LAW AND SOCIAL JUSTICE




Law

Changing behaviour. Shaping debate. Interdisciplinary research.

Globally, concerns are increasing about inequality and its impact on society. Is this an issue of social change or political change? What is the role of law and policy in both changing behaviour and shaping national and international debate and awareness, from issues as wide-ranging as human rights throughout the life span, to the environment.

UniSA’s School of Law is emerging as a leader in legal and policy research in Australia. It combines broad disciplinary expertise with a focus on applied and often multi-disciplinary work that addresses key societal issues, and influences decision-making and policy development.

The School has particular strengths in corporate and commercial law – including competition and consumer law, and hosts the annual competition law forum, in partnership with ACCC.

The School also has depth in public law and human rights, which includes interdisciplinary research on ageing, and intergenerational and indigenous rights.
