The Canberra Law School is the law school of Australia’s capital city.
We are orientated to the future, seeking to understand the future of law and its administration and to engage with emerging trends.
We proudly use research-led educational methods that support students in the adventure of learning law.
We emphasise practical legal problem-solving in social and economic context and the development of advocacy abilities and legal skills while understanding their connections to the theory and history of law.
We strive to graduate professionals with respect for social and ethical responsibilities.
Governance in public and private spheres is the common element in the three main areas of strength of the Canberra Law School;
(i) Corporate and Commercial Law,
(ii) Revenue Law, and
Through the affiliation of the Canberra Law School with the Australia & New Zealand School of Governance [ANZSOG] Institute of Governance we pursue excellence in research and publication in our areas of strength.
Over half the academic staff of the Canberra Law School have achieved Doctor of Philosophy qualifications in their fields and, through our commitment to professional development, 90% of our academic staff will have Doctoral qualifications by 2011.
The Canberra Law School takes an international approach to everything it does.
We value highly our connections with top international law schools which enable international exchange of students. Much of our research is undertaken on an international and comparative basis.
Thus, through our teaching, research and professional engagement with the legal and justice sectors, in Australia and internationally, the Canberra Law School bridges law in action and law in the books.
