The UTS Faculty of Law (UTS:Law) was established in 1975 and is located in the heart of Sydney in a cosmopolitan and diverse area, which is also the precinct for creative and innovative industries and a short walk away from the central business district. The Faculty of Law is a dynamic and innovative law school, which has achieved great success for the quality of its legal education and research in its relatively short history. The Faculty is ranked 40th in the world and 7th in Australia by the QS World University Rankings by Subject in 2018.
