Competition and Consumer Law

The specialisation in competition and consumer law is a highly innovative and advanced international program that responds to the proliferation of competition and consumer policies and laws, and their increasingly active enforcement, around the world.

This program is designed for professionals in the private and public sectors who are aspiring to build or advance a career in this field. It provides interdisciplinary knowledge and skills through subjects that grapple with the legal, regulatory, economic, political, institutional and social facets of competition policy, law and enforcement.

Melbourne Law School has the only comprehensive program in competition and consumer law in the Asia-Pacific region. It captures the interdisciplinary legal-economic nature of this field of policy and practice, emphasises international and comparative dimensions, and offers students the opportunity to study on-campus and online. Graduates of this program have a world-recognised, highly respected qualification that opens up and enhances global career pathways in the private and public sectors.
