School of Law and Justice
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.
Juris Apocalypse Now! Law in End Times
2019 Law, Literature and the Humanities Association of Australasia's conference
2-4 December 2019
The conference will explore the intersection of legality, temporality and eschatology, the normatively uncertain and yet inherently creative space originated by the conflicting encounter between the orderly desire of law and the entropic tendency of apocalyptic narratives, with both forces cast against the backdrop of the ever-deferred notion of time itself. sljresearch.net.au/lawinendtimes
Survive, Thrive, Die. Law in End Times.
2019 Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand conference
5-7 December 2019
Social upheaval, political uncertainty, the end of history, or climate collapse: increasingly, such narratives seem to justify the state of exception in a plethora of contexts, slowly eroding the idea that social, political, and environmental stability can ever be achieved through the rule of law. The conference invites socio-legal scholars to re-imagine the question of law in the face of the ‘end times’. sljresearch.net.au/lawinendtimes
