of study. It offers comprehensive teaching of Common Law, Commercial Law, Corporate, Securities & Finance Law, International Law, Intellectual Property, Jurisprudence, Taxation and a variety of other areas. It permits students to tailor study in Australia and in Europe to meet their speicific needs. Classes are open to a maximum of 20 students, to allow not only in depth analysis and discussion but also to maximise the opportunity for students to get to know other students from various legal occupations, regions and countries.
Students wishing to complete their degree more quickly may need to come to Sydney to finish their studies. International students intending to study in Sydney on a student visa will need to enrol on a full-time basis (four units of study per semester).
