The School of Law and Justice at the University of Queensland, Australia, was established in late 2007 and took its first students in 2008. It is located on two campuses. The main campus for the School is in Toowoomba, a major inland city with strong educational tradition. There are six academics on a smaller campus in Springfield, just outside Brisbane. All programs are offered on both campuses and online. The School offers an undergraduate (LLB) and a graduate (JD) law program, as well as teaching law into business and arts programs. From 2016, it will also offer a masters degree in laws (LLM). The graduate courses offered by the School have a strong comparative legal focus. Thera are 11 graduate research students in the School. Although it is a broad based School with active researchers who cover the legal field, research expertise is concentrated in comparative law, public law and the scholarship on the legal profession. There are 24 academics in the School, with eight holding law degrees from outside Australia. It has a high proportion of PhD qualified staff (84%). The School is home to the editorship of Legal Ethics (a UK Taylor & Francis journal).
