Further study opportunities

International Pathways Program

Sydney Law School’s International Pathways Program offers LLB and JD students the opportunity to undertake their final semester of study abroad, and fast-track into a postgraduate masters program at a world-leading law school.

The program allows high-achieving students to receive a Sydney LLB or JD and a masters degree at another world leading law school. We have strong global partnerships with top universities including University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, and National University of Singapore.

The program facilitates a smooth transition into further study and provides the opportunity for students seeking international education aspirations, to continue their learning journey.
