Thinking about an LLM in Australia


srasure08
Hi everybody!

I'm thinking about doing an LLM in Australia, here is my short list:

- UNSW Law: LLM (with specialization probably in Corporate, Commercial and Taxation Law)
- University of Sydney: LLM with specialization in Corporate Securities and Finance Law
- University of Melbourne: LLM / Banking & Finance OR the Master of Banking and Finance Law

Is anybody else applying for these or other programs in Australia? What do you think about these schools and how they compare? I would love any feedback!

Those 3 Australia law schools are among the best law schools in the world which offer banking, finance, corporate, and taxation specialisation. However, when it comes to decision to prefer, you have to pay attention on your need. As an illustration, if you aim to work as a legal counsel focusing on financial transactions, it means LLM in banking and finance will suit your passion. Remember, either banking and finance or corporate and taxation has its own study perspective. Although both studies look the same, they are diverse.

According to my minor research on those 3 law schools, I discovered that Melbourne Law proposes better elective courses in banking and finance law. On the other hand, I shall suggest you to select either Usyd or Unsw if you want to specialise on corporate matters. Remember, Australia's biggest law firm - Herbert Smith Freehills, is located in Sydney. You may have a chance to do internship with the law firm when you come to Sydney.

Anyway, I am an awardee of Australia Government Scholarship and aim to study either at Sydney or UNSW Law school in June 2020.
