The University of Sydney Law School

Handbook 2024

The University of Sydney Law School is one of the leading law schools in the world, with an international reputation for the quality of its research. It educates lawyers for a world in which legal services are globalised and lawyers need to move across national boundaries and different legal systems. The School maintains strong links with the profession, with barristers, judges and solicitors giving lectures in core legal subjects.

Established in 1855, the Sydney Law School has made a significant contribution to the Australian judiciary, politics and public life. Many of its graduates have become leaders in their fields including prime ministers of Australia, a President of the World Bank and Chief Justices of the High Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of NSW.
