Welcome from Prof Michael Quinlan
Welcome from Professor Michael Quinlan
Welcome to The University of Notre Dame Australia and to the School of Law & Business. At the School of Law & Business we want to assist you to achieve your full potential, whether your aim is to join the legal profession, to enter the business world or to use the knowledge and skills gained through your studies for other purposes. We are committed to providing our students with an excellent standard of teaching and training for their profession, and our range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees are designed to help you thrive in your chosen field.
Our academic staff include many experienced business people, barristers, solicitors and legal advisers. Their experience is as diverse as the legal profession and the industries they represent, some coming from a corporate background or having worked in politics, and others coming from large and small firms, government, not-for-profits or religious organisations around Australia and overseas.
As a School within a Catholic university, we have a commitment to the pastoral care of our students and to developing graduates with a solid ethical foundation and an ability to think critically. Our objective is to graduate students who are not only equipped to be successful in the workplace but are keen to demonstrate their professional responsibility and to make a real contribution to the common good. This contribution may be in their day to day work, in the research that they undertake or in their volunteering and engagement with the community through pro bono work.
If you are joining us as a new student or returning to complete your degree, I wholeheartedly welcome you. If you are considering studying with the School of Law & Business and have any questions about the University, our School or the degrees we offer, we would be delighted to hear from you.
