Master of Laws (LLM)
Deakin’s Master of Laws has a focus on international commercial law and corporate regulation. The course will equip you with fundamental disciplinary knowledge on important areas of the Australian and international legal system and recent professional practice developments.
The course covers new developments in major areas of human activity (health, financial services, corporate governance), and increased regulation in traditional areas (dispute resolution, human rights, tax) to equip you with a high level of knowledge for an advanced legal career.
The eight credit point course can be completed in one year (full time). On completion, you will have developed advanced research, analytical, evaluative, and communication skills to prepare you for leadership roles in a variety of global careers.
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.
