As Australia’s national law school, ANU Law educates tomorrow’s lawyers, leaders and policy makers. Underpinned by our deep-seated and long-held focus on law reform and social justice, we encourage our students to question how and why law does and doesn’t work, and consider their part in reform. From the very beginning, inclusiveness has been a central value of the law school. Financial or social barriers or cultural nuances should not limit students with the academic potential and commitment to learning that a quality legal education at ANU demands.

We have a range of opportunities for you to support ANU Law students, and vital research that addresses the great legal, social and political challenges of the 21st century. Please contact Jo James if you would like to explore supporting a specific area or initiative.
