Refurbished roost lets legal eagles fly

The upcoming generation of lawyers are in the best of hands with UQ’s world-leading Law School staff now complemented by state-of-the-art learning facilities.

The $35 million refurbishment of the TC Beirne School of Law comprises new lecture, electronic and library resources thanks to visionary and generous gifting by UQ Law School supporters.

The refurbishment supports the School’s Create History project, a major refocusing of the School to provide a stimulating, interactive and inspiring environment for students and teachers.

Academic Dean and Head of School Professor Sarah Derrington said the generous support of alumni, the legal fraternity and the wider community ensured that students were even better prepared to make a quality contribution to the modern legal workforce.

“It’s important to remember that the project is also supporting an endowment scholarship fund to assist financially disadvantaged students,” she said.

Fourth-year law student Emily McClelland said the refurbishment heralded a new era for the TC Beirne School of Law.

“When the School opened 80 years ago, the goal was to be the best in Australia,” she said.

“Now the doors of the refurbished School facilities are open and my generation is aiming even higher.”
