University of Newcastle Law School graduate practicing in Ontario

Can you really study law at an Australian law school and come back to Canada to practice?

It’s a common question we receive, and for good reason. Who wants to invest time and money on a degree you can’t use at home?

Well, the good news is yes, you can! Every year OzTREKK sends dozens of Canadians to Australia to study Juris Doctor or Bachelor of Laws degrees, and every year, graduates come back to Canada and are successful at finding employment.

After graduating from the University of Newcastle in 2013, international alumna and law graduate Kaitlin Jagersky believes studying the Juris Doctor/Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice has made all the difference in gaining employment as a family law lawyer in one of Canada’s leading law firms in Ontario, Canada.

Newcastle law students enjoy international experience

Twenty Newcastle Law School students recently enjoyed a trip to East Java in Indonesia as part of the law program’s International Study Experience course. The course focuses on the regulation of the social and environmental impact of business, and is run in collaboration with the Law Faculty of the University of Brawijaya (UB) in Malang, one of the top 10 universities in Indonesia. Law students from UB have also participated in the program, and UoN students really value the opportunity to discuss with and learn from UB students.

Newcastle Law students in front of the UB Faculty of Law

The students have attended lectures by UB professors on a range of topics, including regulation of palm oil plantations, corruption regulation and workers’ rights. The program has included a range of field trips, including visits to a number of environmental and legal aid organisations, law firms, a reforestation project, and the state court. The students also visited one of Indonesia’s largest mining-related environmental disasters, a mud volcano that has devastated a significant area of East Java (Lumpur Lapindo).

Newcastle Law students were particularly interested to learn about the recognition of Adat law (loosely translated as local customary law) within the Indonesian legal system. During the court visit, one of the judges discussed the concept of restorative justice, and the need for responses to crime to draw on local customs in order to focus on restoring harmony to a community, rather than simply punishing an offender. Restorative justice is actually a key interest of Newcastle Law School, and they are part of a project to turn Newcastle into a “restorative city.”

Enjoying the sights at Rainbow Waterfall

In addition to lectures and field trips, the program has involved opportunities to see some of Indonesia’s rich natural beauty, including visits to the Rainbow Waterfall and to Mt Bromo, one of Indonesia’s active volcanoes. While in Malang, the UB students took good care of the students from UoN, taking them to the best cafés, restaurants and other attractions in their amazing city.

Study at the Newcastle Law School

UoN is committed to giving law students opportunities for international study experiences. This year, in addition to the short course in Indonesia, law professors from UoN will be taking law students on short course programs in Brazil, Cambodia, China, the Cook Islands, Japan and Vietnam.

On top of amazing international experiences, students will have access to the state-of-the-art facilities, as Newcastle Law School is now housed at the NeW Space precinct. JD students are currently enjoying the highest quality social learning spaces, digital library services and information commons, collaborative learning and research spaces, and facilities for engagement with industry, business and the community.

 

Program: Juris Doctor & Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice
Location: Newcastle (Callaghan)
Duration: 3 years
Semester intakes: February and July each year
Next available semester intake: February 2019
Application deadline: There is no official application deadline. Candidates are encouraged to apply at least three months prior to the program’s start date.

Newcastle Law students study at award-winning NeW Space

The University of Newcastle’s (UON) flagship City campus has taken out the top prize at the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2018 Newcastle Architecture Awards, held on March 23.

Newcastle Law students study at award-winning NeW Space

Award-winning NeW Space Precinct (Photo: UON)

UON’s NeW Space, designed in collaboration with Melbourne-based Lyons and the Hunter’s EJE Architecture, received the top Newcastle Jury Prize as well as three further awards for Educational Architecture, Interior Architecture and Urban Design.

Chief Operating Officer Mr Nat McGregor said the awards were wonderful recognition of NeW Space’s innovative design and its impact on the flourishing Newcastle CBD.

“This recognition is a testament to the world-class building and its wider impacts on our communities, our students, staff and our business and industry partners,” he said.

“The University of Newcastle is forging a path of innovation in the ways in which we teach, engage and translate our world-class research. NeW Space will continue to play a key role in demonstrating new ways of learning, teaching and engaging with our communities and partners.”

Officially opened last year and delivering new academic and research programs in business, law and emerging fields including creative industries, innovation and entrepreneurship, NeW Space has made an impressive mark on the region.

The jury noted the vertical campus was highly impressive and “an exemplar of design for ‘new generation’ learning, urban renewal, and of civic place making, drawing together a complex brief of interlocking educational and public spaces.”

NeW Space was supported by Australian Government funding of $30 million through the Education Investment Fund Regional Priorities Round, NSW Government funding of $25 million and an investment of $40 million from UON.
