JD students wanting to study overseas or focus on global legal practice have access to many exhilarating international opportunities.
Melbourne Law School offers subjects globally that provide students with the opportunity to meet and network with international practitioners at institutional hubs such as Geneva and Washington DC.
JD students can apply to earn an additional degree from our premier law school partners the University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, New York University, University of British Columbia's Peter A Allard School of Law, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the National University of Singapore.
Students have the opportunity to undertake an exhilarating semester of study for credit at our current exchange partners in the USA, Canada, Europe and South America. There are also prospects at other well-recognised law schools in South Africa, Singapore and Israel.
Center for Transnational Legal Studies
Melbourne Law School is the only Australian law school involved in the Center for Transnational Legal Studies (CTLS). Taught by faculty from a consortium of the world's leading law schools, CTLS gives students from 24 schools the chance to come together to study transnational and international legal issues.
Independent Study Abroad
Melbourne Law School recognises the unique opportunities that students can experience internationally. Students can undertake independent programs (summer/winter school) at law schools that are not exchange partners with the University of Melbourne.
The Legal Internship subject gives students the opportunity to undertake a public interest internship for credit towards their JD. Student internships are a great way to develop your legal and professional skills and build your graduate career prospects. JD students can access exclusive opportunities with highly-regarded organisations or source their own internship in an organisation of interest.
