Based in Australia’s capital city, Canberra, ANU provides an unparalleled location for the research and study of law.
By creating intersections between academia, government and the legal profession, we have developed links with the nation’s key law-making and legislative bodies - including the Australian Parliament and the High Court – and the agencies which support and engage with them, such as the Attorney-General’s Department and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Our location enables us to present a large number of events, conferences and seminars, spanning an array of topics, including intellectual property, preventative justice, ethics, Indigenous sovereignty, terrorism and human rights.
In addition, our Visitors Program attracts legal experts, practitioners and researchers from across Australia and around the world, each offering unique perspectives on the application of law in their respective fields.
Online & off-campus
Many of our programs and courses are offered online or off-campus, allowing more people to study with us, regardless of their location.
Many of our postgraduate programs also offer considerable flexibility for students needing to balance study with employment and other commitments. This includes intensive face-to-face learning for our several of our postgraduate courses followed by online learning.
Consistent with our commitment to academic rigor, entry requirements and assessment for online programs are the same as they are for their on-campus equivalent.
