Asian Law

The specialisation in Asian law is ideal for lawyers and other professionals dealing with Asian legal systems in commercial, legal or policy capacities, or for researchers and scholars interested in Asia.

International and domestic students will benefit from the diverse choice of subjects, exposure to teaching staff who speak Asian languages, and access to the Asian Law Centre – Australia’s first and largest centre devoted to developing understandings of Asian laws and legal systems. Covering a range of Asian legal systems and societies, the program offers insights into laws and institutions and their reforms and practices that will determine how governments, businesses and broader stakeholders interact within and across borders.

Today’s global professionals need to understand the diversity of legal systems and practices in Asia. In this course, students will debate the issues and challenges in Asian regional legal development.
