A leading global Law School

Ranked 14th in the world (QS World University Rankings, 2018), UNSW Law School is Australia's leader in progressive and rigorous legal education and research. Grounded in black letter skills and inspired by principles of justice, we study law in action and make a difference in this world.

Program overview

UNSW Master of Laws is a flexible, world-class postgraduate program that offers graduates the opportunity to develop an advanced and contemporary understanding of one or more areas of legal study, to ultimately acquire further expertise and enhance career prospects. 

The UNSW Master of Laws is open to law and non-law graduates. A key feature of the UNSW study experience is the opportunity to engage, network and learn from fellow students and teachers – a more diverse student cohort benefits our students with interdisciplinary perspectives in their fields. The Master of Laws does not qualify you to be admitted to practice law in Australia but is designed to expand knowledge and develop expertise across eight cutting-edge and in demand areas of specialisation.

Students will be able to choose from eight specialisation areas that reflect UNSW Law’s expertise and the latest in legal scholarship. The program has been carefully crafted in consultation with the legal profession in Australia and internationally, and a wide range of industry and academic experts.

2019 LLM specialisation areas:  

Program structure

To incorporate a specialisation you will be required to obtain at least 24 UOC of the 48 UOC required for the award of the degree from the courses allocated to that major sequence. 

Alternatively, students can do a generalist program and choose courses from any or all of our specialisation areas. You will also have the option to enrol in up to two courses from other UNSW faculties.
