Faculty Introduction


Executive Dean’s Welcome

The Faculty of Law and Business provides a unique and inspiring educational journey, unlike any other offered in Australia. Our curriculum is ethical, global and practical, and we produce lawyers and business leaders who act in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.

On behalf of the Faculty of Law and Business it is my pleasure to welcome you to Australian Catholic University.

The Faculty is outward facing, deeply engaged with industry, government and community. Our programs therefore place strong emphasis on practical, employment relevant-skills, as well as focusing on a fundamental concern for justice, equity, and the dignity of all human beings.

The curriculum is continually updated to reflect local and international trends and changes to the commercial environment as well as advances in student learning. This ensures our graduates are well-equipped to take their place as leaders in the professions of law and business management.

We understand that many students face time constraints, juggling work and family responsibilities. Adopting a flexible learning approach, the Faculty offers many subjects online as well as in a blended mode to enhance learning ‘anywhere, anytime’.

If you have not studied at a tertiary level previously, we take into consideration professional development and work-related experience to offer mature-age students a range of courses to upgrade skills and facilitate entry to a master’s degree. Also, we offer a well–designed suite of student resources to support the learning experience.

Our teaching staff have extensive industry and academic experience and a distinguished teaching capacity. The teaching approach is inspired by a strong commitment to every student, with a shared passionate belief that all of us, together, can make a positive difference for self and society.

Best wishes for your studies and future career.
