According to UTS:Law Faculty rules, assignments (assessment items) received via fax, email or DX will not be accepted. Assignments (assessment items) are to be submitted in the Assignment Box located in the Law Reception area on Level 3 of the Faculty of Law.
Under no circumstances will unmarked assignments be handed back to students once they are submitted. Instead, students are recommended to re-submit another copy of their assignment with the relevant changes and a note to their lecturer.
Instructions on submitting assignments (assessment items):
1. You must attach a UTS:Law Assignment Cover Sheet to the front page of your assignment (hard copies are available at the Law Reception).
- Make sure you complete the entire form and sign the 'Acknowledgment of Original Work' section.
- Do not detach either half of the form. The bottom half is retained as proof of assignment lodgement within the Law Reception.
- Do not submit assignments in plastic folders or covers.
- The Law reception staff cannot distribute assignments, nor can lecturers mark them if the necessary details are not fully completed on the form.
2. All assignments (assessment items) must be lodged through the Assignment Box on Level 3 before 6:00pm on the due date (during Faculty teaching weeks) or before 5.00pm (during Faculty non-teaching weeks and Summer session) for receipt on that day. Law Reception staff will not falsify submission dates.
Online Assignment Submissions
