Mission of the Murdoch Law School

Vision:  To be known as the WA Law school of choice.

Mission: To help students achieve their educational goals and be work ready.

The Mission of Murdoch Law School is to provide a rigorous and intellectually challenging legal education to its students based on the fundamental principle of the rule of law and on Murdoch University’s foundational theme of social justice. We aim to provide our students with the necessary skills in research, writing and advocacy to prepare them for leadership positions in the legal, business, government, academic and community sectors. As Murdoch Law School we strive to provide an exciting and vibrant educational environment to challenge our students to broaden their horizon intellectually and practically throughout our curriculum, in our clinical education program, our competition and mooting offerings and in our international programs and we aspire to be a world class and leading Australian law school. As researchers we strive to provide the public, the profession and the academy with quality and thought provoking contributions that will add value to the broader discourse in the fields of law and criminology.
