Law Summer Courses

Spend your summer wisely - alternate between relaxing at the beach and adding more credits to your degree

UNSW Law is offering you the opportunity to get aheadgo beyond and catch up in your program with a diverse range of courses available for summer school. The course content is the same as it would be in a normal semester, but the format is more intense so you can complete the course in a much shorter timeframe. 

Enrol for the opportunity to:

  • Get ahead and fast track your degree by doing an extra elective or two! Minimise your workload next semester or complete your degree earlier.
  • Catch up on your courses by using the quieter summer session to study your required courses with fewer distractions.
