New Melbourne JD students take part in an orientation program to give them a taste of what studying with us will be like and to ensure that they are well prepared to commence their degree.
The MLS Mentor Program provides an invaluable opportunity for students to develop a supportive relationship with an experienced professional.
Student Life and Societies
The University supports a number of student societies that provide services and activities which are both intellectually stimulating and socially rewarding.
Global learning opportunities
JD students wanting to study overseas or focus on global legal practice have access to many exhilarating international opportunities.
The Legal Internship subject gives students the opportunity to undertake a public interest internship for credit towards their JD. Student internships are a great way to develop your legal and professional skills and build your graduate career prospects. JD students can access exclusive opportunities with highly-regarded organisations or source their own internship in an organisation of interest.
Public Interest Law Initiative
The Public Interest Law Initiative (PILI) is a hub for public interest law and debate at Melbourne Law School. PILI's range of clinical subjects enable students to contribute to the work of our community law partners and learn by working with real clients to solve real legal problems.
Mooting and Competitions
Mooting and other student competitions are a great way to consolidate the material you learn during your studies and improve your legal and advocacy skills. We encourage all our students to take part – it's a lot of fun and looks great on your résumé!
Melbourne Law School graduates enjoy fulfilling and successful careers in a range of sectors. We provide specialised services to help students achieve their career aspirations and work with employers to create opportunities exclusively for our students.
