About the program:

This joint program with the Rule of Law Institute (RoL) allows students to delve into both of their core Legal Studies units, Crime and Human Rights, in a full-day program. “Law Day Out”, as offered by RoL, focuses on the Crime core, where students visit a court, hear from a judge or legal professional, and engage in an education seminar.

Please note that “Law Day Out” can only be booked for the morning. Since the Sydney Jewish Museum is in easy walking distance from the courthouse, students will be able to attend our The Nature and Development of Human Rights program in the afternoon.

Each of the programs must be booked directly with the provider. To book your morning at Law Day Out please request a booking here.

On the day

  • We recommend arriving 15 minutes before your program begins and assembling students across the road from the museum in Green Park.
  • Please send a member of staff to the main Museum entrance to let us know you have arrived and our education team will come to greet you.
  • Students will enter via the main Museum entrance on Darlinghurst Road where security will greet you and show you where to go.
  • Note that the Museum has a substantial security presence. Your group may be asked to consent to a bag search.


  • There is an option of pre-ordering our school café lunch which can be eaten in Green Park before or after the excursion. Please click here to see the menu.

What to bring

  • Due to limited locker space, we request that students do not bring backpacks.
  • If the students plan to eat their lunch in the park after their visit, please ask them to bring very small bags so that we can put several bags in each locker.


  • Please let us know before your visit if any of your students have special needs or learning difficulties so we can plan to accommodate their needs during the visit.

Content advice

  • Note that the content covered at the Museum may be distressing to some students.
