What we do

Overview

The Faculty of Law is a dynamic and innovative law school. Since its commencement in 1975 it has achieved great success for the quality of its legal education and its commitment to practice-oriented learning. In more recent years we have built a strong reputation for research excellence, engagement, and researcher development. 

The Law Faculty is proud to be a part of UTS, the #1 young university in Australia, and #14 young university in the world, according to the QS World University Rankings Top 50 Under 50. We're also Australia’s top ranked young university in the Times Higher Education 100 Universities Under 50.

As the Faculty prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2017, we look not only to the past but are focused on a rapidly changing future for law graduates.  With the recent launch of its Future of the Legal Profession series, UTS: Law is singularly positioned as a thought leader as a law school at a technology university situated in Sydney’s innovation hub.

Our Alumni are our greatest advocates, with an expanding alumni program to foster a life-long relationship with the Faculty.  We celebrate the success of our alumni and seek meaningful ways for alumni to give back and stay connected to the UTS:Law community.

With a practical orientation and future focus, UTS: Law seeks to develop Industry, Business and Community Partnerships.  We are keen to develop relationships that add value to external stakeholders, while also enhancing legal education, student opportunities, and research.

We offer a number of Professional Development opportunities, from postgraduate studies to short courses and tailor-made programs.

There are many important ways to Support UTS:Law, whether through student scholarships and prizes, or through the work of our Centres or Faculty research.  We are grateful for our donors’ support and invite you to discover the impact of their generosity.
