This is the final opportunity for prospective 2016 Melbourne Juris Doctor (JD) domestic students to sit the test – an essential requirement in applying for the JD program at Melbourne Law School.

The test will be held on Sunday, 4 October.

This Friday, 4 September is also the final day applications to undertake the Melbourne JD program next year are accepted.

As part of your application to undertake the program, it is a requirement you register for, and sit, the Law School Admission Test.

Upon registering for the LSAT, an LSAC account number will be provided, which is to be included in your JD application.

Associate Dean of the Melbourne JD Associate Professor Jeannie Paterson says it is as much the cohort as it is the calibre of academics, the student experience, the career support and the international opportunities that makes the Melbourne JD such a quality program.

"I am always impressed by the engagement and involvement of our students in the life of the law school and the legal community," she says.

What our students say about the Melbourne JD:

Irene Han is a final year JD student who will soon complete a Bachelor of Civil Law at the University of Oxford.

"Studying law at Melbourne Law School has really helped me to think more critically and more logically in terms of asking why things are the way they are.

"My favourite thing at Melbourne Law School is the people – the friends I have made and the lecturers I've met, and just to be surrounded by so much talent and so many inspired people has really made me feel like I can do anything I want to do."

Claire Wong is a final year JD student who has undertaken a supervised placement with Victorian Legal Aid.

"I was able to interact with clients and apply the information and skills that I had learned at Law School to actually make a positive difference in the lives of real people."

Claire Poyser is a second-year JD student who has interned at the Australian Human Rights Commission and travelled to India with Stop the Traffik to see first-hand the sex trafficking trade and bonded labour at practice.

"My legal education at Melbourne Law School has been first-class. That's undisputed. This is the best law school in the country."Combined with the theory I've learned at Law School, I'm really hoping this will set me up well to practice."
