Melbourne Law School’s specialisation in Human Rights Law (GDipHumRightsLaw) offers the widest range of human rights subjects in Australia.

Working with world-renowned experts who teach in the program, and fellow students from Australia and around the world, you’ll have a unique opportunity to examine a range of human rights instruments, institutions, theories and practices in contemporary context.

It’s ideal for lawyers who work, or are planning to work, in the field of human rights, as well as those with a non-law background working in development agencies and other human rights-related organisations in Australia and around the world.

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