Bar Exam in Australia


I am hoping someone could provide me with some useful insights on this, especially those who have had personal experience.

As mentioned, I graduated with a UOL LLB with 2:2, I have continued my postgraduate studies in law with the same university.

I have since attained postgraduate cert in law with distinction and currently pursuing my postgraduate dip in law and master of laws.
Although I qualify directly for the LLM programme, the university is giving us a benefit of the doubt in awarding us with the other 2 additional certs as well, which are actually more for those who do it stage by stage as they do not qualify for the LLM directly.

I would be specialising in commercial and corporate law. For my postgrad cert in law, I have chosen to specialise in family law where I studied human rights of women.

Below are my other subjects :

Taken :

Corporate finance and management issues in company law
section a and b (taken and passed)

will be taking :

Foundational issues in constitutional issues in company law
section a, b, c and d

Regulation and infrastructure of international commercial arbitration
section a, b c and d.

Thus, I hope to be graduating and awarded with :

Postgraduate Certificate in Law (Family Law)
Postgraduate Diploma in Law (International Business Law)
Master of Laws (Commercial and Corporate Law)

I am still awaiting UOL's reply on whether I can specialise in 2 different areas for the last two certs since i will be taking the same specialisation group subjects for these 2 specialisations.
it would seem more comprehensive and extension to specialise in so many areas, right? :)

hence, i was wondering, with these qualifications where I will be expected to graduate with next yr 2014 with my LLM, is it advisable that i send in my academic qualifications and get them assessed by the australia bar authority? would these qualify me for more exemptions?

previously i had gotten my llb to be accessed and i was informed that I am required to undertake these 12 additional subjects :

Criminal Law and Procedure
Australian Constitutional Law
Commerical Transactions
Administrative Law
Law of Associations
Evidence
Taxation and Revenue Law
Succession
Conveyancing
Practice and Procedure
Legal Ethics

AND

One of the following electives - excludes Family Law (which I have yet to decide and I would need to know if your University offers any of these) :


Insolvency

Conflict of Laws

Local Government and Planning

Industrial Law

Intellectual Property Law

Public International Law

Competition and Consumer Law

Understanding Legal Language and Legislation

i am hoping that my postgrad qualifications would allow for more exemptions because having to study another 12 subjects seem quite ridiculous!

can anyone help me here?

thanks!! appreciate lots.
