Why Postgraduate Law?
Not all law degrees are the same. Here's how UTS Law will help you stand out from the crowd.
Reasons to study postgraduate Law at UTS
Study with the elite
UTS Law is highly ranked:
- #9 law school in Australia and top 100 in the world by the QS University Rankings by Subject 2019
- "Above World Standard" in research by the Commonwealth Government's Excellence in Research for Australia initiative assessment 2015.
What you learn and who you learn from, makes a big difference.
Our teaching team is comprised of professional and academic leaders with expertise across all facets of legal practice and research. They'll help you build your theoretical knowledge, skills, practical capabilities, and professional confidence - essential tools for a legal career.
Flexible study options
Study how you want, when you want. We offer full-time or part-time study, daytime or evening lectures for core subjects, online and block study for selected electives and intensive summer sessions to help you juggle study, work and life.
Many of our lectures are recorded, so if you miss a class, you can catch up in your own time.
Facilities and location
Based in the Haymarket Campus, UTS Law is in close proximity to everything you need (the CBD, law firms, barristers' chambers; the courts and other businesses; trains and buses; and great places to eat and drink), and it's been designed with your needs in mind - think state-of-the-art study spaces, technology-enabled meeting rooms, a dedicated law librarian and simulated court facilities, to name a few.
In our new home at UTS Central, we've dedicated study hubs to our postgraduate students. Study amongst your classmates and create your own study hub.
Our close links with the profession, industry and community are also facilitated through our Centres, Institute, and Law Advisory Board, all of which are pivotal to promoting our strategic initiatives in existing and emerging fields.
UTS Law is home to acclaimed research centres:
- Australasian Legal Information Institute
- Anti-Slavery Australia
- the newly established Centre for Media Transition
There's a wealth of students-centred initiatives on offer too - join the Brennan Justice and Leadership Program, undertake applied human rights fieldwork overseas or participate in local and international internships.
