Abstract

Contemporary Australian universities have always been implicated in the broader power relations in which they are embedded. In our historical period, this context has been characterised by neoliberal political and economic practices which have, among other things, made central the relationship of individuals with the market and sidelined any larger conception of the social. Australian universities have not been immune to the changes neoliberalism has wrought on the social fabric. Indeed, as we will argue, their impact on universities is difficult to understate.

Keywords: Legal Education, Neoliberalism, Australian Universities, Resistance
