In 1964, the first cohort of students enrolled in the Faculty of Law. It was remarkable that they were there at all, as the faculty did not formally exist; it had no building and only four staff. The law course had not been planned, let alone approved, by the Council of Legal Education! As the inaugural dean, Sir David Derham, told the first students, it was 'an act of faith' for them to come to Monash.
We kicked off in '64 with a handful of students and a lot of ambition. We now have programs, facilities and people that inspire us to keep pushing forward.
Law. It's more than a degree. More than one of the world's best law schools. We will inspire you to listen, analyse, question and excel.
