Australian law and policy
Our research investigates legal topics relevant to modern social issues including domestic violence, immigration, disability policy, the environment, crime and corruption, parliamentary elections and biotechnology.
The School frequently collaborates with other academics and institutions from around the world, in areas including South Pacific law, migrant smuggling, human rights and federalism.
In the media
Our academics are often asked to make contributions to popular media platforms, especially in areas of constitutional law, domestic violence and disability assistance.
The School produces three well-respected publications – the UQ Law Journal, the LAWASIA Journal and the Australian and New Zealand Maritime Law Journal. Our academics regularly edit and contribute to books on important legal issues.
RHD and student research
We encourage our undergraduates to pursue research early in their legal careers, and our PhD candidates to investigate socially-relevant, important topics.
