1. Undergraduate degree
Applicants to the Melbourne JD (Juris Doctor) must first complete an undergraduate degree in any discipline other than law. Studying an undergraduate degree followed by the JD means you'll graduate with a higher-level qualification than a traditional double degree.
2. Graduate degree
Standard entry applicants to the Melbourne JD also need to sit the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) administered by the Law School Admission Council. It is an independent test designed to measure aptitude for graduate legal study. It focuses on reading, comprehension and verbal reasoning skills, and no knowledge of law is required.
