As the only law school in New South Wales located in the heart of Sydney, the UTS Faculty of Law has outstanding links with the community and the legal profession in the city. Our graduates find themselves not only practising law in top-tier law firms but also forging careers in all the various contexts, both local and international, for which a legal education equips you.

Study in the heart of Sydney
Only a ten minutes' walk from Central station, we are close to the central business and legal districts and easily accessible by bus, train and light rail.
It can be challenging to compete with the demands of work, life and uni. Study your degree in either full-time or part-time mode, depending on your chosen course. Daytime lectures in core subjects are repeated in the evening (and often recorded or podcasted), and you can also attend our intensive Summer session to fast track elective subjects.
At the forefront of legal education
We're leading the way with Australia's first dispute resolution program, the country's first intellectual program to fulfill registration as a registered trademark or patent attorney, Sydney's first Juris Doctor and the first university to offer an accredited practical legal training (PLT) program in Sydney.
In 2018, the Faculty of Law introduced the Legal Futures and Technology major part of the Bachelor of Laws and combined degrees. Unique to UTS, this specialisation aims to prepare graduates for careers that require a capacity to work with technology and its impact, innovation and new law as a result of unprecedented change and disruptive technologies.
