Australia's UNSW Law to Refresh its LL.M. Offerings for 2019

School will offer a single LL.M. which will be open to applicants with or without a law degree; eight specializations, including one in Human Rights Law and Policy, will be on offer

Starting in 2019, Australia's UNSW Law will consolidate its postgraduate law offerings. 

Currently, the school offers an LL.M. aimed at law graduates, as well as a Master of Business Law degree, which is aimed at those without a background in law. However, beginning next year, the school will offer a single LL.M. program, which will be open to those with a law degree and those without.

According to the school, the updated program will provide "deeper insight of how the law operates in society and the economy." The school also notes that offering an LL.M. that is open to both law professionals and those without a law degree is a first for an Australian law firm.

UNSW's LL.M. will offer eight specializations:

  • Chinese and International Business and Economic Law 
 
  • Corporate, Commercial and Taxation Law 
 
  • Criminal Justice and Criminology 
 
  • Dispute Resolution 
 
  • Environmental Law and Sustainable Development 
 
  • Human Rights Law and Policy 
 
  • International Law 
 
  • Media, Intellectual Property and Technology Law 
 

UNSW will continue to offer its Master of Business Law program for the fall 2018 intake.
