UNSW Law & Justice marks an important milestone in 2021. For the last 50 years, the faculty – built on a steadfast commitment to excellence, intellectual ambition and pursuit of social justice – has been producing some of the best law graduates in Australia and around the world.

Our 50th year sees a refreshed name for the faculty, the addition of criminology to our programs and marks a time to reflect on our achievements and those of the faculty’s graduates. Importantly, it is a time to celebrate with the community that has helped the faculty carve a place in Australia’s legal history.
