Public and International Law

The specialisation in public and international law brings together constitutional, administrative and public international law in recognition of the increasing interdependence of international and domestic law.

An extraordinary range of subjects across the entire field of public law offers students access to the latest developments in theory and practice in Australia and elsewhere. The program will appeal both to practitioners and to scholars with backgrounds or interests in government, international institutions, not-for-profit organisations, business/ government relations and international development. Students may specialise in international law, Australian public law or comparative public law, or may choose a range of subjects from across different areas to suit their own interests and needs.

It is no longer possible to understand either domestic or international public law in isolation from each other. This program draws on the Law School’s extraordinary strengths in both areas to provide a deep and integrated understanding of this critical branch of law.

Each of the lecturers for the subjects I have completed has been inspirational, both in terms of their depth of knowledge on the subject and their ability to impart that knowledge. I have also found that the lecturers are very generous in sharing their career experiences as academics or practitioners (or both). Rachel Amamoo, Master of Public and International Law
