Promoting Excellence in Legal Academic Teaching and Research

Home: Welcome


On 1 July 2019, the Australasian Law Teachers Association (ALTA) was relaunched as the Australasian Law Academics Association (ALAA). The name change reflects the Association’s renewed commitment to representing and supporting all law academics in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Established in 1946 as the Australian Universities Law Schools Association, the Association has for the past 73 years provided a platform for Australasian law teachers and legal scholars to network, collaborate and share expertise, primarily by way of the annual Conference, the Association’s Interest Groups, and the Association’s academic publications including the Legal Education Review, and the Journal of ALAA. 

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of Australia and Māori as tangata whenua in Aotearoa New Zealand. We also acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians of the lands where all our members live and work.
