A CLASS ABOVE
INTERNATIONAL LAW
Melbourne Law School has an extraordinary number
of talented and engaged international lawyers on its
teaching staff. As a consequence, the Melbourne Law
Masters is able to offer an unparalleled selection of
subjects in a wide variety of international legal sub-fields.
It is hard to think of another program with equivalent
depth and range.
The Melbourne Law Masters offers an extensive range of subjects in international
law. Students can study in many fields, including international humanitarian
law, international criminal law, international economic law, finance, tax, law and
development or international arbitration. International legal practitioners, as well
as those working in international agencies or non-government organisations, will
benefit greatly from the specialised knowledge and expertise that this specialisation
provides. The program’s diversity, with specific or general subjects available in public
and private international law, allows students to specialise in a key area or gain a
broader qualification in international law.
