Graduate Certificate in Laws

The UTS Graduate Certificate in Laws (GradCertLL) caters to the changing demands of the legal profession. Providing the opportunity for law graduates to specialise in particular areas that are relevant to their area of legal practice, the UTS GradCertLL is vocationally relevant and intellectually rewarding.

Successful interaction between the legal profession and UTS: Law guarantees a close match between a first-class education and a marketable postgraduate legal qualification. Classes are taught by a mix of practising professionals, full-time academic staff and international visiting academics, and opportunities for cross-institutional study, both inside and outside Australia, are encouraged. 

NOTE -
Students from a non-common law background are also required to enrol in the subject 79708 Contemporary Business Law instead of the subject 78234 Common Law Legal Traditions in their first year of study for 2020.
