About the School of Law and Justice

The UniSQ School of Law and Justice offers a world-class education in law and criminology and criminal justice. We provide our students with unparalleled flexibility in how, when and where to undertake their studies. 

All our degrees can be studied at Toowoomba, Ipswich or entirely online. Students can commence their studies in any of three trimesters each year. 

Our degrees can be accelerated by taking advantage of the trimester academic calendar or completed at a slower pace to fit in with other responsibilities. 

We are committed to:

  • Respecting and promoting the rule of law, ethical behaviour and professional responsibility in the School and legal profession;
  • Sustaining quality teaching, giving students flexible study options and an inclusive, stimulating, and supportive learning environment;
  • Ensuring that our students are career-ready, developing the necessary knowledge, understanding, skills and values to prepare them for a range of legal and related career options;
  • Sustaining a program of quality legal research and publications, and forging connections between research, teaching and student learning;
  • Engaging as teachers and researchers with comparative and international perspectives on law, justice and legal processes;
  • Actively engaging with the judiciary, legal profession and broader public (including online and regional communities); and
  • Continually renewing and improving our teaching and research programs in response to legal, educational and social change.

We offer fully accredited legal qualifications through our Bachelor of Laws and Juris Doctor, with a broad range of electives to allow students the choice to study personal interests.  These programs are accredited by the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board, ensuring our graduates are prepared for legal practice throughout Australia.  

The School of Law and Justice has been certified as meeting the Council of Australian Law Deans' standards for Australian Law Schools as determined by the certification process conducted by the Australian Law Schools Standards Committee. 

The School of Law and Justice is a member of the Asian Law Institute.
