    JCU offers a high standard of teaching and a strong support system for law students. The teachers have a good attitude towards teaching, have an incredible understanding of the content and are open to feedback. Students have great networking opportunities, such as get-togethers and guest lecturers.

    Alumni

    Bill Mitchell

    Bachelor of Laws

    I’ve always had a strong focus on human rights. When TCL called for student volunteers in my fourth year at JCU, this introduced me to community legal centres. Having a direct hand in seeing justice done for those who cannot access justice is deeply satisfying.

    Lecturer

    Jamie Fellows

    Head of Law

    The benefit of studying at JCU is that there are smaller classes compared to other universities. If students need help, it is very easy to get access to their teaching staff. And for students who are living further away, with online study they can still come to JCU and study many of our courses.
