Indigenous Alternative Entry Pathway

Melbourne Law school offers an alternative entry pathway for Indigenous applicants to the JD Program.

All Indigenous students at MLS will receive a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP), where the government pays part of the fees.

In order to be considered for entry via the Indigenous entry pathway, applicants must have completed:

  • a tertiary degree in a discipline other than law or a degree in law from a different legal system; and,
  • an informal interview with members of the Indigenous Pathway Sub-Committee of the MLS JD Selection Committee.

The Selection Committee will consider the applicant’s academic performance in their tertiary studies, and the interview. The interview is intended to provide a face-to-face opportunity for Indigenous applicants to speak to their professional and personal experiences and their reasons for applying to the MLS JD Program. Applicants may contact Eddie Cubillo, Director of the Indigenous Law and Justice Hub, for further information about the purpose and structure of the interview.
