International Law

Melbourne Law School has an unusually large number of talented and engaged international lawyers on its teaching staff. As a consequence, the Melbourne Law Masters is able to offer an unparalleled selection of subjects in a wide variety of international legal sub-fields. It is hard to think of another program with equivalent depth and range.

The Melbourne Law Masters offers an extensive range of international law subjects. Students can study in many fields, including international humanitarian law, international criminal law, international economic law, finance, tax, law and development or international arbitration. International legal practitioners, those working in international agencies or non-government organisations, as well as those wishing to go on to further study in international law will benefit greatly from the specialised knowledge and expertise that this specialisation provides. The program’s diversity, with specific or general subjects available in both public and private international law, allows students to specialise in a key area or gain a broader qualification in international law.
