Adelaide Law School

Law School Development Plan

Everything that adds value to the Law School enhances its reputation and standing worldwide.

This includes targeted scholarships at key points in the student pathway, study tours, international exchanges, real life and simulated experiences including interstate and overseas competitions, and attracting early career researchers and world class visiting professors.

The ability to underwrite these predictably and permanently, as well as offering resources that equal those provided by many other universities, will sustain and enhance the School’s capability to rank among the very best in the world.

Law Endowment Funds can underwrite, in perpetuity, the School’s core needs, both for student support and ongoing research. In the same process, it builds its own autonomy, significantly reducing dependence on volatile funding sources such as government grants and student enrolments, cementing the Adelaide Law School’s standing against other tertiary institutions.
