When to apply for an extension for your Law assignment

When should I apply for an extension of the due-date for my Law assignments?

If you are unable to meet an assignment deadline for medical or other exceptional reasons you may seek an extension of time by completing and submitting a Special Consideration Application Form to your allocated course office at least 3 days before the assignment submission day.

Other than in exceptional circumstances, extensions will not be granted on the grounds of work or other extracurricular commitments. An extension will also not be granted based on your university workload.

It is expected if you work or assume responsibilities over and above you university studies you do so only after careful evaluation and with an appreciation of the time commitments required to successfully complete a law degree.

The policy on special consideration can be viewed online.
