University of Sydney (Australia) Law School Information Seminar

Are you interested in attending law school in the future?
Would you like to learn more about what it’s like to study abroad?
Do you want a glimpse of what an education in Australia is like?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, I strongly encourage you to come out to the University of Sydney Law School Information Event, hosted by the Legal Studies Society of the University of Waterloo. University of Sydney Law School is the #1 ranked law school in Australia, and #14 in the world, according to the 2018 QS World Universities Rankings for the discipline of law.

The presentation will be given by Professor Joellen Riley, the Dean of the University of Sydney Law School. More information about Professor Riley can be found here:
https://sydney.edu.au/law/about/people/profiles/joellen.riley.php

At this event, you will learn about the University of Sydney’s Law program, their admissions process, and a brief overview of the steps you need to take in order to study law abroad. This event is not only beneficial to those interested in studying law in Australia, or abroad in general, it is helpful for any prospective law school student. This event will help you get your ‘foot in the door’ in the law school admissions process. Not to mention, it is an incredible opportunity to ask Professor Riley questions, or just to simply introduce yourself. Building connections is KEY – you never know where they could lead you.

Snacks such as vegetables, fruits, and munchies will be provided for those who attend.
