The Monash Law Faculty (‘Monash Law’) 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, strong professional and community connections, and a deep commitment to access to justice in all of its forms. Monash Law’s continuing vision is to be a leading globally, clinically, and digitally engaged Australian law school and scholarly community, extending our legal educational and research expertise and impact from Victoria and Australia to the Indo-Pacific region and throughout the world.

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 broadly based, experiential, and rich legal education, 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 CBD judicial and legal district complements our Clayton base and legal clinics in multiple locations.

Monash Law 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 governmental, professional, and social impact. We engage and collaborate with world leaders in legal research and education throughout Australia and internationally, and have demonstrated top-tier and impactful research performance. Monash Law also has three outstanding research centres, the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law, the Australian Centre for Justice Innovation, and the Centre for Commercial Law and Regulatory Studies, together with Eleos Justice on capital punishment and also a number of emerging research groups with a focus on Feminist Legal Studies, Transnational Criminal Law, Commercial Dispute Resolution, Public Sector Law and Governance, Law Health and Wellbeing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), Technology, and Regulation.
