Overview

You're invited to our JD webinar

Join us on Tuesday 9 June to hear Mr Arlen Duke, Associate Dean (JD), discuss the structure of the JD, the benefits of a graduate law degree, career services including our law mentoring program, the entry requirements and how to apply for the 2021 intake. It's also a good opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.

The Melbourne JD (Juris Doctor) is a three-year graduate law degree that has set a benchmark for legal education in Australia. It is available if you already have an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than law or if you have a law degree from a different legal system.

The Melbourne JD equips you with the skills and knowledge to take a leading role in a range of careers including legal practice, business, government and community organisations.

You will be taught by respected academics who are genuine leaders in their fields in Australia and around the world, who draw on legal research and practice to deliver an intellectually challenging degree.

Your JD experience will be as much about your fellow students as your teachers. The cohort system means that you will complete your first semester classes with the same group of students, making it easier to get to know your classmates, develop friendships and build your network.

You will study in small, seminar-style, discussion-based classes with students from a range of undergraduate backgrounds, adding new perspectives and approaches to your learning.
