Why a masters of applied 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 learned today, tomorrow, 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.
