Australian JD/ LLB Online


A Stride

Have to say that I've been moved by the generosity of time and effort evident on this discussion board.

Here's hoping some wisdom can be sent this way?

After teaching for many years including 10 years here teaching aboriginal students in remote Australia my family and I feel the time ripe for a career change before I'm considered too old (now 36).

I intend to study P/T (externally) and work F/T for 5 or
6 years before returning to Perth or Melbourne to do practical legal training as I feel that the legal profession will offer me the chance to extend my working career the way teaching will not.

And although my Grade Point Average is good (Distinction average) including my Masters of Education, I think that all members of the G8 require me to be on campus. Please correct me if I am mistaken?
Also are there any reputable JD/LLB courses available online that would you can recommend?

Thanks for time

I think that you will find that it is as you suspect - you will have to be on campus to study law at any of the G8 universities.

At UNSW or Sydney Uni you could probably get away with doing about a year's worth of the 3 year graduate LLB by doing a series of week long "intensive" courses - that would allow you to be elsewhere the rest of the time. The same may be true for other law schools but I'm not familiar with their programs.

Personally, I would note recommend an online JD/LLB degree but if you are looking for one, I know that RMIT and USQ offer an online JD program.

You could perhaps explore completing some subjects online through RMIT/USQ and thereafter transfer to do it on-campus after a few years!

It means "Group of 8" - there are 8 leading research universities in Australia and as a general rule they tend to have better international and domestic rankings! :)

According to my research, after you finish a llb or Jd, to be qualify as solicitor in Australia, you need to complete a practical training course, which is a combination of coursework and on-job training. You check the univiersity who offer such course as well, says combined in the JD study so as to save you time and money.

So even after JD which is three year full time, you still need to enroll in the course. and make sure you can get the training.
