University of Wollongong (UW)

The Faculty of Law at the University of Wollongong was established in 1990.  The late Professor John Goldring, then a member of the Australian Law Reform Commission and formerly Professor and Head of the School of Law at Macquarie University, was appointed as Foundation Dean. He was succeeded as Dean by Professor Helen Gamble in 1995, Associate Professor Robin Handley in October 1999 and Professor Stuart Kaye in 2002.  In 2007 Professor Luke McNamara was appointed Dean of the Faculty of Law.

The Faculty has attracted highly qualified staff from Universities in Australia and overseas and from the practice of law, and has also established a reputation for innovative research. It is home to the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security and the Centre for Transnational Crime Prevention (both based at the UOW Innovation Campus), and the Legal Intersections Research Centre.
