“Macquarie’s teaching of law is innovative. It has a focus on class participation that promotes critical thinking and expression. These skills are critical not only for lawyers, but also to other professions should graduates not pursue law. It also utilises practical teaching methods to encourage students to develop the skills that they will need on day one of practice such as writing case notes, researching the law and interpreting legislation."
"The Macquarie law degree will take you wherever you want to go. It is a testament to the versatility of my degree that I have confidently and capably represented clients across a range of legal matters; from stamp duty to criminal charges. Friends that I studied with work in a range of different industries, and for varied employers such as commercial firms, government departments, unions, courts, criminal firms and pro bono organisations. I look back on my time at Macquarie with great fondness. I met fantastic people, learnt from passionate and dedicated teachers, and gained skills that have helped my career immensely.”
