The Indigenous Law Centre (ILC) is an integral part of the life of the Faculty of Law at UNSW. Established in 1981, the ILC is the only Indigenous law research centre in Australia.

The ILC also produces the Indigenous Law Bulletin and the Australian Indigenous Law Review—the only two journals dedicated specifically to Indigenous legal issues in Australia.

The work of the ILC has been important to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and the Centre has been involved in High Court cases such as Koowarta v Bjelke-PetersonMabo v Queensland, as well as work around constitutional recognition for Indigenous peoples through Uluru Statement from the Heart and International Indigenous rights advocacy such as the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
