Invest in Change


Help our world-class academics to seek and find solutions across a diverse spectrum of issues: whaling, deforestation, child protection and tax reform in developing nations are just a few of the areas we are currently focused on. By supporting an area that matters greatly to you, you can expand the impact of our research and help attract talented new scholars to our staff. It will also boost the faculty’s international reputation and enrich our teaching, because a truly great law school is research-driven.

Social Justice Program

In response to rising demand from students, the legal profession and academic staff for clinical legal education as an integral part of a law degree, we must offer students the opportunity to experience pro-bono and practical legal work. Building upon our existing external placement program, students will work under supervision with groups such as the Public Interest Law Clearing House, the Refugee Casework Advisory Service and Legal Aid to gain insight into the realities of legal practice. To establish and grow this important program we urgently need your support.


Give back to the school which launched your own career by helping us continue our 150-year tradition of educating graduates who make a difference – as Prime Ministers, Chief Justices, human rights advocates and in countless other leadership roles. With a gift to scholarships you can help us continue to attract the best and brightest students. You can also give a talented student who is financially or otherwise disadvantaged the opportunity to realise their full potential by studying at Sydney Law School. We also have an urgent need to increase support for post-graduate students, the next generation of thought-leaders.


With the strong support of our alumni and friends, we have created a state-of-the-art new home for Sydney Law School at the heart of the University’s historic Main Campus. Equipped with purpose-built teaching spaces, a new law library and an electronic Moot Court, it is a platform for us to consolidate our position as one of the world’s leading law schools. But we require ongoing investment to maintain the building and provide the leading-edge technology required for a 21st century legal education. Your gift will help secure the physical foundation for its future success.
