Sydney law school students typically study for 3-years and earn a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree at the end of the program, the completion of which shows that someone has the completed the education needed to be a lawyer. There is no mandated or standardized curriculum, but most law schools provide a comprehensive overview of the field, with courses from civil procedure to property law. Students learn legal writing and are taught to conduct research in legal libraries and online. After the first one-and-a-half years, students may begin enrolling in specialized courses like environmental law or bankruptcy law. Students may also apply for externships that allow them to observe and participate in daily legal procedures. Additionally, most programs offer law clinics in a particular field, such as environmental law, in which students work with attorneys to research precedents and meet with clients.
Good Luck Sydney
