What will I study?


The Melbourne Law Masters program offers an exciting range of subjects that can be undertaken without enrolling in a formal degree. Available to both law and non-law graduates, single subject enrolment is a great way to advance your professional knowledge in a specific area of law.

Single subjects may be undertaken with or without assessment however in order to gain credit to a course, you must complete the subject with assessment. The application closing date is generally two weeks before the start of teaching.

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.

For detailed subject information, see the Handbook: Master of Laws.
