    Overview

    The Graduate Diploma in Government Law (GDipGovtLaw) is designed to provide you with expertise in matters that lie at the cutting-edge of government law in Australia and elsewhere.

    As a student, you’ll gain an advanced understanding of the framework of law and practice in which government operates, which includes not only constitutional and administrative law but also a host of particular legal regimes that apply to government actors. This constantly changing branch of the law lends itself to comparison between countries, allowing you to understand the different ways of tackling problems and how to draw lessons from them.

    It’s available for both law and non-law graduates and the flexible structure makes it ideal for working professionals looking to immerse themselves in this dynamic branch of the law.

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