The Brennan Justice and Leadership Program (Brennan Program) was introduced in 2011 as a joint initiative of the UTS Faculty of Law and the UTS Law Students’ Society. The Brennan Program is a free, voluntary program for UTS Law students that seeks to strengthen the justice consciousness, idealism and sense of service that participants bring to their studies and later professional work. The program has two separate components of reflection and service. It is named after Sir Gerard Brennan AC KBE, former Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia and UTS Chancellor (1999-2005). Sir Gerard’s life and career exemplified the qualities of professional leadership, service and excellence that the Program seeks to nurture.
