Swinburne Law School was established in 2014. Since its inception, the Swinburne's strength is in its focus on social innovation, creativity, technology and intellectual property. We have three main teaching and research emphases: technology and innovation, commercial law, and Asian law. Our law degree has an integrated practical legal skills program and students are also required to complete three professional placements in the course of their degree. Swinburne Law School encourages innovative teaching, which combines technology with various forms of blended learning, and has an emphasis on small class sizes. All full time lecturers are committed to teaching and are able to maintain a small staff to student ratio to ensure that students receive the best educational outcomes from the law degree. Swinburne Law School has staff from Myanmar, India, and Malaysia, and has staff with research experience in those places as well as Indonesia and Singapore. The school is currently seeking accreditation to open a law school at Swinburne's campus in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
