Law & Justice student experience

Learn inside and outside the classroom.

We offer rigorous programs of learning where you can gain high-level practical experience through exchange and international courses, internships, clinics and competitions, most of which are credited towards your degree.

UNSW Law & Justice leads the way in innovative legal education. Our students don’t just learn about the law, they put their studies into action with Australia’s leading and largest range of experiential learning opportunities. 

Every LLB and Juris Doctor (JD) student spends time at our on-site community legal centre, Kingsford Legal Centre (KLC), and prior to 2020, one in two of our students completed part of their degree overseas, with the hope that this can resume in the near future.

“Experiential learning offers students the unique opportunity to simultaneously study the theory of law in the classroom, and also to experience it in action. It plays a critical role in the process of transforming our Law & Justice students into ethical, analytical and engaged legal professionals.”
