Master of Laws

Where will your degree take you?

The Master of Laws will facilitate your specialisation in one or more specific areas of law whether your chosen practice area or an area of interest. 

The LLM can expand your knowledge of the law and enhance your career prospects. It can also be a pathway into an academic career.



Upon being admitted to the legal profession, you can work as a solicitor in a law firm, in a government organisation or with a community legal centre. You can choose to specialise in a particular area of practice or be a generalist. The size of law firms ranges from large, medium, small or boutique.


Upon being admitted to the legal profession and completing the bar practice course, you can work as a barrister. A barrister is an independent advocate and advisor and is often highly skilled in a particular area of law.

In-house counsel

Upon being admitted to the legal profession, you can work as an In-House Counsel, where you will use your legal skills for the benefit of a particular organisation. You will often be involved in a range of areas of law particular to the needs of the organisation and therefore not specialise in one area of law.

Non-legal Profession

Graduating with a law degree doesn’t necessarily require you to be admitted to the legal profession – the program builds a wide array of legal skills that can be used cross-disciplinarily, including critical thinking, analysis, problem solving, conflict resolution and advocacy. You’ll be equipped to work in non-legal roles like management consulting, politics, journalism, human resources, investment banking and more.

Program learning outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes provide a broad and measurable set of standards that incorporate a range of knowledge, skills and abilities that will be achieved on completion of the program. These outcomes will help you determine whether this program aligns with your professional pathway, career and learning goals.
