Sydney Law School students excel in Tokyo moot

Team Australia, a group of law students from across six Australian universities, including Sydney Law School, have won the inaugural Chartered Institute of Arbitrators’ Prize for Best Performance in the English-language Arbitration round and landed second overall in the 2017 Intercollegiate Negotiation and Arbitration Competition in Tokyo.

The Australian Network for Japanese Law, a unique cross-institutional initiative including Sydney Law as a core member and Professor Luke Nottage as founding co-director, has supported Team Australia law students competing in the innovative Intercollegiate Negotiation and Arbitration Competition in Tokyo since 2005.

Hundreds of students from around 30 universities across Japan and the Asia-Pacific competed the competition held Nov. 18–19, comprising arbitration and negotiation days, with English and Japanese language divisions in each. The arbitration round concerned the mooting of a dispute governed by the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts. The negotiation round required teams to reach a deal to bring an international joint venture to fruition, teaching and testing somewhat different skills that are also essential for legal advisors in the 21st century.

Team Australia’s success is the culmination of over three months of intensive preparations by the group of law students from the University of Sydney, the Australian National University (ANJeL member), Monash University, the University of the Sunshine Coast, and the University of Western Australia. These students made up four sub-teams, competing in the Japanese language division and three in the English language division.

Sydney Law School lecturer discusses misconceptions about crime

Punishment isn’t always the answer to reduce crime.

Sydney Law School lecturer discusses misconceptions about crime

Host Chris Neff – Open for Discussion podcast

How do we encourage people not to break the law? Most times we think of crime, it’s after the fact. But what if through certain measures we could stop a crime before it happens? No, it’s not a Tom Cruise movie, simply the idea that through certain measures, the opportunity for crime may be removed.

Dr Garner Clancey from Sydney Law School joined Open for Discussion to chat crime statistics and the strategies used today to prevent crimes. Dr Garner Clancey, a Senior Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Sydney Law School, is an expert in crime prevention and statistics and over the past 25 years has worked with NSW Police, the Department of Juvenile Justice and other government organisations on a number of crime prevention strategies.

Here, Dr Clancey shares four misconceptions about crime:

Myth 1: The crime rate is going up

We’re not in the grips of a crime wave. In fact, the overall crime rate in NSW has been declining since the turn of the millennium. In the UK the crime rate began declining around 1995, while in the US it began to fall in 1990, 1991.

And the falls have been quite dramatic. For example, in the year 2000 there were approximately 82,000 incidents of burglary per year in NSW, while last year it was only 32,000. And the murder rate in the state is the lowest it’s been in 40 years.

Problem is, no one can explain the major drop—it’s criminology’s “dirty little secret!

Myth 2: Closed circuit television is a good prevention tool

CCTV can be successful in preventing thefts from shops; however, the data shows that for public places it’s really not all that useful.

People may not know the cameras are there, especially if they’re intoxicated, so continue with the behaviour anyway. And those watching the cameras may not realise anything criminal is going on so can’t do anything to stop the crime.

Some cameras aren’t even monitored, so are only helpful for identification once a crime has been committed.

Myth 3: Putting people in prison stops crime

Prison is a big investment without a great return.

It costs the state approximately $200 a day to incarcerate an adult in NSW, while it costs nearly $1,000 a day to incarcerate a juvenile. It’s further reported that nearly half of those leaving prison today in NSW will return to prison within two years.

Myth 4: All crimes are reported equally

For those crimes that people need to report for insurance reasons, such as car theft or house break ins, we know the statistics are fairly accurate—not much goes unreported. Unfortunately, the opposite is true for sexual assault and domestic violence. This means that the recent rise in those crimes is only telling part of the story.

Program: Juris Doctor (JD)
Location: Sydney, New South Wales

Application deadline: It is recommended that candidates apply a minimum of three months prior to the program start date.

To be eligible to apply, you must have the following:

  • Completed an undergraduate degree
  • Achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average (cGPA) of at least 3.0/4.0

OzTREKK recommends that you apply for this program if you have achieved a minimum cGPA of 3.0/4.0. Please note that this is a minimum average to be eligible to apply and that your application outcome will be determined by the Sydney Law School. Successful applicants who receive an offer of admission to the Sydney JD normally achieve a minimum grade point average of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale. As a Canadian, please remember there is no standardized GPA scale used by Canadian universities. A 2.8 is normally a B, but it is difficult to pinpoint the minimum percentage grade required for entry into this program, as grading systems differ at post-secondary institutions in Canada.

In addition to your undergraduate university transcripts, you may also submit your high school transcript for assessment. If you submit both your undergraduate and your high school transcripts for assessment, you will be assessed on the basis of 25% recognized high school qualification + 75% tertiary grade point average for a completed degree.

OzTREKK also recommends that you submit a resume and/or personal statement along with your application.

University of Sydney Law School Juris Doctor FAQs

What is the difference between the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and the Juris Doctor (JD) offered at the University of Sydney?

University of Sydney Law School Juris Doctor FAQs

Learn more about studying at Sydney Law School

Both the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and the Juris Doctor (JD) are law degrees which upon their completion enable you to apply in your jurisdiction to practice as a lawyer. The main difference between the two law degrees is that the LLB is intended for those applicants who have not completed an undergraduate university degree. Their highest level of qualification is high school.

The JD is simply the graduate-entry version of the LLB. You must have completed an undergraduate degree before you can commence the JD. If you have not completed an undergraduate degree, then you apply to the LLB.

When can I commence my studies in the JD program at Sydney Uni?

The Juris Doctor  program commences in the first semester of each year, which is in late February/early March.

Do I need to sit the LSAT to apply to Sydney Law School?

No, the LSAT is not a requirement and is not assessed. Even if you have completed the LSAT, it will not be assessed as part of the application process.

Which electives do I study?

You will have a wide range of electives from which to choose. There will be a strong emphasis on international law and you may choose some units from the Sydney Law School‘s extensive postgraduate coursework units of study. You will complete 7 electives and will be able to choose from 3 tables of electives.

The Sydney Law School is one of the world’s leading law schools, with a global ranking of 11 in the QS World Universities Rankings for the discipline of law.

Sydney Law School is Australia’s first. Since its inception, it has been at the forefront of developments associated with both the teaching and research of law.

It provides a world-class legal education that prepares students for the global and international environment in which they will provide legal advice.

I chose Sydney Law School mainly due to its international focus and specialization in Maritime (Admiralty) Law. The school is also ranked very highly around the world and is one of the top law schools internationally! The Sydney JD is a tough program; however, the structure gives you the skills and discipline you need to succeed in the profession.

Outstanding achievement by Sydney Law School student at Cambridge

Mitchell Cleaver is the first Sydney Law School student to receive a dual degree from one of the UK’s most prestigious law schools.

Final year Arts/Law student Mitchell has achieved First Class Honours and Fourth in the order of merit for the Master of Laws (LLM) at the University of Cambridge.

Mitchell is the first Sydney Law School student to join the Cambridge Pathways Program.

“It is wonderful that our first Cambridge Pathways student has returned home with such an outstanding result,” said Sydney Law School Dean Professor Joellen Riley.

“His achievement sets the bar very high for our future students in the program.”

Commenting on his achievement, Mitchell said that while the Pathways Program may seem daunting, this should not dissuade students from applying.

“If anything, having been in full-time education immediately prior to commencing the course can be a real advantage,” he said.

“Although the courses are demanding, they are also incredibly rewarding. Students are encouraged to focus on what they consider to be fascinating, challenging or controversial. There is a lot of scope for independent research.”

Mitchell said that one of the most exciting aspects of his time at Cambridge was participating in college life.

“The college system means that one is living and working alongside students from a large number of disciplines, all of whom share a similar love of learning. The sense of community is very strong,” he said.

Outside of his studies, Mitchell played on the hockey team at Jesus College and served as a student representative to the law faculty.

“Cambridge is a fantastic place to study and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to spend a year here.”

The Pathways Program with Oxford and Cambridge allows high-achieving students to receive a Sydney LLB or a Sydney JD as well as an Oxford Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) or Master of Law and Finance (MLF), or a Cambridge Master of Laws (LLM) or Masters in Corporate Law (MCL).

Instead of completing the final semester of their degree in Sydney, students commence their studies in the UK in late September, after successful completion of their second-last semester in Sydney.

Admission is competitive and is assessed by the overseas law school.

Sydney leading legal expert named Harvard Chair in Australian Studies

The University of Sydney and Harvard University have announced the appointment of Professor Ben Saul to the Gough Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser Chair in Australian Studies for the 2017–2018 academic year.

Professor Saul is a practising barrister and leading global legal expert in public international law, with a special focus on fields including terrorism, human rights, armed conflict, and the United Nations. Professor Saul was recently appointed Challis Chair of International Law at the University of Sydney, Australia’s – and one of the world’s – oldest professorships in international law.

“I am honoured that Harvard has invited me to spend a year researching and teaching on terrorism, human rights and international law. Harvard is the world’s preeminent university, with a rich tradition of legal scholarship addressing the common global challenges faced by Australia and the United States,” said Professor Saul.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for me to work alongside Harvard’s renowned legal scholars and learn from Harvard’s close links to US government lawmaking.

“It is also a privilege to follow in the footsteps of my Sydney colleague Professor Helen Irving, as the second legal academic to ever hold the Chair in 40 years.”

First legal scholar named Chair since 2006

At Harvard Law School, Professor Saul will research how international law can more effectively suppress terrorism and control excessive counter-terrorism. He will also give a series of public lectures and work on a forthcoming book about terrorist groups’ attitudes to basic humanitarian rules in war, based on field interviews with armed groups in numerous countries.

“It has been a decade since a legal scholar has been appointed to the Harvard Chair of Australian Studies,” said Professor Nicholas Jose, Chair of the Australian Advisory Committee.

“Ben Saul is one of Australia’s most distinguished thinkers in the field of international law. His work engages with some of the most challenging issues of our time. We are delighted to see him appointed to this prestigious position.

“He will bring an Australian perspective to his teaching at Harvard, including a case study of Australia’s counter-terrorism laws, considered in a comparative and global context,” said Professor Jose.

Sydney’s Harvard Chair history

The visiting professorship was established at Harvard in 1976, as a result of a gift from the Australian government to mark the bicentennial of the United States. Professor Saul is the sixth University of Sydney academic to hold the annual Chair in its 40-year history.

Previously, the former chancellor of the University of Sydney, the late Dame Leonie Kramer AC DBE, sociologist Professor Raewyn Connell, the now Cambridge-based historian Professor Alison Bashford, and constitutional law expert Professor Helen Irving have held the visiting professorship.

Professor Penny Russell, the university’s Bicentennial Professor of Australian History, is joint Chair for the 2016-2017 academic year, with Professor John Gascoigne, Scientia Professor in the School of Humanities and Languages at the University of New South Wales.
