The ANU College of Law is one of Australia’s leading law schools. Established in 1960 as the Faculty of Law, the ANU College of Law is the 7th oldest of Australia’s 29 law schools, and has produced graduates who are now leaders in their chosen fields all over the world. It is also home to some of Australia’s best-known and most outstanding legal scholars and teachers, and to flagship publications such as the Federal Law Review and the Australian Year Book of International Law. The College also includes Legal Workshop, the National Institute of Social Sciences and Law, and a number of associated Centres and affiliated bodies.

Located in the national capital, seat of the national Parliament, the federal Executive, and the High Court, the ANU College of Law is, in a sense, Australia’s ‘national’ law school. Accordingly, it has special strengths in a number of areas, including international law and public law, and it draws its students and staff from all over Australia, as well as from overseas. It not only has the traditional commitment of Australian law schools to excellence in teaching and research, but also a distinct ethos of commitment to the continuous improvement of the law and the operation of the legal system.

The ANU College of Law offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs, including the LLB, Graduate Diploma and Masters programs, practical legal training through the Legal Workshop, and research degrees such as the SJD and PhD. These programs incorporate a number of special opportunities such as internships, clinical programs, overseas exchanges, supervised research and writing, intensive courses, and access to cutting-edge research and scholarship.
