Council of Australian Law Deans (CALD) is the peak body of Australian Law Schools.

CALD is an unincorporated association which has amongst its objectives:

  • Consultation on matters of mutual concern to members or their institutions and where appropriate the adoption of common policies;
  • The furtherance of legal education in Australia;
  • The encouragement of legal research;
  • The promotion of cooperation between law schools;
  • The maintenance of close relations between law schools and the legal profession;

The Deans of all the law schools in Australia are members of the Council and they meet together three times a year at different locations.

A number of reports and other documents, prepared for the Council of Australian Law Deans, are being published. These reports are, progressively, put on this website.
