  • Understanding sexting

    Understanding sexting

    When new technology arrives, new habits follow. Sydney Law School has recently undertaken a survey into teen sexting, in order to understand perceptions of the practice as well as public and media discourse around it. Around 47% of those surveyed had sent or received a sext, reinforcing the need for education and legal clarification around the practice.

    "The reason I choose to enrol at the masters program at Sydney Law School was because the University offered a great variety of courses within the areas of law I wanted to specialise in. Having so many units to choose from I could design my degree to fit both my needs and my interests. I was also drawn to University of Sydney for it’s fantastic reputation and its high international ranking."

    Frances Leitch, Master of Laws

    “After having been in practice for a couple of years, I enrolled in the Master of Laws to build up my technical expertise and develop a more specialised practice. I have found it a refreshing experience to go back to university to consolidate and develop my learning by being academically engaged and challenged. There is a wide range of subjects to choose from, which are exciting, practical and engaging, including overseas courses, comparative law courses and those taught by practitioners and experts from foreign jurisdictions.”

    "As a Jamaican student, I’m from a culture that draws life lessons from adages such as ‘to he who much is given, much is expected’. Accordingly, I have been truly motivated to earn my place among the great minds which the Sydney Law School is known to produce.”
