The LLM is designed to provide an advanced level of study for both full-time students and those who are legal practitioners or engaged in other full- or part-time employment. It can be undertaken by coursework, research or a combination of both. You can choose from over 25 taught courses and entry to the LLM is available throughout the year.
Designed to be flexible, the Master of Laws offers courses that are taught in different formats. Some courses meet weekly, others are taught in a more compact format.
Block courses are taught over a one-to-two week period, and intensive courses are broken into chunks of eight to twelve hours. They are often taught over two-to-three consecutive evenings or in Friday afternoon and Saturday sessions, with a break of two-to-three weeks between sessions.
Course Cost: $10,300
The Master of Laws (LLM) degree requires at least one year of full-time study, or the equivalent in part-time study. It entails completion of a thesis, and there is no requirement for coursework. The aim is to develop in a candidate the skills needed to understand recent developments in the Law. Applicants must have a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) or Bachelor of Laws with Honours (LLB(Hons)) degree, or alternative qualifications and experience acceptable to the University.
The Master of Laws has a flexible programme structure and suits the objective of a number of students; those who seek to upgrade their skills and knowledge through specialist taught papers, those who wish to combine taught papers with a significant piece of independent research or those students who wish to engage in research only.
The Melbourne Law Masters offers masters degrees, graduate diplomas and single subjects across specialist legal areas to deepen knowledge and understanding in a general or specialised area of law. All areas are led by an expert in the field and many areas are linked with a research centre or institute, which are a valuable academic resource for students.
