The Western Sydney University School of Law comprises part of the College of Business at the Western Sydney University. It is housed on the Parramatta and Campbeltown Campuses of the University. It is one of Sydney's youngest Law Schools. The School of Law was established on 1 January 2001 as a result of the amalgamation of the three former federated members of the University of Western Sydney - Hawkesbury, Macarthur and Nepean. The establishment of the school brought together the law programs of those organisations.
The law school places special emphasis on commercial law including taxation law, banking, finance and investment law, contracts and corporations law, and delivers programs in specialist areas such as elder law and international law.
In 2014, the first Australian chapter of the International Criminal Court Student Network (ICCSN) was founded by law students at the University of Western Sydney.
