This course has been developed to offer maximum flexibility and choice for law graduates, with a broad range of units that enables students to individually tailor the degree to suit their interests and professional needs.
The Master of Laws aims to provide further education to lawyers to assist them to update their skills, specialise in specific areas of the law and undertake research. It may also contribute to continuing legal education and professional development. The course, in terms of course structure, teaching methods, class times and venues, is designed with the interests of part-time students particularly in mind.
The course comprises eight 6-point coursework units or a combination of coursework units and a minor thesis. The course can be completed with or without a specialisation.
Students must complete one of the following options:
In order to qualify to undertake one of the minor thesis options, a student must have achieved a minimum of 70 per cent in each of the coursework units undertaken. Information on the minor thesis option is available at http://www.law.monash.edu.au/current-students/enrol/re-enrol.html.
