International Law

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 and aspiring practitioners, those working, or hoping to work in international agencies or non-government organisations, and 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.

Melbourne Law School has an unusually large number of talented and engaged international lawyers on its teaching staff. Because of this, and its strong global networks, 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.
