About the Law School

Mission Statement

It is our mission to integrate the best traditions of legal scholarship into a modern context, and to teach and research law in a manner which reflects the international nature of our staff and student body. We seek to maintain a broad, critical and innovative approach to legal education, often driven by our original research, which opens opportunities both within and beyond the legal profession. We strive to work within a scholarly, professional, supportive and friendly community in which mutual respect among staff and students is maintained at all times, and which seeks to contribute to society locally, nationally and internationally.
