Course Description

This four-year accredited graduate degree gives you the chance to build knowledge of the law from a global and social justice perspective.

Explore the law from an international perspective with a focus on current justice issues in this course. Through your subjects, you'll gain practical experience in areas like advocacy, mediation and negotiation, have opportunities to work with judges and magistrates, and undertake placements in real legal workplaces.

The La Trobe Law School moot court gives you the chance to apply skills like client interviewing, witness examination and negotiation. Our mooting team participates in international competitions, so you can demonstrate your knowledge while building connections with lawyers, judges and academics from around the world.

You'll also have an opportunity to attend our winter school in Shanghai, held in partnership with Shanghai University Law School. There, you'll be introduced to the basic concepts and structure of Chinese law.
