Faculty of Law

Leading Tomorrow

The Faculty of Law takes pride in its high quality education and training programmes aimed at developing legal professionals committed to the cause of justice.

Graduates are equipped not only to find and to apply the relevant law to the facts before them, but also to make meaningful contributions to critical debates surrounding legal reform. The quality of this training has led to our graduates enjoying an excellent reputation in the profession, as well as with the Department of Justice and other employers. Staff members are frequently involved in the world beyond the campus by sitting as assessors, writing legal opinions on instruction from attorneys, acting as legal consultants, presiding in the Small Claims Court and providing services to the community through facilities such as the Faculty’s Law Clinic, the Street Law Programme, the Institute for Law in Action (ILA) and the Refugee Rights Centre.
