Master of Employment and Labour Relations Law

  • CRICOS Code: 074995F

Overview

Course structure

Principles of Employment Law is compulsory for students who do not have a law degree from a common law jurisdiction, and it is strongly recommended that this subject be taken before any other Employment and Labour Relations Law subjects.

Principles of Employment Law is also recommended for students who have not studied an equivalent subject in their law degree, or who have not done so recently.

Students must complete 100 credit points in total.

Students who do not have a law degree from a common law jurisdiction must complete; Fundamentals of the Common Law and Principles of Employment Law, as well as at least 37.5 credit points from the list of Employment and Labour Relations Law subjects. The remaining subjects can be taken from the Employment and Labour Relations Law subjects and the Other subjects list.

Students with a law degree from a common law jurisdiction must complete at least 50 credit points from the list of Employment and Labour Relations Law subjects. The remaining subjects can be taken from the Employment and Labour Relations Law subjects and the Other subjects list (excluding Fundamentals of the Common Law).

Subject timing and format

The Melbourne Law Masters program has been designed around the busy schedules of working professionals. Subjects are offered from February to December each year. Most subjects are taught intensively over five days with some subjects taught for two hours each week during the semester.

Subjects delivered online will have a combination of pre-recorded lecture content, live sessions and discussion boards among other resources. On campus subjects involve interactive seminar style classes in the Law Building in Melbourne.

Class sizes are typically limited to 30 students regardless of delivery mode.

Duration

Full time students enrol in 50 credit points per semester (or half year period) and have an expected course duration of one year. Part time* students enrol in 25 credit points per semester (or half year period) and have an expected course duration of two years. Semesters without enrolments require a student to apply for a leave of absence.

*Part time enrolment is for domestic students only. Part time students may reduce their study load to 12.5 credit points per half year period and thus have a maximum course duration of four years.
