School of Law Research
Our diverse and energetic research community undertakes research that leads to real change in law, legal practice, legal education, public policy and ideas.
While we undertake research across a wide range of legal fields spanning the national and international spheres — our cutting-edge research focuses on the Greater Western Sydney region – a vast geographical area of rapid development, aspiration, and extraordinary social, economic, ethnic, cultural, linguistic and religious diversity.
Our research is inter-disciplinary, doctrinal, theoretical and contextual, and makes a significant and lasting contribution to the understanding and development of law nationally and internationally.
The impact of our research can be seen not only through its distribution in conventional academic fora, but also by its contributions to law reform, public policy, case law and legislation, legal practice, and legal education.
