School of Law and Justice

The School of Law and Justice provides legal education for future lawyers and paralegals in a supportive, scholarly environment. We offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

All of our courses promote the rule of law, the highest standards of ethical conduct, professional responsibility and community engagement.

The School also has strong ties with the legal profession and the community and is committed to enhancing the cultural, social, economic and intellectual development of our region.
