We have high quality programs taught by experienced and passionate lecturers and professors to give you the knowledge and tools you will need to advance your career in Law or a non-law related field.

As a student you will have a chance to really get to know your lecturers and engage with them. The staff at Murdoch Law School consists of a diverse group of people who have two things in common - a passion for the law and a passion for teaching.

Murdoch Law School is also proud of a very active student body that is passionate about their studies. Our Murdoch Student Law Society (MSLS) organise lots of different events, from career oriented seminars to legal competitions and the Law Ball.

Murdoch has a dedicated student advisor located in each school and these staff guide and support all students in their academic and social transition to University. Students have come to view their student advisors as the clear first point of contact, through which they can obtain advice and referrals to other support service. The suite of activities performed by the student advisor network ensures that students obtain assistance and guidance well before any transition issue becomes overwhelming and informs best practice in the first year experience across the university.
