The University of Wollongong continues expanding into what was once Western Sydney U’s heartland. And it has enlisted some-time WSU poster-person Deng Adut.
UoW’s law school opens today at its fast-expanding Liverpool campus, way inland from the university’s scenic home on the Illawarra coast and in southwest Sydney, where WSU was long the only HE provider. But WSU does not teach law at Liverpool, only at Campbelltown 24km further out and at Parramatta 17km away to the north, (neither of which seems far, until you drive it in traffic).
Former High Court judge Michael Kirby and Mr Adut will do the launching honours today. Mr Adut has a law masters from UoW but took his first law degree at WSU, featuring in its student recruitment marketing.UoW is playing to win in the west.
