A quarter of academics at UNSW Law & Justice work primarily in the field of international law and global governance.

We tackle global regulatory problems that may affect the international community in innovative ways. Our research reinvents many theoretical traditions, reaching the highest levels of scholarship. It has deep impact on the practice of addressing global legal challenges, like international environmental law, globalisation, international trade and how these challenges are dealt with by international institutions. Our academics work directly with top firms, international organisations, civil society and nation states around the world.
