Why UOW Law?

Why Study With Us?

Get to Know Your Classmates

Your timetable in first session is structured so that you have classes with the same group of people for all of your subjects. This approach provides you with a smooth transition into university and fosters valuable social and learning networks. Classes are kept small to ensure you’re supported and guided by our committed teaching team.

Practical Skills

In Law at UOW, you will study practical subjects, and gain valuable experience through the internship program. Practical skills include:

  • Legal Research and Writing
  • Advocacy Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Drafting Skills
  • Dispute Management Skills

Experience the Law in Action

We believe that practical experience is a vital part of legal training. In fact, we are the only law school in Australia that requires all students complete a work placement (legal internship) as part of their law degree. At UOW, a legal internship is not simply ‘work experience’, it is an important learning tool that gives you an opportunity to apply your legal knowledge to real life situations.

Explore the Bigger Picture

You can learn from the talented staff at our research centres by taking an elective in their areas of expertise. Staff from the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security (ANCORS) and the Legal Intersections Research Centre (LIRC) teach specialist subjects to our undergraduate students.

A UOW Law Degree Can Take You Anywhere

A UOW law degree is a passport to a diverse range of career options. We’re proud of the way our degree equips students with the skills and qualities to take on the world.
