Curtin University has opened a new Law School campus in Perth’s Central Business District within an existing 1912 heritage listed building located at 57 Murray Street. Situated in the Perth CBD in close proximity to the Supreme Court, District Court and Perth Magistrate’s Court, as well as statutory tribunals such as the State Administrative Tribunal, the city campus will facilitate student’s education within an applied industry setting in line with Curtin’s primary vision of developing job-ready graduates. The new facility will also provide a unique home for the Law School and provide a hub for both formal and informal interactions between the staff, students and in-house legal professionals.
Teaching and learning has been optimised within the building through the use of state-of-the-art collaborative and distributed learning space design and learning technologies. These facilities include a technologically equipped moot court, allowing for both traditional and seminar based learning, as well as practical interactions.
The School of Law is currently working towards the establishment of private practice barrister offices co-located in the premises which will enable legal professionals to contribute to the educational program. A Legal clinic is also planned to be included as part of the facility which will specialise in legal issues for small businesses, to give students further opportunities to interact with the legal profession and the public.
