    Overview

    From January 2019, the Graduate Diploma in Competition and Consumer Law will be discontinued and replaced with the Graduate Diploma (Global Competition and Consumer Law).

    Many of the subjects in this course will be available wholly online. At least four subjects (taught over five days) will be offered each year on-campus. This change is being made in response to increased student demand for more flexibility in the mode in which they undertake their study and also reflects the highly positive feedback received in relation to the Law School’s wholly online offerings in this specialisation. The Graduate Diploma in Global Competition and Consumer Law will be available on a part-time basis only although allowance will be made for increased study loads in appropriate circumstances.

    Further details about these developments will be provided in due course. In the meantime, any questions should be directed to the Director of Studies, Professor Caron Beaton-Wells.

    The Graduate Diploma in Competition and Consumer Law (GDipCompConsLaw) is designed to give you advanced expertise and skills in an area of law that is growing, complex, interdisciplinary and crucial to economic welfare at national and international levels.

    The course recognises the economic character of the law and offers an applied focus on issues arising in practice, providing you with a detailed understanding of the law regulating competition and consumer protection.  Current policy debates and reform initiatives, as well as international and comparative perspectives, are at the heart of the program.

    As a student in the Graduate Diploma in Competition and Consumer Law, you’ll study four subjects, including up to two subjects in the online Global Competition and Consumer Law Program.

    The Graduate Diploma in Competition and Consumer Law is part of the world-renowned Melbourne Law Masters program.
