Doing LLM in Sydney


I am a LLB Holder from University of the South Pacific in Fiji from 2004. Since 2005 I have been admitted to the Fiji High Court Bar and practising as a Barrister and Solicitor till date. I now intend to do my LLM in Sydney. Any idea what would be my requirements? I have done some online research for admission, but it has nothing specific and the emails that I have sent to some universities, I have had not much success. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I am a domestic student who recently completed a LLM in Sydney. I graduated with a second class honours in my LLB and at the time of my application only had 1 year work experience. I applied to do a general LLM and was accepted. Many in my class were fresh LLB graduates with almost no employment background. So it seems that the requirements were not too demanding. Unlike US applications, I did not need to submit recommendation letters or personal statements. Keep in mind the following however:

- I was a domestic student - there may be higher requirements for international students;
- I was not requesting financial aid;
- I did not intend to use my LLM to assist in me being a practical lawyer or barrister in Australia. If you wish to do so, you may need to contact the law society or bar association of NSW to enquire whether you are qualified in Australia.

Hope that helps.
