UNSW Law & Justice’s research centres, groups and networks are a vibrant part of our research culture and agenda. They connect prominent scholars and initiatives for both academic and real-world impact.
Our legal research, advocacy and education centres and institutes are integral to the faculty’s research success. They also provide unique internships and legal clinical education for UNSW Law & Justice students.
The Kaldor Centre contributes world-leading research and policy analysis to the public debate about protecting refugees and asylum seekers, promoting legal, sustainable and humane solutions to forced migration.
Home to the world’s largest cohort of Chinese law scholars outside China, the centre engages in research covering international business and economic law specific to the Australia–China trading corridor.
Our affiliated centres address major social challenges and public interest concerns. As independent organisations housed at UNSW Law & Justice, they work closely with UNSW staff and students in tackling social justice issues.
UNSW Law & Justice research groups and networks connect world-leading academics with areas of research strength within the faculty. They advance research and teaching, contributing to advocacy and public policy.
