The Bond University Faculty of Law has since 2015 partnered with the Swiss International Law School to offer a Master of Laws Dual Award program. Students in the dual award program are able to graduate with an LLM from both institutions by completing half of the required subjects and modules within each of the LLM programs. Swiss International Law School (SiLS) and Bond are collaborating on new subjects and specialisations that focus on international commercial law and international dispute resolution. The partners wish to consolidate SiLS subject delivery with the Bond LLM structure Subject to approval, the collaboration is expected to announce new LLM subjects soon. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact [email protected]@bond.edu.au
The Swiss International Law School’s LLM prepares students and practitioners from different cultural and legal backgrounds for confident and ethical legal practice in an international commercial environment. The program is completely web based and applies state-of-the-art distance learning techniques that bridge the distance putting students in close contact with faculty, peers and resources. Classes of not more than 20 students are supervised by two course leaders who are experienced professors or senior lecturers.

This unique degree programme explores how the law responds to, regulates and promotes new and emerging technologies.
The programme promotes advanced knowledge and understanding of the relationship between law, technology, commerce and society in the widest possible sense.
This unique and internationally focused LLM programme explores how the law responds to, regulates, and promotes new and emerging technologies.
Innovative technologies and convergence in technologies are causing unprecedented societal change. New legal issues are arising, and new regulatory responses emerging. The law can help – or hinder – society’s ability to reap the optimal rewards from technological development.
Across the programme, you will study different modes of regulation – the law, the markets, the technology itself – and critically analyse the advantages and disadvantages of each. The potential of technology to support legal and judicial processes is also examined.
This LLM will enable you to develop an advanced knowledge of domains where law engages with technology, awareness of the problems in the area and understanding of the differing approaches to their solution.
