Law & Technology

Be Inspired! 

Law is a rewarding yet often difficult career path, with lawyers often being the object of numerous stereotypes, tropes and clichés. Regardless, law is a necessary part of the way our society functions at almost every level (even areas we would not think to be related to law). As such Top's Sydney City School of Law sees an important facet of student education to be the feeding of their inspiration.

A Career is not just a series of jobs that you meander into, but rather a series of launching pad stages in a glorious journey to succeed and excel through life. To that end, we provide and recommend many resources to our students. From content provided in lectures to content in our guides and blogs, our goal is to feed student interest and desire as much as possible to succeed down their chosen path. 

Below is a sampling of our recommended resources to inspire you to be a passionate legal professional:
