Graduate Diploma of Professional Accounting and Law
Deakin’s Graduate Diploma of Professional Accounting and Law is designed for graduates who need specialist legal knowledge in their roles (regulatory, compliance or risk management positions), and who wish to combine this knowledge with an accounting qualification.
Graduates will have gained a solid grounding in accounting and commercial law, through undertaking a selection of specialized accounting and law elective units. You may then be eligible to articulate into the Master of Professional Accounting and Law.
The Melbourne Burwood Campus is Deakin’s largest. A short trip from Melbourne’s central business district, Burwood offers the perfect balance between city lifestyle and suburban comfort. On campus you will find impressive buildings and world-class facilities, a wide range of learning and social spaces, and a relaxed atmosphere. If you enjoy getting outdoors between classes, the Melbourne Burwood Campus also sits alongside parkland, which is great for walking, jogging and cycling.

Job Opportunity Potential
Graduates of this course would typically seek employment in areas of accounting such as financial accounting, auditing, taxation, management accounting, public sector accounting, forensic accounting, or commercial law. However, accountants can choose to work in a range of different environments depending on their own skills and preferences. They can choose to work in large firms, small public practices, industry, government, law firms, management consultancies, banking and financial services, not-for-profit organizations (NPOs), or educational organizations. Many also set up their own businesses.
Given the fundamental shift of accountants towards a wide-ranging advisory role, career opportunities are also becoming available in other vocations including working as financial planners, investment advisers, market analysts, tax consultants, advisers in mergers and acquisitions, in corporate recovery and insolvency, treasury banking, e-commerce or information technology.
