About the Brennan Program
The Brennan Justice and Leadership Program was introduced in 2011 as a joint initiative of the UTS Faculty of Law and the UTS Law Students’ Society. It is named for Sir Gerard Brennan AC KBE, former Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia and UTS Chancellor (1999-2005). His life and career exemplify the qualities of professional leadership, service and excellence that the Program seeks to nurture.
The Brennan Program is a free, voluntary program for UTS Law students that seeks to strengthen the justice consciousness, idealism and sense of service that they bring to their studies and later professional work. With nearly 600 students in its inaugural year of 2011, and over 1,600 students currently registered, the program is indicative of UTS Law students’ interest in social justice and their desire to go beyond the academic curriculum.
The two main components of the program are:
- Reflections on Justice in which students engage with the themes of justice and its social contexts through lectures and discussion groups; and
- Leadership Through Service where students contribute voluntary service (both legal and non-legal in nature) over the course of their studies.
In order to complete the program and qualify for the Brennan Justice and Leadership Award, students must earn 100 Reflection points and Leadership Through Service hours according to the pro-rata allocation available in the Brennan Program Handbook.
Law students participating in the Beyond UTS International Leadership Development (BUILD), the UTS: SOUL Awardor the UTS Accomplish Award programs can receive dual recognition for some activities.
