The first Queenslander to captain his native side to a Sheffield Shield triumph, Stuart Law enjoyed significant success with his state, plus Essex and Lancashire. He gained British citizenship although he had no intention of trying to add to his single Test cap. Law was a prolific batsman in Australian domestic cricket, but was around in an era when there was no shortage of quality batsman. Therefore, he was restricted to that solitary Test cap, against Sri Lanka in Perth in 1995-96, and scored an unbeaten half-century - leaving him without a Test average. His ODI career spanned 54 matches, but he was dropped before the Australians triumphant 1999 campaign in England.

He continued to churn out endless streams of runs for Queensland, Essex and Lancashire, passing 1000 runs every English season from 1999-2003, and only injury prevented him continuing the streak in 2004. His stint at Essex ended in acrimonious fashion in 2001, and he signed for Lancashire, where he continued to score consistently big runs. Showing that his enthusiasm wasn't dimming he took on the Lancashire captaincy for 2008 although his participation in the Indian Cricket League was a contributory factor in his being released at the end of 2008. He was snapped up by Derbyshire ahead of 2009.

After the 2011 World Cup, Law briefly acted as Sri Lanka's interim coach before taking charge of Bangladesh. He had some success, leading Bangladesh to their first Asia Cup final but stood down nine months into the job. He returned to Australia, taking up an array of roles, including batting coach to the national team, a job with CA's Centre of Excellence, and coaching the Under-19 team. He took over as coach of Queensland Bulls and Brisbane Heat in 2013, after the posts fell vacant when Darren Lehmann was named Australia coach. He then served as technical advisor to the Bangladesh Under-19 side at the 2016 U-19 World Cup, before taking charge of West Indies in January 2017.
