We prioritise experiential learning and our degrees involve learning inside and outside the classroom. We are proud to offer more clinics and internships than any other Australian law school. Every undergraduate and Juris Doctor (JD) student spends time at our on-site community legal centre, Kingsford Legal Centre (KLC), and one in two of our students completes part of their degree overseas.

We scored 93.7 (out of 100) in the Employer Reputation category of the QS World University Rankings, placing us 6th in the world in this category.

UNSW Law prioritises experiential learning, leading the way in innovative legal education. Our students don’t just learn about the law, they put their studies into action with Australia's leading and largest range of experiential learning opportunities.
