1. Undergraduate degree
Applicants for the Melbourne JD (Juris Doctor) must hold an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than law (or a law degree from a different legal system).
2. Graduate degree
General entry applicants for 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.
