The School of Law and Justice offers cutting edge law degrees to suit people with a range of professional backgrounds, study experiences and career aspirations. Our courses have flexible study options including online study and on-campus education, workshops and Law Placements.

Now in its 21st year, our Summer Law School at the Gold Coast and Byron Bay offers exciting and academically rigorous units delivered by internationally recognised experts.

We also offer law studies to legal practitioners trained outside of Australia, for admission purposes in New South Wales.


An award of Honours signals that a student has achieved high order legal research competencies and a high standard of academic excellence in their LLB degree.

Entry to the LLB Honours program is open only to students who attain excellence in their LLB studies and are close to the completion of their degree. The Honours program involves the completion of two specific units of study which together require the preparation of a sound research methodology and proposal to support the completion of a research thesis.
