Legal research clinics offer a variety of benefits to students. The clinics provide real-world opportunities for students to learn and grow their skills, not just in respect of the law, but also in the broader practice of being a lawyer – from thorough research and analysis, to working in a team, and productively balancing competing priorities. Students who have engaged in legal research clinics will carry with them valuable experience from which to draw in practice.

At Bond University, there is a newly established Internet Law Research Clinic. The clinic is supervised by legal academics and enables law students to volunteer their time during their degree to gain practical insight and experience in the area of legal technology and internet law solutions. Student volunteers work on projects related to access to legal technology, internet regulation, and cyber security issues, amongst others.
