Making a mark on legal education

We are committed to intellectual rigour, the rule of law, social justice, access, equity, and diversity, as well as values and ideals of ethics, service and professionalism.

We pioneered a contemporary approach to teaching law in its societal, economic and political context. Our degree programmes offer a deep knowledge of the law and critical perspectives that enable our students to understand how the law has developed and is likely to develop.

We emphasize international student experience and hands-on clinical legal training. We strive to deliver graduates who excel at critical and analytical thinking, possess excellent communication, research and professional skills, and are reflective and independent learners. Many of our graduates have become leaders in a multiplicity of fields, including private legal practice, industry, commerce, government, education, and community services.

Our research combines excellence with impact across all areas of the law. It is innovative and interdisciplinary. It seeks to offer thought leadership on key societal issues such as the environment and climate change, immigration and refugees, social justice and human rights, technological change, international economic development, and trade. Many of our experts actively engage with industry, decision makers and the wider community – locally, nationally and internationally.

This is a particularly exciting time of expansion, investment and renewal at the Macquarie Law School. A stunning new law school building, named in honour of the Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG, will provide an unparalleled environment for students, scholars, alumni and professionals alike. We hope to welcome you into the growing Macquarie family. You will find a warm community, a vibrant campus, and a stimulating hive of activity.

Join us and become a change maker!
