JD intake FAQs

Applications for the 2024 intake are open and will close on 26 September 2023.


  • What are the entry requirements for the 2024 intake?

    Applicants will not be required to sit the LSAT. Your application will be based on all tertiary results (complete and incomplete degrees).

  • When should I apply?

    Applicants who are in their final year of their undergraduate degree should only apply once they have at least 2.5 years’ worth of results (or part time equivalent). This can include exchange studies.

    Applicants who have completed their undergraduate degree can apply at any time up until the application deadline.

  • What if I’m currently doing further tertiary studies?

    You must provide information on all tertiary programs (both undergraduate and postgraduate) which you have attempted or completed, including studies currently being undertaken or incomplete degrees in your application.

  • What score do I need?

    The selection committee looks at a wide range of factors in assessing your previous tertiary results; for example, whether your marks are on an upward or downward trajectory and whether you have undertaken graduate studies. We are unable to advise the score required as this is determined once the application deadline has passed and all applications are ranked by our selection committee. Your application will be assessed against those that are applying for the same intake as you.

    University of Melbourne equivalent scores below 70 are not usually competitive unless supported by a Graduate Access Melbourne (GAM) application. Further information about Graduate Access Melbourne (GAM), including how to apply and what documentation is required is available on the study website.

  • If I’m offered a place for 2024, can I defer my place?

    We will not be approving any deferral applications for the 2024 entry due to the high demand for the course.

    Students who meet the entry requirements through the Melbourne Chancellor’s Scholarship Program and those with a fee place guarantee will be able to defer.
