The Melbourne Law Masters is a graduate law program of the highest quality, available to law and non-law graduates.

Subjects in the Melbourne Law Masters are available as single subject enrolments, either with or without assessment.

Undertaking a single subject is an ideal way to acquire an in-depth understanding of major new developments in law or new skills in a particular legal area.

Distance or online studies

With the exception of study in the area of Global Competition and Consumer Law, it is currently not possible to undertake a subject by distance learning. Students must attend at least 75% of classes for each subject. However, the intensive teaching format enables students from interstate or overseas to fly to Melbourne to attend a subject over five (5) days, either taught from Monday – Friday or Wednesday – Tuesday, excluding the weekend. Subject readings are made available approximately four (4) weeks prior to commencement of classes and assessment is submitted online or arrangements can be made to sit supervised exams externally.
