40th Anniversary Events


UTS:Law Research draws on law’s ability to enforce social change. Our accomplished researchers, working in many different areas of law, are committed to shaping the society we live in – whether by advocating for legislative and policy change, or responsibly informing public debate.

Recently, we’ve powered ahead in the research arena. Not only are we now recognised as one of UTS’ strongest research strengths, we’ve been acknowledged as having a research performance ‘above world class’ by the Commonwealth’s Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) Initiative.

Our research culture is a vibrant and inclusive one. It is cross-disciplinary, collaborative and rigorous, with developing strengths in the areas of Health Justice and Law History, Culture.


“This recognition of research success is a steep increase for UTS, and the ERA ranking places our legal research at ‘above world standard’,” says Professor Brian Opeskin, Associate Dean (Research).
