Qualifications for a LLM in Australia


raicullen
Hello All,

I am currently an international student in UK. I have finished my LLB (externally) from University of London with a 2:2 ( Second Class Hons.) and now I am pursuing LLM in Int'l Commercial Law from University of Northumbria in Newcastle. However, my LLM is not really going well and though the examination board is still reviewing its a possiblity that I will just be given a post-graduate certificate in law and not a Masters degree. Now, what I would like to ask is, how long it may take to enroll in an australian university for a LLM with my UK LLB and also what should be the duration of the course and how can I get into the practice field of law in australia from there and also pursue for permanent residence. Thanks

Dear Raicullen,

you should check out the following link as it will explain the arrangements for becoming qualified for australian jurisdictions:

www.collaw.edu.au

There are other sites in Australia but you'll need to do a search yourself. Different states and territories have different requirements for admission. But, once you are admitted in one you can easily transfer to any of he other jurisdictions.

You can easily enrol in an Australian University and get credit for your passed subjects. There are many distance education sites including but not limited to:

www.qut.edu.au
www.une.edu.au
www.scu.edu.au

Prior to commencing the Aussie LLM make sure that you check what the requirements are for admission. Then you will know what subjects to take.

It is likely that the subjects required for admission will not form part of an LLM but you need to check because I am uncertain about this particular aspect.

The duration of masters courses is usually 12 months full-time for an 8 subject masters but there are some 12 subjects and even 16 subject masters available.

UNSW used to run a 6 subject masters degree.

You will note that some universities base their masters courses on a trimester instead of a semester.
