The Master of Legal Practice is designed for LLB, LLB(Hons) and JD graduates who wish to be admitted to legal practice and to undertake further graduate study in law and/or to advance their career in professional practice.
Students have the option of exiting with a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice after the initial 48 units, or continuing study to complete the Masters. Once students have completed the initial 48 units of LEGW coded courses, they will be able to apply for direct admission as a legal practitioner in most Australian jurisdictions, or reciprocal admission in the others.
The program offers a variety of courses focussing on developing depth and sophistication in areas of legal practice and/or other sub-disciplines. The program brings together academics and experienced practitioners to offer students a synthesis of the academic and the practical towards an aim of practice informed by evidence and theory.
