These elective courses take place during the Summer or Winter breaks between the two main semesters of study at UNSW, and each course is worth 6 units of credit towards the completion of a UNSW Law degree program.

Currently there are opportunities for UNSW Law students to participate in overseas electives in Zurich and Berkeley in Summer Semester 2017/2018. Information about each course available is listed on this page, with links to material with further information and instruction on when the course takes place, how to apply, and when to apply.
