Our publicly declared ambition is to offer the best broad based and experiential legal education available to law students and become a leading international, clinical and digital law school in the Indo-Pacific region.

    The Dean of Law will lead the development and execution of the Faculty's strategic plan, in response to the University's Strategic Plan – Impact 2030 , and position the Faculty at the forefront of Australian and global research, teaching and industry engagement. They will inspire staff and students, and cultivate deep relationships within the legal profession, industry, academia, government, and the broader community.
