Ranked 14th leading law school in the world in the 2017 QS World University Rankings, UNSW Law graduates receive an internationally recognised qualification and the specialised skills and attributes they need to succeed in their chosen career paths.

Our wide range of program and course offerings allow our students to engage in flexible study, while still accessing the highest level of teaching quality amongst Australia’s research-intensive law schools within the Group of Eight (Go8) Universities*. You’ll be taught by leading industry professionals and researchers, and their research informs, inspires, and enlivens our teaching. 

At UNSW Law we continually review, adapt and enhance our programs to ensure that we offer students the highest quality educational experiences that reflect and anticipate the growing needs of our students, the profession and the industry.
