Melbourne Law School is Australia's first all-graduate faculty. The Melbourne Law School was the first faculty in Australia to teach law, and awarded this country's first law degrees. We have now committed ourselves to build on our more than 150 year history of excellence and innovation by shifting from undergraduate legal education to the global standard, graduate level Juris Doctor degree.
Faculty members associated with the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies teach in all programs of the Law School and supervise graduate researchers.

Subjects may be taken singly or towards a Diploma, a Specialist Masters degree, or the LLM. Anyone potentially interested in the program is welcome and encouraged to discuss subject selection with the Director of Studies, Professor Jason Varuhas.
