Principles in research and scholarship
The College promotes research and scholarship based on academic integrity and the practical application of the law. We aim to stay at the forefront of the new thinking, study and experimentation associated with best practice legal services.
Principles in teaching and learning
The College supports teaching and learning which involves:
- preparing new entrants to the legal profession by equipping them with sound legal knowledge, the conceptual ability to solve legal problems, practical legal skills and ethical awareness, and
- meeting the needs of practising lawyers and law firms through advanced learning programs that:
- address new knowledge and new concepts at the leading edge of professional practice, and
- support effective law practice management, and the delivery of legal services to the community, and
- provide quality, career-enhancing learning experiences for all participants.
The College actively contributes to the intellectual life of the legal profession and the community by engaging in a range of activities beyond core teaching and scholarship activities.
