Events

Events hosted by UQ Law or organisations with which we have an affiliation. 

UQ Law prioritises the health, safety and wellbeing of our people – students, staff, alumni, industry partners and the community – above all else. Due to public health concerns around COVID-19, we are changing the way we bring you events this semester.

 A number of key activities will be planned for Semester 2, so be sure to register. Until then, we are working to bring you some exciting content in the form of live-streaming, podcasts, articles and photos. To make sure you don’t miss out on these updates, opt-in to our Newsletter.
