Melbourne Law Masters a standout for globetrotting graduate

For globetrotting Melbourne Law School graduate Lior Hameiri, studying at Melbourne Law School and living in Melbourne is a standout of his life in the law.


Moving to Melbourne from his native Israel, Mr Hameiri says his decision to pursue further legal studies at Melbourne Law School was a simple one to make.

“When I received the offer from Melbourne Law School, I had no hesitations and I knew I was heading to the land of Down Under.

“I thought it could be an amazing experience to study in a top program, and to live and travel in one of the most beautiful places in the world.”

Mr Hameiri graduated from IDC Herzliya in 2009, where he completed a Bachelor of Laws. After practising law in Israel for one year, he chose to undertake a Master of Laws at Melbourne Law School, specialising in commercial law.

When he graduated from his LLM at Melbourne Law School in 2014, Mr Hameiri travelled to the UK where he worked as a legal and business analyst at London-based consulting company, B.C Strategy UK Ltd. The following year he returned home to Israel where he now serves as an associate attorney at Lipa Meir & Co., one of Israel’s distinguished law firms, as a member of the Corporate & Commercial Department.

His time in Melbourne – a city that is consistently ranked among the world’s most liveable – lived up to his expectations.

“Living in Melbourne was nothing but splendid. The city is beautiful. The local people are extremely friendly and welcoming.”

Studying in the Melbourne Law Masters was also an exceptional experience, Mr Hameiri says.

“The teachers were highly professional and they were able to deliver their messages in a clear and insightful manner.

The subjects I took were very interesting and insightful. I was able to deepen my knowledge of commercial law areas, which contributed to my performance at work.”

But the highlight of his time in Melbourne was spending time with his peers – who quickly became lifelong friends.

“I spent most of my time with other international students who immediately became, and will remain, my family. They truly are the main reason why my time in Melbourne was the best experience of my life.

“Our time together was something I will always cherish.”

For other Israelis who are considering study at Melbourne Law School, Mr Hameiri enthusiastically recommends the experience.

“I had such a great time in Melbourne, and I highly recommend other Israelis to pack their bags and embark on a great journey.”
