Raising the global bar

The Master of Laws (LLM) provides law and non-law graduates with a flexible postgraduate opportunity to develop advanced, integrated and contemporary knowledge in one or more areas of legal study. The LLM is a sophisticated degree with substantial consideration of relevant international, professional and transdisciplinary aspects of the law which will enhance student career expertise and prospects. 

The program develops advanced legal research and writing skills and enhances the ability of students to critically evaluate complex legal issues within a global context. All students will have the opportunity to apply their legal knowledge and skills by conducting independent research and by engaging in analytical studies on specialised topics in the student’s areas of interest. The course offers an invaluable opportunity for law graduates without experience in a legal environment to be supervised and mentored by experienced legal practitioners through a legal placement unit. There is no tuition fee associated with this unit and the unit may be undertaken at the same time as the academic units. 

Students may select a specialisation in International Governance. This specialisation enables students to enhance their knowledge and skills of both private and public law issues related to corporate governance, with a strong theoretical core, and a series of units providing specialist information and skills.
