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. All are fully articulated to enable students to transfer between courses depending on their grades. Our programmes are intellectually rigorous, relevant, and develop seven graduate attributes that form the basis of our threshold learning outcomes.

The teaching philosophy of the School of Law and Justice is based on the importance of developing scholarly communities.

The School has a very active research program which is proudly theoretical, critical, cultural and contextual in its nature and perspective. 

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.

Climate Change Statement

Following the leadership role taken by the University’s Council, the School of Law and Justice recognises and acknowledges the global ecological and climate crisis. The School accepts whole-heartedly that it has a responsibility to address that crisis by being mindful of and engaging with issues of climate mitigation, climate adaptation and climate justice in its teaching and research roles and its own practices.

Law and lawyers have a key role to play in helping society address the climate crisis. To that end, the School is committed to pursuing fair, equitable and sustainable outcomes that are consistent with the rule of law, the protection of human rights (including the right to protest) and the principles of climate justice.
