The graduate program in commercial law provides advanced offerings in this area for graduates in disciplines other than law. The extensive range of units enables students to develop and enhance their knowledge across the breadth of commercial law that includes corporate, banking and finance, and competition law, or to pursue some selected areas in greater depth. The program is attractive for those who seek to develop or expand a career in this area. The graduate program focuses upon both a thorough grounding in the fundamental principles of commercial law and its practical application as well as addressing advanced and current issues from both a local and international perspective.
The Master of Commercial Law caters for the needs of graduates in disciplines other than law who have an interest in the study of commercial law at an advanced level. It provides a formal course of training for non-law graduates working in law-related fields (eg accountants, company administrators, management personnel etc), and provides opportunities for non-law graduates to obtain a specialist qualification.
The course comprises eight 6-point coursework units or a combination of coursework units and a minor thesis.
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.
