PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Master of Laws is a postgraduate law qualification that provides maximum flexibility and choice with a wide range of specialist areas, meaning you can design your master’s degree to suit your area of interest and professional needs.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

You must complete 8 subjects:
Compulsory Law Subject (1)

  • Advanced Legal Reasoning, Research, and Writing

Law Electives (7)

  • Dispute Resolution
  • International Business and Finance Law

Students are able to opt out of a specialization but must take all electives (total 70cp) from the postgraduate offerings in the Faculty of Law. No general electives are offered in this program.
If appropriate supervision is available, you may elect to replace two elective subjects with a minor dissertation upon approval by the Faculty of Law.
