My name is Professor Trish Mundy and I'm the Dean of Law at UOW Law. UOW Law started in and a very strong focus of the Law degree is its social justice foundations. The ability to actually not only practice as a lawyer but to do so many other things with your law degree so really popular doubles like Arts, like Psychology, like Business, really means that you can actually take your legal skills into a whole range of careers.

Law is such a versatile degree in many ways, so it's not just about going to practice as a lawyer, although many will. But you can use your legal knowledge and skills that you develop in so many ways and in so many careers.

One of the key features of UOW law is its’ first-year integrated program. One of the elements of the first-year integrated program is its’ Pods and Pods is essentially where students are grouped together and they study with the same group of students across all of their subjects in the first semester of their first year. This has the real benefit of facilitating strong friendships, strong study groups and really a much more personalized connection with not only their classmates but with the teaching staff.

UOW Law is the only law school in Australia that offers a compulsory internship program as part of its degree. This means that every law student will have the opportunity to reflect on the law in action and apply their legal knowledge to real life situations.

UOW Law has been voted number one in New South Wales and the ACT for undergraduate Law. This means that students can expect a high-quality personalised learning experience.
