From an undergraduate Combined Law program to the postgraduate Juris Doctor and Master's degrees, our law degrees deliver depth, breadth, and a distinguished legal education from one of the world’s best law schools.
Our Juris Doctor is a graduate entry professional law degree that provides a pathway into the legal profession for graduates of other disciplines. With full time or part time study options, you'll gain the academic knowledge and skills for admission to practise law in Australia.
Our flagship Master of Laws provides lawyers with expert in-depth specialist legal knowledge. Specialist Masters and Graduate Diplomas offer opportunities for both lawyers and non-lawyers to gain or extend their knowledge in one of many areas of the law.
Our postgraduate research degrees equip you for careers in advanced research, policy development, public service, tertiary teaching or professional leadership. Work alongside some of the world’s brightest and most accomplished academics.
Postgraduate students can choose to study individual units of study in specialist areas. You have the flexibility to complete these in intensive mode or throughout the semester and they can be credited towards a degree program in the future.
