ASEAN+6 Applied Law LLM
Master of Laws (Applied Law) in ASEAN+6 Legal Practice
The Master of Laws (Applied Law) in ASEAN+6 Legal Practice, or ASEAN+6 Applied Law LLM, is designed to meet the needs of legal professionals engaged in cross-border practice.
ASEAN refers to the Association of South East Asian Nations, which founded the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015.
We will focus primarily on cross-border practice within the 10-nation ASEAN group (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) and the 6 nations (Australia, China, India, Japan, Korea and New Zealand) that comprise the ASEAN+6 regional Free Trade Area. This area is coming together in the new Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).
This programme has been developed by The College of Law in collaboration with the Inter-Pacific Bar Association.
Who is this programme suitable for?
This programme is suitable for all legal professionals who are involved in legal practice in and with the ASEAN+6 region. It will assist you in developing your skills and knowledge across a range of applied law subjects relevant for cross-border practitioners or those seeking to begin cross-border practice.
Why study at the College of Law?
Our experience in Australia has shown that employers and students alike are seeking further academic study in the form of real-world legal education, rather than a theoretical focus.
Being able to apply what you learn means your investment is paying off immediately.
When you undertake our Applied Law LLM programme you will be undertaking practice-based tasks and assessments, not writing essays and doing exams.
You will be able to demonstrate to your current or future employer your commitment to self-development and the desire to progress in your career.
To be eligible for enrolment in the Master of Laws (Applied Law) in Common Law Practice, you will need to provide a certified copy of one of the following:
- Undergraduate law degree from a recognised university
- Proof of admission as a lawyer in any jurisdiction
- Current practising certificate in any jurisdiction
If you have obtained your undergraduate legal qualification in a country where English is not the primary spoken language, you will also need to supply one of the following:
- A certificate that demonstrates your English proficiency in accordance with the IELTS standard at level 8.0 (writing), 7.5 (speaking) and 7.0 (reading)
- Evidence of completion of a degree (does not have to be a law degree) that was taught in the English language
- If you have not met these requirements, you may alternatively complete The College of Law's International Legal English and Professional Skills (ILEPS) programme.
