Boards and Committees, UNSW Law

UNSW Law is governed by the Faculty Board which consists of members of the full-time academic staff, casual teaching staff, various nominees and student representatives.

The Board meets bi-monthly and various Faculty committees report to the Faculty Board. These include Academic Quality Assurance Committee, Qualifying Degree Committee, Postgraduate Education Committee, Research Committee and Indigenous Legal Education Reconciliation and Research Committee. The Faculty Board Chair is nominated by the Dean, and is currently the Associate Dean (Academic).
