The Monash Law Faculty was established more than half a century ago to be a different kind of law school, with a pioneering spirit, an enterprising and inclusive approach, and a deep commitment to access to justice in all of its forms.

At Monash Law, we work with the legal profession and industry partners to develop a new generation of law graduates whose curiosity, commitment and leadership will make a difference to our world. We offer a broad-based legal educational experience, for the benefit of students and their potential employers within and beyond the legal profession. We invest in our facilities, such as our renowned clinical sites, state-of-the-art moot court, and contemporary, student-centred learning environments.

Monash Law is the only Australian law school to operate from seven different locations on three continents, and with significant investment in three community legal centres. Our commitment to local communities and the legal profession is as deep as our commitment to preparing our students and supporting our academics to make a difference in the world. Our dedicated Monash University Law Chambers situated in the Melbourne legal district complements our Clayton base and legal clinics.

The Faculty also has a vibrant research culture, with a strong commitment to diverse and innovative forms of high-quality and cross-disciplinary legal research that has a governmental, professional, and social impact. We collaborate with world leaders in legal research and education throughout Australia and internationally and have demonstrated top-tier research-intensive performance. Our staff are involved in ARC Discovery and Linkage grants and CRC projects. The Faculty also has three outstanding research centres, the Castan Centre of Human Rights, the Australian Centre for Justice Innovation, and the Centre for Commercial Law and Regulatory Studies, and a number of vibrant research groups including Feminist Legal Studies, Transnational Criminal Law, Health and Wellbeing and Sustainable Legal Practice, as well as the new Capital Punishment Impact initiative.
