Law at UOW South Western Sydney campus

The University of Wollongong’s South Western Sydney (SWS) campus at Liverpool is where the region’s best and brightest can earn an internationally recognised degree — without having to travel. This campus is the first major university campus in Liverpool and builds on an already thriving relationship between UOW and the Great South West.

A world-class legal education

A Bachelor of Laws from UOW equips you with a comprehensive legal education: a world-class degree that provides a thorough grounding in the law, as well as a real-world focus on the essential practical skills and the social and ethical context in which the law operates.

The federal government's Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) ranked UOW in 2017 as the best university in New South Wales and the ACT for Law and Paralegal Studies.

UOW Law has also been ranked 85th worldwide, 8th in Australia and 3rd in New South Wales by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (2018).  

Law degrees on offer

UOW Law degrees open a range of career opportunities in legal work and other industries. In addition to studying Law, you can choose a double degree in Business, International Studies and IT, giving you practical skills that will help you excel in the highly competitive global workplace.

Flexible study options

If you're enrolled in a Law double degree at the Wollongong campus in 2019 but live in the SWS region, you may be able to study your first year subjects in Liverpool.
