The Western Sydney University School of Law strongly supports the right of all people to achieve their potential and career objectives. The School is committed to making reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, placements and other activities to address the impact of students' disabilities so that they are able to participate in their course without unnecessary disadvantage.
The study of law in New South Wales is governed by the requirements of the Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules 2015 (NSW). These rules require a minimum of the equivalent three years full time academic study. Further, the alternate LLB units have learning outcomes which state the academic content and knowledge requirements that a student must acquire in order to pass the unit.
The basic requirement is set out in the Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules 2015 (NSW)(opens in a new window). The learning outcomes for each LLB alternate unit are described in the unit template and learning guide for the particular unit.
To support potential and current students' decision making, a series of inherent requirement statements has been developed. These statements specify the course requirements of the undergraduate LLB courses for student admission and progression.
How to read the inherent requirement statements
If you are intending to enrol in an undergraduate Law course at the School of Law, you should look at these Inherent Requirement statements and think about whether you may experience challenges in meeting these requirements.
If you think you may experience challenges related to your disability, chronic health condition or any other reason, you should discuss your concerns with a campus Disability Advisor or the School of Law staff, such as the Director of Academic Programs, Academic Course Advisor or School Disability
Coordinator. These staff can work collaboratively with you to determine reasonable adjustments to assist you to meet the Inherent Requirements. In the case where it is determined that Inherent Requirements cannot be met with reasonable adjustments, the University staff can provide guidance regarding
other study options.
These inherent requirements should be read in conjunction with other course information and publications such as background information on the Legal Profession Admission Board (opens in a new window) as well as information on Requirements for Admission as a Lawyer (opens in a new window).
Each inherent requirement is made up of the following five levels:
- Level 1 - introduction to the inherent requirement
- Level 2 - description of what the inherent requirement is
- Level 3 - explanation of why this is an inherent requirement of the course
- Level 4 - the nature of any adjustments that may be made to allow you to meet the requirement
- Level 5 - examples of things you must be able to do to show you've met the requirement
