Teaching Venues and Cafe

In July 2004 the Honourable Chief Justice David Malcolm and Sir Ronald Wilson officially opened the new law building. The building houses a 130 seat lecture theatre/Electronic Moot Court, two tutorial rooms, two computer laboratories, the Law administrative offices and offices for SCALES. The building features a state-of-the-art electronic Moot court and lecture theatre sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills.


The Herbert Smith Freehills Electronic Moot Court is a mock court where hypothetical cases are tried for the training of law students. The School of Law recognises the growing importance of technology in legal practice and in the courts. The Herbert Smith Freehills Electronic Moot Court will educate students in the application of new technologies in the court-room. The Herbert Smith Freehills Electronic Moot Court also doubles as a lecture theatre and is complete with videoconferencing, imaging and internet technologies for the use of the classes held there.

The building also contains the King and Wood Mallesons Cafe that serves as a meeting place for students to study or just hang out.  The cafe is also the headquarters for the Murdoch Student Law Society.
