You have the flexibility to pursue particular areas of interest through elective subject selection. Offering more than 45 electives each year, the JD program continually evolves to reflect current developments in law and legal practice.
You also have the opportunity to undertake an elective from the Melbourne Law Masters, where you will share a classroom with practitioners from Australia's premier organisations and institutions, in special interest areas such as international and human rights law.
