Achieving this Postgraduate Diploma indicates that a person has acquired advanced, specialised legal training, and is qualified to work in a multinational legal environment. There are three Diploma programmes on offer at Griffith College, all of which are international in focus - a key advantage in today's globalised legal landscape.
Students can specialise in International Law (General), International Commercial Law or International Human Rights Law, depending on the electives that they select.
The Postgraduate Diploma will be of interest to those who are not in a position to undertake the entire LL.M. programme but still wish to pursue the study of particular aspects of International Law at a postgraduate level. The main difference between the Diploma and the LL.M. is that students on the Diploma programme do not complete the dissertation. Following achievement of the Postgraduate Diploma, it is possible for students to upgrade their qualification to a Degree of Master.
The Postgraduate Diploma is one year in duration or can be split over two years. The student will complete six subjects. In the first semester, the student will complete three mandatory subjects and in the second semester, they will choose three electives.
Depending on the choice of electives they will emerge with a classification of Postgraduate Diploma in International Law, Postgraduate Diploma in Arts in International Human Rights Law, or Postgraduate Diploma in Arts in International Commercial Law.
