Established in 1850, the University of Sydney is a public institution now catering to more than 30,000 undergraduates and about 17,000 graduate students. It consistently ranks among the best universities in Australia and the Pacific region. Its Law School is one of the top worldwide and currently ranked 13th by the QS World Universities Ranking for law.
Sydney Law School's flagship postgraduate degree is its Master of Laws (LLM). Students taking Sydney Law's LLM program are afforded flexibility as they are allowed to tailor a program to suit their professional and academic needs. Currently, there are about 20 specialist law areas to choose from for inclusion in the LLM program.
Sydney Law School offers its LLB and JD students a number of advantages over other institutions. Final year undergraduates taking a law degree may also take postgraduate-level law units and later credit them towards their future degree if they decide to take an LLM course. This can be done as long as the student meets the entry requirements for the Master of Laws program, greatly reducing the duration of any future LLM course.
Sydney Law School also offers an LLM program in Europe. It has an extensive offshore program in Europe which started in 1998. LLM courses are conducted in Cambridge London, Berlin, Amsterdam and Norway. Those enrolled on this program may choose to combine their LLM studies in Europe and in Australia, or simply complete the whole program in Europe.
