  • A number of 200 and 300 level subjects have “First offered 2017” or “First offered 2018”recorded in the session of offer. This note means that these 200 and 300 level subjects have been reviewed and that the first time these new versions may be offered is 2017 for 200 level or 2018 for 300 level. However, some subjects are not on offer every year, therefore it is possible that the new 200 level version of the subject may therefore be run in 2018 or later, rather than 2017. Similarly for the new 300 level versions of subjects.
  • Students considering taking these subjects as electives for the Bachelor of Laws course, should speak with the Head of Students, as this may impact on your credit point accrual.

Credit Arrangements

Professional Recognition/Accreditation

The UOW Bachelor of Laws (single LLB or in combination with another degree) is accredited by the Legal Profession Admission Board (LPAB) as satisfying the academic requirements necessary for admission to practice as a lawyer. On completion of the Bachelor of Laws, a student who wishes to practice as a barrister or solicitor must also undertake some form of professional practical training, the requirements for which vary between each state and territory of Australia.

In New South Wales, a student who intends to qualify for admission to practice as a legal practitioner is required to undertake a practical legal training (PLT) course accredited by the LPAB, followed by or incorporating a period of practical experience in a law-related setting. Practical experience gained by students in LLB 397 Legal Internship may be counted towards this practical experience requirement (e.g. ANU and College of Law will recognise days completed as part of LLB 397). Graduates should check with their PLT provider.  A list of LPAB accredited PLT courses can be found on the LPAB website.

Students who intend to practice as lawyers after admission should obtain further information about restricted practice and the mandatory continuing legal education requirements from the Law Society of New South Wales. Students who intend to practice as barristers after admission will be required to read with a senior barrister for a period of time and to undertake the Bar Readers' Course before being qualified to take briefs on their own account.  Further information is available from the New South Wales Bar Association
