The JD course comprises 24 subjects, including 17 compulsory subjects required for admission to legal practice within Australia.
You have the flexibility to pursue particular areas of interest through elective subject selection. Offering more than 45 electives each year, the JD program continually evolves to reflect current developments in law and legal practice.
You also have the opportunity to undertake an elective from the Melbourne Law Masters, where you will share a classroom with practitioners from Australia's premier organisations and institutions, in special interest areas such as international and human rights law.
If you are a student at an international law school incoming exchange opportunities are available.
