The Master of Administrative Law and Policy (MALP) is designed to provide an understanding of the relationship between law and the analysis and implementation of public policy.
While MALP as a course is located within the Sydney Law School, candidates can undertake units in Law as well in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (Department of Government and International Relations) and the Faculty of Education and Social Work.
The values inherent in administrative law and those of public administration are examined together with the practical aspects of the application of the law. An invaluable feature of the MALP involves the opportunity for government lawyers and policy analysts to learn together within the disciplines of law, government and social policy. The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of the role of government and the rationale for intervention in a range of policy areas.
